Victory Can Be Yours!
The question has been asked, what is salvation, and what does it mean? Of the thousands of words in our English language the most dynamic single word is salvation. Salvation means, to affect successfully the full delivery of someone from impending danger. The word carries with it a twofold implication. One is that someone needs to be saved; the other is that someone is able and willing to save. If you are sick, you need a doctor who is qualified and willing to care for you. If you are accused, you need a lawyer who is qualified and willing to defend you. If you are lost, you need someone qualified and willing to find you. We are all born lost in sin and are in danger, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) God states in His word there must be a payment for this sin. “For the wages of sin is death….” (Romans 6: 23) Therefore, you have a need to be saved from sin and death, eternal condemnation, separation from God.
There is only One, who is qualified and willing to save a person from the judgment of God. Many have, throughout history, claimed to be the savior, but there are certain qualifications which must be met. He must come from the lineage of David; He must be born of a virgin; He must be both God and man; He must triumph in victory over death. Jesus Christ has fulfilled all of these requirements.
If you were given the choice between being rich or poor, what would your answer be? If you were given the choice between having good health or being ill, what would your answer be? Now, God has given you a choice, between eternal life or eternal death, heaven or hell. Your eternal destiny will be decided by the choice you make. Jesus spoke of this in the gospel of John when He said that all people will be resurrected, some to life with God, and some to condemnation. All will have a physical presence forever. (John 5: 28, 29) What will you choose?
There is One qualified and willing to help you and that is Jesus Christ. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” (John 14: 6)
