The Salvation Package

Key Scripture

2 Thessalonians 2:13-14
[13]As for us, we can’t help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are always thankful that God chose you to be among the first to experience salvation—a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and through your belief in the truth.
[14]He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are a Christian or you have come across one, you’ll have probably heard the word salvation before, it’s a term that basically means “to save”, or “to be saved”. We are saved from the horrors of hell, and are able on this earth to have a relationship with God based on His kind and loving nature which we discover daily.

One issue that has raised a couple of eyebrows is how a man can be saved. What’s the process? and what steps are supposed to be taken? I’ve heard a lot about this, and there are so many opinions out there, but the truth is there’s just one way to experience this salvation from Jesus. Let’s take a look at our key scripture one more time to find some answers:

2 Thessalonians 2:13-14
[13]As for us, we can’t help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are always thankful that God chose you to be among the first to experience salvation—a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and through your belief in the truth.
[14]He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ

Verse 13 explains that salvation comes through the Spirit, meaning that Gods Spirit is the media through which we are saved, how? By making us Holy, set apart, God’s own. Anything that God dwells in is His and is regarded as holy, so if God dwells in you then you are holy, and that is exactly what God does:

Ephesians 1:13 – And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago

How do we then receive this Spirit, well there’s only one way spoken off in our key scripture, and through out the Bible, and its by faith in the gospel message. Our key scripture puts it this way “through your belief in the truth”, and what is this truth? Well the next verse highlights this, that’s the good news. The good news is the simple yet powerful message that Jesus died, was buried and rose, so that anyone who believes in Him would be made righteous before God. The moment a person believes this and trusts this message, the person is saved. It doesn’t get more basic than this…there have been alot of complex explanations about this, but this is the simple truth, place your faith in Jesus and you experience the salvation power of God.

#pray

Thank you Lord for the gift and simplicity of salvation, I get better daily in my knowledge and walk with you, amen.
