The Redeemer in Salvation

Titus 3:6 AV
Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
There is no question who the Saviour is, the Bible makes it clear!
Joseph Smith cannot save you
Mohamed can’t save
The Pope can’t save
Mother Earth doesn’t save
Buddha can’t save
Acts 4:12 AV
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Isaiah 43:11 AV
I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
Turn to 2 Corinthians
2 Corinthians 11:4 AV
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
2 Corinthians 11:13–15 AV
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

The Recognition in Salvation

Titus 3:7 AV
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Justification is God declaring that we are righteous.
Judge with Gavel illustration
During a British conference on comparative religions, experts from around the world debated what, if any, belief was unique to the Christian faith. They began eliminating possibilities. Incarnation? Other religions had different versions of gods appearing in human form. Resurrection? Again, other religions had accounts of return from death.
The debate went on for some time until C. S. Lewis wandered into the room. “What’s the rumpus about?” he asked, and heard in reply that his colleagues were discussing Christianity’s unique contribution among world religions. Lewis responded, “Oh, that’s easy. It’s grace.” After some discussion, the conferees had to agree.
The notion of God’s love coming to us free of charge, no strings attached, seems to go against every instinct of humanity. The Buddhist eightfold path, the Hindu doctrine of Karma, the Jewish covenant, and the Muslim code of law—each offers a way to earn approval. Only Christianity dares to make God’s love unconditional.
—Philip Yancey, What’s So Amazing about Grace? (Zondervan, 1997)
Romans 5:8 AV
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 John 4:10 AV
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 2:2 AV
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Romans 3:25 AV
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
God declares us righteous on the basis that Jesus satisfied the payment for our sins
The debt was “paid in full”
Hebrews 8:12 AV
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Hebrews 10:17 AV
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

The Riches in Salvation

Titus 3:7 AV
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
“Salvation makes us heirs of the greatest fortune anywhere”
Romans 8:17 AV
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
We are blessed beyond our comprehension
1 Corinthians 2:9 AV
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

The Realm of Salvation

Titus 3:7 AV
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Salvation lasts forever
1 Peter 1:5 AV
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
John 10:28 AV
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
