Salvation

There are some very important questions about salvation that need to be totally understood:

1. What is salvation?

2. Who is eligible to receive salvation and be saved?

3. When does salvation begin?

4. Where can salvation take place?

5. Why is salvation so important?

6. How can I be saved and accept this salvation?

These are questions many people have stumbled and fumbled over for years. Many Christians do not even partially understand what salvation is all about. Therefore, it is more than necessary that we cover this topic to begin with for without it, the rest of this class is useless and any one trying to walk as a child of GOD without it is simply living a big lie and fooling themselves!

1. What is salvation?

A. Biblical implied definition---being delivered from the deadly clutches and eternal effects of sin.

B. Understanding the makeup of all humans by GOD

1. We all are made spirit first

2. We have been given possession of a soul

3. We all have been temporarily housed in a body

C. Salvation is the first step we must all make if we want to be pleasing and accepted by GOD!

2. Who is eligible to receive salvation and be saved?

A. Anyone is able to receive it based on their willingness to believe!

B. What we must all do to even have a chance to be saved…

1. Realize that we are totally lost and have no fellowship with GOD!

a. Admit that we have sinned (Romans 3:23)

b. Admit that we have been living wrong before GOD

c. Realize that being good-natured does not mean we are saved.

d. Understand that JESUS CHRIST is the Way to GOD, the Truth in GOD and the only Life through GOD that no one can get to the Father without (John 14:6)

2. Realize that salvation is a willfully conscience decision made when we accept that no matter what we have or have accomplished, we are still ultimately helpless and empty without GOD in our lives!

3. When does salvation begin?

A. Salvation begins at the point where a person has been exposed to the life-changing Word of GOD and conscientiously realizes that they can not possibly have the Peace of GOD until they fully give themselves to GOD!

B. Confession has to be made that:

1. JESUS CHRIST is the only begotten Son of GOD!

2. JESUS CHRIST has died for your sins!

3. JESUS CHRIST paid your penalty of death in your place!

4. JESUS CHRIST has been resurrected from the dead by GOD never to die again!

C. At the point where a person can confess this with their mouth and believe it totally within their heart, salvation begins to clean them and make them as GOD would have them to be.

D. Special note: It should be understood that salvation is a process and not an immediate perfecting!

E. Salvation begins to clean us and help make us into what GOD would have us to be so that, even in the slightest of changes that GOD begins to be pleased with, we can affirm that we are not what we ought to be, but we truly thank GOD that He has made us to be better than what we used to be!

4. Where can salvation take place?

A. It is not necessary to be in an actual church building to be saved!
