What Is God’s Complete Salvation in the Bible?

Have you ever wondered whether God’s salvation is only to save us from eternal perdition? Wonderful as that is, if that’s all, then what’s the meaning of the rest of our lives on earth? The Bible tells us that God’s salvation includes much more than we might have thought. It’s a complete salvation.

Sinners, Enemies, and Sons of God in Romans

In several previous posts, we discussed how God’s wonderful salvation for us includes both our redemption and salvation from eternal perdition. In the book of Romans, the apostle Paul unveils the salvation of God in full. With the help of some notes in the New Testament Recovery Version, let’s gain an even broader, deeper view of God’s salvation.

The Two Halves of the Gospel in Romans 5:10

When we read through the Bible, Romans 1:15 may not stand out too much to us. In it Paul says, “For my part, I am ready to announce the gospel to you also who are in Rome.” On the surface, this sentence seems quite ordinary and unsurprising; after all, Paul preached the gospel to many people. But in verses 6-7, Paul clearly states who he was writing to: “the called ones of Jesus Christ,” “the...

I’m Saved! What Comes Next?

You’re not alone if you’ve asked yourself this question. Many of us didn’t know what came next after we received the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior.

But believing in Jesus Christ is just the beginning of our Christian life. So much more lies ahead! Let’s...

The Danger of Thinking You Can Lose Your Salvation

In another post we discussed one of the biggest questions a Christian may have: Can I lose my salvation? We saw the clear and definite assurance the Bible gives us that once we believe in Christ and receive Him as our Savior, we’re saved eternally. We can’t lose our salvation. But here’s another question: Does it make any difference whether we know we can’t lose our salvation? The answer is yes...

A Question about the Unforgivable Sin

We received the comment and questions below from someone who read our post, “Can You Lose Your Salvation?”: “I am so glad that I was able to find this article. I know that God’s decisions cannot be changed and that He holds us in His hands. Yet I still feel insecure about my salvation. Can you please answer these questions: Is the unforgivable sin not accepting Jesus as Savior? Can a Christian...

Can You Lose Your Salvation?

Have you ever been troubled by questions like these: Can you lose your salvation? Can you be “unsaved” if you do something wrong or if you sin? It’s extremely important for us believers to be clear about several fundamental matters. One of these is having the assurance that we’re saved once we believe in Christ. Another fundamental matter we must be clear about is the security of our salvation...

Assurance of Salvation: How Do I Know I’m Saved?

Although we believed in the Lord Jesus and received Him as our Savior, at times we may have wondered, “How do I know I’m saved?” Sometimes we feel we’re definitely saved; at other times, we’re not so sure. When we’re tossed back and forth between certainty and uncertainty, it’s difficult for us to progress in our Christian life. But we don’t have to be unsure, since God provides three clear ways...

What Happens When a Person Gets Saved?

When we repent to God and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, some wonderful things happen to us. We are forgiven of all our sins and delivered from God’s condemnation and eternal punishment. As a result, for the first time in our lives we have untold happiness and peace. We can’t help but love the Lord Jesus who died for us on the cross.

3 Major Steps in God’s Plan of Salvation after the Fall of Man

We discussed previously how we were created by God for His own purpose and plan but became fallen, sinful, and unable to live in a way that fulfills God’s plan. The consequences of the fall of mankind are tragic, and we see the effect both in our own lives and everywhere we look today. But God can never be defeated! And though frustrated, God’s plan cannot be derailed. In His wisdom, God took...
