What is salvation? This question is a crucial one to understand. Salvation is being rescued from spiritual death and raised to spiritual life. Resurrection is the only means for you to have life. That’s what God wants for you. It is his first priority. Nothing else can happen until you have been made alive spiritually. That’s why Jesus came to earth. As he said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
A miracle of new life occurs every time someone turns to Christ by faith. Someone dead in sin is born again of the Spirit and is raised to walk in the newness of life. That is the power of the gospel, the amazing grace God pours out on those who look to him for life. To be saved by grace means you have been made alive with Jesus Christ. You were dead, and now you are alive in him.
