God’s Salvation

November 24, 2018

There are so many confusing things in religion–not just the religions of the world, but even within the teaching and life of Christianity. Subtle inroads are made to interject ourselves into the salvation process. Even in those Reformation Christians, it sneaks in to equal faith and works. We may come to believe that God saves, but is it sort of a general “salvation made available” thing, and in order for it to be ours or to be maintained, it really is up to us and our actions? Some push this so far that our performance justifies God, believing that, in some warped sense, by our obedience we become God’s savior before the universe and justify his work. The psalmist is clear, and so should we be: “I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.”
