Salvation Lessons are important, especially to the new convert who is just learning about the Christian faith.
Since we have all sinned against God, we need divine deliverance from the powers of sin. Therefore a good understanding about GOD'S salvation plan is critically important.
The noun Salvation showed up more than one hundred times in the Bible. The word Salvation means deliverance, preservation and safety, indicating the nature of our deliverance from sin and satan.
Often times in the Scriptures, the word salvation is used to describe deliverance from physical danger and death. When Pharaoh was pursuing the Israelites, Moses spoke to the people and said: "Fear not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord." (Exodus 14:13)
The Scripture also made it clear that Pharaoh didn't stand a chance against God's people. Because there was a miraculous deliverance of the children of Israel from the whole army of Pharaoh and the Egyptians coming to kill them.
The chapter concludes with these words; "Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians.." (Exodus 14:30).
When Peter began to sink in the sea he cried; "Lord, save me" This is demonstrating the saving nature of our LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ.
And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
In both of these lessons, salvation denotes deliverance from physical danger and possible death. The Apostle James was also referring to salvation when he said:
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Salvation lessons also teaches that, "If our gospel be hid, it is hid to men that are lost."
This Lesson means that if salvation was clearly presented to a man and he received it not, he is lost and therefore not saved, because "the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost" (Luke 19:10).
Therefore if a man recognizes that he is lost, and wholeheartedly repent and get baptized in the name of the LORD and receives the gift of the Holy Ghost... he also receives God's great salvation. However a man must first realize that he is lost before he can see the need to be saved.
No man can argue his way out of the divine charge of his sinful ways. God made a universal proclamation that all men are sinners by nature and by choice.
"What then? Are we better than they? No, in no wise; for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one"
(Romans 3:9, 10)
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)
A grand and glorious future awaits the child of God at the consummation of his salvation. The Bible said that, in order for us to be saved from the possibility of sins, we will need a new body, one that is immortal and glorified.
The Apostle Paul wrote... "We grown within ourselves, waiting for the adaption, to wit, the redemption of our body..." Then he added: "For we are saved by hope"
(Romans 8:23, 24)
