Salvation: What Are We Saved From?


Christians talk a lot about salvation.

We talk about “being saved.” We talk about those of us who are “saved.” We talk about how we are saved. We talk about who saves us. We talk about what saves us. We talk even more about what doesn’t save us.

But I almost never hear Christians talk about what it is we are saved from. It seems to me that this should be our very first point of discussion.

“Being saved” doesn’t make any sense at all without first knowing what the danger is that we have been delivered from.

We can talk all we want about being saved by Jesus Christ, by grace, through faith, and that not of works, but none of that really tells us much of anything on its own.

Go ahead and post your initial thoughts about what it is we are saved from. Then pull out your Bible and start searching it for references to salvation.

That’s right, I’m giving you homework. I’m going to be doing a series of posts on this, and I would really like your input.

What do you think we’re saved from?
