So What is Salvation? Is it just redemption and forgiveness OR more?
“SALVATION IS NOT JUST FORGIVENESS, BUT A NEW ORDER OF LIFE” Dallas Willard
We are the Fallen people and we will continue sinning, constantly fighting and doing what our rebellious flesh wants us to do even though we do not want to do it. No one is perfect no one is righteous “Not Even One” but Jesus, we will have to deal with the consequences of our sins but the Lord calls us to a daily life of confession and repentance and constant worship because we are already forgiven..Should we then keep on sinning?
“God’s grace is not a license to sin, instead, it is a reason to pursue righteousness (and hard pursue His heart) Bad attitude, thoughtless actions, and unkind speech do not fit who we are as children of light, we are new creatures in Christ, bought for a price and set free to live of His grace” Dr. Charles Stanley
Salvation is the beginning of a new order of life based on the foundation of a relationship with our Father not a religion. What Jesus resurrection did is provided us with a new life, a rebirth and more so a new second chance to live in Jesus’s life, even though He died for the full forgiveness of our sins He rose conquering death to bring us this free gift and there is nothing we need to do to earn it for we are already have it by His grace; our past sins are forgiven therefore through our doubtless and constant faith and daily repentance, fighting the good fight and finishing the good race; we can maintain this new order of life from any obstructions.
