Sabbath: Salvation: The Only Solution
avatar

Read for This Week’s StudyJohn 2:25Jer. 17:9Titus 1:1-2Rom. 3:19-24Acts 2:37Luke 7:47Eph. 2:1-5.

Memory Text: “ ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’ ” (John 3:16, NKJV).

Key Thought: The sin problem is very big; how thankful we should be that the solution was big enough to solve it.

The “sin problem” refers to the crisis caused by the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which brought to the earth the great controversy between good and evil. God’s part in the controversy has been to stop, and ultimately eliminate, the deleterious effects of sin, not just on the earth but on the creation as a whole. God’s action to rescue the creation from the destructive results of sin constitutes the doctrine of salvation. And though that battle, at least in terms of salvation, does play out here on earth, the great controversy motif has shown us that the issues are, literally, universal.

The doctrine of salvation primarily concerns God and His work to save us, of course. But humanity has an important role too. Yes, God has made an incredible provision for the salvation of the human race. Our crucial part comes in the answering of the question, What will be our response to that provision? On that answer, the eternal destiny of souls truly hinges.

Sabbath: Salvation: The Only Solution — 6 Comments

  1. There is nothing more important in life than our surrender to God's way and belief in Him for the salvation of our souls. All who seek to really be born into a world without end and sin must repent and accept God's gracious offer of life through his Son.

  4. The very first one to fall was Satan right there in Heaven. That was the origin of the great controversy between God and satan. Yes we have our part in our own salvation thou God prepared a way for us, that's the choice we make in choosing which side to follow between bad and evil
