Friday: Further Study: Salvation — 4 Comments

  1. Here is how Jesus explained his death on the cross:

    New International Version
    "And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself."

    Sin draws a wedge between God and us; the sight of Jesus dying on the cross draws us towards him. That is the mission of the cross. The best explanation for Jesus death is found in the book Education 263:

    “Few give thought to the suffering that sin has caused our Creator. All heaven suffered in Christ’s agony; but that suffering did not begin or end with His manifestation in humanity. The cross is a revelation to our dull senses of the pain that, from its very inception, sin has brought to the heart of God.” [Education page 263]

    There is no legal picture here, but rather a demonstration of God's love for those he created.

  2. God made every effort from the beginning to save us, but we have open our hearts to received him. Salvation is a gift , God freely give it to us, but if we do not accept it, it is on us not God,s fault.
    Jesus said we should seek salvation and is righteous . If we diligently seek the Lord through Prayer and his holy words then we will received that gift that is already there for us..

  3. Oh, What matchless love of our Savior! Who can comprehend it? It is beyong all understanding!

    Throughout this week I have meditaded upon the words of this song (I'd shared stanza 3 earlier) by Frederick M. Lehman and I have been blessed. May you be blessed and touched, too.

    The love of God is greater far,
    Than toungue or pen can ever tell;
    It goes beyong the highest star,
    And reaches to the lowest hell;
    The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
    God gave His Son to win;
    His erring child He reconciled,
    And pardoned from his sin.

    Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
    How measreless and strong!
    It shall forevermore endure -
    The saints' and angels' song.

  4. I think the Love of God and the nature of sin was fully revealed at the cross. I don't think this sacrifice changed God toward us, but it is possible that we might be changed toward God seeing Him for who He really is. We also see ourselves and Satan in a proper light.
