Salvation, 19of34


~ 3 Great Realities ~

 

 

 

Salvation is not a Reward for the Righteous.

 

It is an available Gift for those who understand their Guilt!

 

Sin Has Ruined All  ~  “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way” (Isaiah 53:6a).

 

A righteous God does not even see the “good” done by sinners.  He is emphatic in His three time statement: 

 

“The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.  The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Psalm 14:1-3).

“The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.  Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.  God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.  Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Psalm 53:1-3).

 

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Romans 3:10-12). 

 

 

 

Christ Has Ransomed All  ~  “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying—a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth” (1 Timothy 2:5-7).  

 

The death of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary conditionally paid for all the sins of all mankind.  The free gift of salvation offered to all sinners must be individually accepted by each sinner—otherwise it is an unopened and ineffective gift.

 

Faith Saves All  ~  “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption; but He [Jesus Christ] whom God raised up saw no corruption.  Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses” (Acts 13:36-40).

As stated previously:  The death of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary conditionally paid for all the sins of all mankind.  The free gift of salvation offered to all sinners must be individually accepted by each sinner (“everyone who believes” in this passage)—otherwise it is an unopened and ineffective gift.
