Salvation is My Wall

Today as you go for outdoor or door-to-door evangelism, you will meet with many people some will be welcoming but not all. From a few experiences, I have been able to ask some of them whether they are saved or not and many will say they are saved but do not go to church and prefer staying at home due to one or two reasons.

From such encounters, I have noticed many people referring to themselves as saved but in reality, their understanding of salvation is something else you would not want to sit down and listen to, some have funny weird stories which do not add up but summarizes them as acts of Salvation which may not be wrong but correct according to their own understanding.

Our understanding of salvation is the most fundamental aspect with respect to Christianity it casts direct and dramatic implications upon every aspect of our Christian lives. Since it is foundational, everything else will be aligned according to how it is placed, positioned, and understood.

Therefore, if our understanding of salvation is false or skewed or based on some weird stories, then the entirety of our faith will be disastrously based on a shaky foundation one that might fall or give way under any circumstance. But if our understanding of salvation is rightly established, then it will be a firm foundation whereby the rest of our Christianity can be built, accurately aligned, and increasingly reinforced.

What is Salvation? Is it a Place, a destination, a state of mind, or what? What does the Bible say about being saved? Salvation simply means to be saved or delivered, from the result of sin- eternal death. Salvation is possible through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Scripture emphasizes that Jesus is the cornerstone of our salvation and that salvation is found in no one else but in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:11-12, Eph. 2:20), the One of first importance (1 Cor. 15:3) by whom everything else is held together (Col 1:17). Thus, if we get Jesus wrong, we will without fail get salvation wrong.

Indeed, just as an Architect can’t afford to misjudge the foundation of the structure, how much more can we not afford to do so with Jesus and our salvation, which is eternally significant? It is when we get it right that we are able to work on our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12)
