I was recently faced with the question – what does salvation mean to you? What are you saved from? What are you saved for? And wow, what a great question!
How would you answer it? It’s easy to dive straight in to the big words – justification, sanctification, and purification… Although what do they really mean?
The way I personally think of salvation is about transformation that has the three parts:
1. Saved from: A life of unrealised potential. Sin and shame outwork in a distorted view of our value. Tell your before and after story.
2. Saved by: Christ and his work on the cross. We are created anew in Christ. Through His work on the cross we realise our identity in him.
3. Saved for: our purpose. The God given talents, desires and will to align to serve him and ultimately be fulfilled by living a life of abundance that He has promised us
