TEXT: JOHN 3:1-17
Salvation is the first foundational truths of the gospel we will be studying. The incarnation, sacrificial death of Jesus and His resurrection abolished death thus bringing us life and immortality through the gospel. Man is therefore delivered from sin and its consequences.
We are saved from the penalty of sin, power of sin and sin’s presence. Deliverance from sin’s penalty is immediately secured by Christ’s death. The resultant life of Christ in us saves us from living under the power of sin while the hope of His coming assures us of eternal salvation.
May the Holy Spirit continually reassures us of our freedom from the hand of the enemy in Christ Jesus.
