Eternal salvation is God’s amazing gift to mankind through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.  Examine the following Bible verses about salvation that everyone should know.

I had a friend that was trained as a life guard.  It was his job to watch people in the water and jump in to rescue those who got into trouble.  He would tell me stories of people who he saved from drowning.

On the other hand, I received a call some years ago from a church family that was by the water on a hot day.  The mom explained that someone had drowned while they were there.  They were really shaken up.  Sadly, he had no one to save him.

Salvation is the act of saving.  One could be saved from danger, destruction, enemies, calamity, or even death.

In theology, salvation is the redemption of man from sin and the penalty of eternal death in Hell.  Salvation rescues us from Hell and reserves us a place in Heaven.

We can only be saved through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Faith alone, through grace alone, in Christ alone is the only path to eternal salvation.
