Salvation doesn't need to be confusing or mysterious. Depending on your background or religious tradition, you may have heard a variety of ideas about salvation.
Salvation, which means the same thing as being "born again" or making a "decision to become a Christian" is ultimately being saved from yourself, saved from sin (sin = things we do that don't please God because they ultimately hurt us), and given the gift of eternal life, which means as Christians, we don't fear the death of our natural body because it's simply a transition. Until you've been saved by Jesus, you’re the walking dead. Trapped in sin & separated from God. Salvation is God’s successful rescue operation for the world.
Jesus, who is God in the flesh, came to earth, died on a cross, and was raised to life to rescue us and bring you into relationship with Him. Salvation is not only a matter of life after death, but the way to live an abundant life on earth here and now.
Simply put, Jesus is salvation & when you become a Christian, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, is now in you!
