The Salvation of Man
a. Man's Only Hope of Redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind, (Psalm 103:3) being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by grace, we are saved through faith.
Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10
b. The Evidences of Salvation. The inward evidence, to the believer of his salvation, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. “And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.” I John 3:23
c. Faith and Works. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ, through His grace, and not by human works; however, our works will determine the rewards in eternity. Romans 10:9-11; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; Romans 14:20-21; II Corinthians 5:10
