DAY 18: ALL ABOUT SALVATION What does Salvation mean? It’s not a word we use a lot, but it’s a big word that means a lot. Salvation is the word we use when someone asks Jesus to live in their heart, to forgive their sins and give them a life in heaven after they die. The Bible tells us that Salvation means we are rescued, or saved, because when we ask Jesus into our heart, He saves us from our sins and the punishment of our sins. It is a good word to remember, because it’s a word that changes our lives forever for those who love Jesus.
The Bible is God’s word, and it should be treated as such. It is the divine Word from the one who has created the universe and each person in it. This truth should drive people to desire to hear from their creator. In this book Kevin DeYoung acknowledges that the majority of those reading this book are Christians, and his goal for each reader is to see the beauty of scripture and understand how this should impact their lives.

He created these intelligent, gentle, and caring creatures that protect us on a daily basis, and that every single person has their special angle.

Since we are on earth to get back to God we must listen to God and listen to his direction for us on earth. This is the peace we find in ourselves to allow ourselves to live like our heavenly father and strive to be like him more every
Christian thought and life should state things to culture that exhibit Christ’s revolutionary vision for all people Our choice today is between a prophetic religion and a culture religion, but we must be cautious about our emphases within culture. God changes things and we are His messengers. Our involvement is important, but it must be remembered that it is transitory. The hope of the Church rests on God for men; it does not rest on men, not even on religious
The first and greatest commandment along with the second like it can be boiled down to a single word; love. To paraphrase these commands, we are to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind; and to love others as ourselves. Biblical counseling helps us to love both God and others. As counselors, we draw close to God as we study His word and apply His truth. As the gospel is revealed to us, we see the immeasurable love that God has for us as we revisit the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made for each of us.
As Christians we should know that there is always a way for things to turn out good though Christ. “Four: we need to invest in people” (Darnel). People are the reason for the glory to God. God loves people: we are His most prized creation. If we do not invest in people’s lives and tell them about the good news of the Gospel, then our evangelism is weak.
The reminder is that they are incredibly blessed, but spiritually. D. This is to remind us that we are blessed in ways that the world around us will never understand. E. As Christians, we need to understand what the Lord has done for us! F. Notice the words “In Christ” or “In Him” as we study. 2.
If we strive to live like Esther, we can lead marvelous lives. We can practice leadership, and lead more people to Christ. We can be honest, and make the world a better place. Finally, we can be trustworthy, and use it to spread the word of God. We can apply these traits to everything we do, helping us grow closer to God, our families, and our friends.
CHURCH AT PRAYER Almighty and Loving God, Creator of all things, from whom all blessings flow, we praise You for all Your goodness and for the love, which has created and sustained us until this day. We, likewise, thank You for the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who brings us into covenant with You and with one another. Help us to treasurer Your gifts and to show out gratefulness by lives wholly given to Your service. O God, you know us better than we know ourselves. You know what we are able to bear, and you know what would destroy us (1 Corinthians 10:13).
