Salvation yet to Come!

Posted by undergroundchurch on March 26, 2010


…who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. – 1 Peter 1:5

A man falls overboard into the ocean from a boat. I throw him a life preserver and tell him I am going to save him.

Is he saved?

He is being saved. His salvation will be complete once I drag him back onto the ship.

The life preserver gives him opporunity to overcome the raging waters of death, and as long as he holds to the promise of salvation, he will be saved.

Likewise, the promised work of salvation occured on the Cross. It is finished. The process of being saved is occuring now in the hope that we are going to be saved.

Hope is knowing that our salvation will be completed. Hope knows that Jesus’ promise is sure. Meanwhile, in your journey to completed salvation, you cling to the faith while in the sea of doubt, which presses in all around you.

Hold to your faith! Do not doubt! Your salvation is assured. One day soon, you will stand on the shoreline, and the feeling of deadly waters will be a distant memory as your salvation is fully revealed. Praise the Lord!!!
