The word “salvation” implies “deliverance, safety, preservation, healing and wholeness”. The good news is not to save you from an eternity in “hell” but to make you whole while you are here and in Him. Jesus promised us not only eternal life but abundant life (John 10:10). There is an expectation for us to reign in this life, now! (Romans 5:17)
It’s time to drop guilt and condemnation out of our dealings with men. It’s time to realize that we are ambassadors of the ministry of reconciliation. Our job is to present to people a Father God who was in Christ reconciling the world to them without holding a grudge against them. Let’s give them an invitation to the goodness of God revealed in Christ.
