Salvation-Freedom from that which binds or restricts, deliverance from oppression, rescued from sin and its results, healing from sickness and disease, and bringing men from a state of sin into a state of glory thru Jesus Christ.
Salvation comes from the Latin, salvatio
, which was translated from the Greek, soteria
, and also the Hebrew, yasha
Salvation is God's ultimate objective, saving mankind from sin and its results.
Jesus said in Luke 19:10, "For the Son of Man is come to seek and save that which was lost."
Read further Ephesians 2:8 and 9, Isaiah 45:22, and Acts 4:12

Romans 10:9-13: "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame". For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For "Whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved".
Scripture taken from The Maxwell Leadership Bible, New King James Version, with teachings by John Maxwell.

Psalm 127: "Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guard the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for He gives His beloved sleep. Behold, children are a heritage of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with the enemies in the gate."

Psalms 50:16, 17: "But to the wicked God says: What right have you to declare my statutes, or take My covenant in your mouth, seeing you hate instruction and cast My words behind you?"
In other words, why are you quoting the Bible to someone else, and not living for God yourself? Hypocrites will get some of the worst punishments in hell because they know the Word of God but do not put it into practice. See also Matthew 3:7-12.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.
It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down the beard,the beard of Aaron, running down the edge of his garments.
It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for the Lord commanded the blessing-life forevermore.
This is a Scripture on leadership that I learned in a former church. Whatever is on the leader, gets on to the people.

1 John 3:16-18
"Words are one thing, actions are another"
I saw this expression in one of my college workbooks more than several years ago, and now again recently. There is a lot of truth in this, especially when it comes to living for God. Don't just say "I love you", but show it in your actions. If your friend or relative is sick, then bring them some hot chicken soup. If you say you'll be there, then be there. If you love your family, then be on the job making that paycheck, and pay your bills so they can have electricity, heat, be able to cook food, do laundry, and spending time with them. Some years ago, Janet Jackson had a song titled, "What have you done for me lately". I wonder if this is how God feels about people who just say they believe in Him. The prophet Isaiah said, "These people worship me with their lips, but their heart is far from me". Hypocrisy is one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen in my life! Your love for God is proven when you help your brother in need. James 2:15, 16 says, "If a brother or sister is without clothes and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well, but you don't give them what the body needs, what good is it?". How can your faith be in God, but you don't help someone else out?

Scripture: Luke 5:36-39
A new life in Christ requires also a new way of thinking. Just because things were done the same way repeatedly over the last 20 or 30 years, doesn't mean God finds it acceptable. Changing the heart is one thing, but to change from a traditional way of thinking into a spiritual perspective, can be difficult. We must seek God to guide our ways of thinking, so we can approach life with a refreshed mentality. Remember the Word of God spoken by Haggai the prophet, "Consider your ways!". Peace.

Luke, chapter 15
This has been called by some the "lost chapter", because three major items are discussed. A sheep, a coin, and a son. Sheep are very dumb animals, and will follow anyone without thinking. A coin has value, both for its metal and for its economic use. The son in this chapter has the highest value, because he is human. Why is there more said about the son than the coin or sheep? I believe that God wants us to see the priceless value of a human soul. Jesus said in Matthew 18:11, "For the Son of Man is come to save that which was lost". People are more important than stuff.

"Study is a life-long undertaking." Miyamoto Musashi, A Book of Five Rings
Whatever your spiritual path is, it will take a lifetime to master. Pray and seek God for understanding and guidance in all that you do.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." Proverbs 3:5, 6
