During the months of May-July I preached a series of sermons on the topic of salvation.  This sermon series did not really look at why or who or how to be saved, but rather the mystery of salvation itself.  We attempted to understand salvation from God’s point of view rather than our own and it was very enlightening.  In my study as we made this journey I came across many wonderful verses concerning salvation.  For this post I decided to simply allow the word of God to speak to you as you read these powerful verses concerning your salvation.  Be blessed!

  1. Matthew 19:25–30 (NET) —25The disciples were greatly astonished when they heard this and said, “Then who can be saved?”26Jesus looked at them and replied, “This is impossible for mere humans, but for God all things are possible.” 27Then Peter said to him, “Look, we have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” 28Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth: In the age when all things are renewed, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29And whoever has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30But many who are first will be last, and the last first.[1]
  2. Romans 8:37–39 (NET) —37No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us! 38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.[2]
  3. Romans 14:6–9 (NET) —6The one who observes the day does it for the Lord. The one who eats, eats for the Lord because he gives thanks to God, and the one who abstains from eating abstains for the Lord, and he gives thanks to God. 7For none of us lives for himself and none dies for himself. 8If we live, we live for the Lord; if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9For this reason Christ died and returned to life, so that he may be the Lord of both the dead and the living.[3]
  4. John 10:27–30 (NET) —27My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from my Father’s hand. 30The Father and I are one.”[4]
  5. Hebrews 7:23–28 (NET) —23And the others who became priests were numerous, because death prevented them from continuing in office,24but he holds his priesthood permanently since he lives forever. 25So he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. 26For it is indeed fitting for us to have such a high priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, separate from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. 27He has no need to do every day what those priests do, to offer sacrifices first for their own sins and then for the sins of the people, since he did this in offering himself once for all. 28For the law appoints as high priests men subject to weakness, but the word of solemn affirmation that came after the law appoints a son made perfect forever.[5]
  6. Revelation 22:17 (NET) —17And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say: “Come!” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wants it take the water of life free of charge.[6]
  7. John 5:24–27 (NET) —24“I tell you the solemn truth, the one who hears my message and believes the one who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned, but has crossed over from death to life. 25I tell you the solemn truth, a time is coming—and is now here—when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26For just as the Father has life in himself, thus he has granted the Son to have life in himself, 27and he has granted the Son authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.[7]
  8. Ephesians 2:4–10 (NET) —4But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, 5even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you are saved!—6and he raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7to demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9it is not from works, so that no one can boast.10For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.[8]
  9. 1 Peter 1:3–5 (NET) —3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4that is, into an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for you, 5who by God’s power are protected through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. [9]

10. Matthew 7:21–23 (NET) —21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of heaven—only the one who does   the will of my Father in heaven. 22On that day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons and do many powerful deeds?’ 23Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Go away from me, you lawbreakers!’[10]

11. Psalm 13:5–6 (NET) —5But I trust in your faithfulness. May I rejoice because of your deliverance! 6I will sing praises to the Lord when he vindicates me.[11]

12. Psalm 71:15 (NET) —15I will tell about your justice, and all day long proclaim your salvation, though I cannot fathom its full extent.[12]

13. Titus 2:11–15 (NET) —11For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people.12It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.14He gave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly his, who are eager to do good.15So communicate these things with the sort of exhortation or rebuke that carries full authority. Don’t let anyone look down on you.[13]

14. Revelation 19:1 (NET) —1After these things I heard what sounded like the loud voice of a vast throng in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God…[14]

15. Romans 1:16–17 (NET) —16For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.17For the righteousness of God is revealed in the gospel from faith to faith, just as it is written, “The righteous by faith will live.”[15]

Certainly there are many more verses throughout scripture that talk about the amazing mystery of salvation.  This is but a small sample of the richness of God’s word on this subject.   I hope that you might help me by putting a few of your favorite verses in the comment section of this post.  But more importantly share Christ this week!
