A word about salvation

Salvation is not in a plan, salvation is not in scripture verses, and salvation is not in ordinances and all the scheme of theology, salvation is not in decision, salvation is not in a pronouncement of an evangelist, or a pastor, or a teacher. Salvation is a person.

This is the guard in all truth and all faith. Salvation isn't from a person only, it is, but salvation is a person. David saw this in Psalm 27:1"The Lord is my light and my salvation;" again we have it: 1John 5:12 "He that hath the son, hath life, life is in the son, he that hath not the son shall see life but the wrath of God abideth upon him." You understand therefore, that salvation is Christ. He is our light, He is our salvation. He didn't die to send it, He died to become it and He isn't just some Savior because He's in heaven,He has to be in you.

Col 1:27 God wanted to make known to those among the Gentiles the glorious wealth of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Col 1:28 We proclaim Him, warning and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ.

As Paul says it is Christ in us and that we proclaim Him. Everything and anything is Christ and all should, can and will be counted as nothing for the glorious riches of knowing Him. Why not make that day today?

Php 3:8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,
