BOTTOM LINE:
SALVATION/SAVED

To be rescued from serious and immediate danger.

Romans 5:8-9 NIV
8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

1. WHAT AM I SAVED FROM?

The consequence of my sin - eternal separation from God.

Romans 5:8-9 NIV

8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

2. WHO SAVES ME?
The only one able to save - Jesus.

3. WHAT AM I SAVED TO?
Freedom from the conseqence of my sin - eternal relationship with God.

John 8:34-36 NIV
34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Start Talking
What is a word or words that you thought you knew the meaning of that (turns out) meant something different than you thought?

When you think of the word Salvation (or Saved), what definition has come to mind?

Start Thinking
Read Romans 5:8-9 (NIV) and, thinking about the points from today’s message, answer the three basic questions from today:

  1. What am I saved from?
  2. Who saves me?
  3. What am I saved to?

Start Sharing
Why is it important to understand what we are saved from? How have YOU experienced the reality of being saved from it in your own life and what does that mean to you?

Why is it important that we understand WHO saves us? How have we/you gotten that confused in the past?

Start Doing
In light of what we are saved TO… how will/does this change the way you will live on mission where you live, work & play?

How will you tell your story of what you were saved from, who did the saving, and what you are saved to?

Start Praying
Pray for each other to embrace the three big questions of salvation that we’ve discussed tonight and that each person would have the opportunity to share their story this week!
