Salvation

Yesterday at CrossWay we talked about salvation.  It brought the miniseries about people full circle, from creation to sin to salvation.

The summary statement in the Mennonite Confession of Faith sums it up well: “We believe that, through Jesus Christ, God offers salvation from sin and a new way of life. We receive God’s salvation when we repent and accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. In Christ, we are reconciled with God and brought into the reconciling community. We place our faith in God that, by the same power that raised Christ from the dead, we may be saved from sin to follow Christ and to know the fullness of salvation.”

For an example of this, we looked at the story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10.  If you’re interested in hearing more, the podcast should be available soon.
