Salvation presents itself in many forms. Countless lives have been saved from burning buildings, raging waters and various other disastrous events. Rescuers often expose themselves to extreme danger in order to deliver others from harms way.
There is a form of salvation, however, that only God can provide. Since the very first sin was recorded in the Garden of Eden, and continuing to this very day, the consequence of one’s sin always results in spiritual death and separation from the presence of God. (2Thessalonians 1:9) Man has placed himself in a position that he cannot redeem himself from. The penalty for sin is death.
“When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed,saying,’Who then can be saved?’ But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”’ (Mt19:25-26)
