Where does Salvation Come From?
The only way for us to be saved from God’s punishment and from our sin is if God rescues us. We cannot save ourselves because we are sinful and unable to come to Him with our own efforts (Rom. 3:10-12). Because God is loving and kind, He has made a way for sinners to be saved (Rom. 5:8). It is important to understand that salvation comes from God alone (Psalm 3:8).
We cannot save ourselves
None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one (Romans 3:10-12)
God has made a way for sinners to be saved
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)
Salvation comes from God
Salvation belongs to the Lord; your blessing be on your people! (Psalm 3:8)
