What it means to be saved by Christ?
This phrase is used often. How come?
To me it means walking a new path with Christ.To follow Christ path that he has laid out for us.It is not easy walking that path because, the enemy will always throw something in your way.But,knowing that Christ is always there.It's what keeps me going.
The Christ died for sin. He took on the sin for mankind. God requires the penalty of death for all who sin. The Christ paid your penalty for you, thus "saving" you from eternal death. What you do & where you go from there is what judgement day is all about. On Judgement Day all those saved will live again spiritually, BUT as to where in the kingdom you reside is according to your works. Your works are following Gods Commandments. Including BUT not limited to, how you treat others.
Being saved by Christ, is the greatest gift of grace that you will ever receive! It means that we are free of the guilt of sin, that we have a Father in heaven who loved us so much that he sent his Son, Jesus to die on the cross, in our place. Romans 5:8 tells us, "But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners".
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door [of your life] and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in. . ." (Revelation 3:20).
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

We all understand that Christians are supposed to study the Bible. Nobody is here saying they are not supposed to do that. But many say we must do exactly what is in the Bible. But that would make a Christian someone who followed the Bible and not Christ. So the only way to make sense of it is to...

If we say that we love and follow Christ, then why is it so challenging to love one another?If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? (1 John 4:20)As Christians, we tell others how...

Should Afro-Americans call themselves Christians because they follow Christ?Or should they call themselves another name as Christ-followers? Especially do to history and the people that first started calling themselves Christians, and what they stood for, (if you know what I mean).

Christians have their view and reasons for it. This doesn't matter as far as salvation. Salvation is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ because He shed blood for our sins and we accepted His sacifice as a gift.1. Wouldn't it be better to be raptured prior to the...

Christians,how can one follow Christ and not reside in nor live in His image?That is like saying one don't have to obey Him,but just believe in Him.Satan is a believer,but not a follower of Christ.Can He be saved by just believing?
