“Salvation” is defined by the dictionary as; being saved or protected from harm[2] or being saved or delivered from some dire situation.[3] In religion, salvation is stated as the saving of the soul from sin and its consequences.[4]
“Salvation”[1] refers to the act of God's grace in delivering his people from bondage to sin and condemnation, transferring them to the kingdom of his beloved Son (Col. 1:13), and giving them eternal life (Romans 6:23)—all on the basis of what Christ accomplished in his atoning sacrifice. The Bible says we are saved by grace through faith; and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8).
Now that we have given you the definitions, what could possibly be holding you back? Think about the fact that this is the beginning of a brand new year that was never promised to any of us.
Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior sacrificed his life on Calvary’s cross just to save us as retched undone people that had no possible way of escaping God’s wrath and judgement against sin. What do you plan to do with this “Salvation”?
Last year, thank God, is finally gone and with it all the stress of wrong choices made by us that caused all the issues we encountered during that year. Since we have sought the Lord, for forgiveness of all those iniquities, let’s not run back into the same troubling situations.  Remember also what Hebrews 2:3 says, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;” “Seek the Lord while he might yet be found”!
