God's Great Plan of Salvation Sunday, May 26, 2019
Romans 1:16-17 - What is salvation? Christians may use this word out of context and Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones discusses what the Bible means by the terms “being saved” and “salvation.” Romans 1:16-17 explodes with meaning as we must know what happened as a result of the fall of man. Lloyd-Jones conveys that we have a three-fold deliverance from sin through the power of salvation: deliverance from the guilt of sin, the power of sin, and the pollution of sin. The Doctor goes on to explain that the word salvation also has an implication of time; we have been saved, we are being saved, and we will be saved. Paul glories in this because it emphasizes his point that he is not ashamed to preach this message of reconciliation and deliverance. This gospel applies to both the Jews and the Gentiles, those who followed the law and those who did not, and it shows us that we all have hope in Christ by grace through faith. We were previously under the wrath and destruction of God, but salvation restores us again in the hope of glory.
