What does the Bible say about salvation?

What does the Bible say about salvationThe faithfulness of God which comes through the remission of sin through His son Jesus Christ as defined in the book of 1 John 1:9 results in salvation.

According to Matthew 26:28, without the blood shed by Jesus Christ, there is no remission of sin.

The absence of the blood of Jesus Christ would directly translate to an absolute absence of salvation.

What does the Bible say about salvation

  • Salvation is the free gift that God gives to mankind by which people can be made pure enough to be acceptable in His sight.
  • Salvation comes from the word ‘saved’.
  • Salvation does not cost any money or wealth yet it requires some maintenance to remain valid.

Later on in the article, the validity of salvation will further be discussed.

The only cost of salvation can be defined as all humanly and spiritually possible means of keeping away from sin. There is no moment at which a believer ought not to be holy because maintaining a holy life keeps ones salvation valid (Hebrews 12:14).

Such work demand for continuous cleansing in the blood of Jesus and working with all effort, even though it will never be enough, to remain holy and righteous before God.

In Philippians 2:12 Paul writes:

Bible say about salvation

Naturally, no person can work hard enough to gain favor of any sort in the sight of God (Romans 3:10; 3:23). This makes it clear that whatever gifts of any sort that we receive from God are not a result of our effort in pleasing Him but are purely His favor and grace (James 1:17).

In a sinful world such as the one we live in today, it still is important to maintain one’s salvation and this leads me next section.

Why is salvation necessary?

Neglecting salvation is detrimental (Hebrews 2:3) to the person that does it because such a person will no ways escape the wrath of God that is set for all children of disobedience (Colossians 3:6).

According to Revelation 21:27,

Maintaining or working out one’s salvation goes together with shunning sin.

In reality, it is possible for anyone to lose his or her salvation even when such a person had it. The validity of salvation gets tested when a person dies.

The one with valid salvation, one who has worked out his or her salvation in diligence, goes to Heaven while the none-saved goes to Hell (Jude 1:23). God shows no favor to anyone but faithfully judges fairly according to what one has done while living in the body (1 Peter 2:23).


What is salvation? Salvation is an incomparably precious and invaluable free gift given to man by God the creator. The fact is, no salvation means no Heaven when that particular person dies.

This reality applies to all mankind with no exception of position, religion, ethnicity or any form of attributes that can be attached to a person.

Salvation is a personal matter that the living should hasten to decide on while in living in this world.
