SALVATION – deliverance from the power and effects of sin; deliverance from danger or difficulty
Many Christian denominations teach that the reward for salvation is eternal life after death and a reprieve from the harsh judgment of God for earthly sins. This is where the concept of heaven comes in. In heaven, Christians believe there is no sin, illness, or suffering. Those souls that are admitted to Heaven are in the constant presence of God and Jesus Christ, which inspires many Christians to strive for salvation and a life of piety.
Scripture: Psalm 62:1
“Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.”
“There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.”
— James Baldwin
