Have you ever hiked along a stream to the point where you got to the source? Most streams come from underground wells, trickling downhill until they join other streams or rivers and become bigger. This water is a source of life for many people along its route. Jesus is the source of our salvation. He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him.
“And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation,”
Jesus’ experience on the cross and being resurrected from the grave make Him uniquely qualified to be the source of our salvation. Another term for source could be author or cause. In a nutshell, Jesus is the one we go to for new life and our ticket to eternity. The cross and the empty tomb made Him the perfect source for our salvation.
This perfect gift is waiting for everyone who trusts in Jesus called salvation. It saves us from death, redeems us from our sins, and replaces our old life with a new one. Sadly, many don’t take advantage of this free gift. Sure, they want to get into heaven, but they don’t want to give up their sinful lifestyles and follow Jesus. Jesus said you will never be His disciple unless you deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Him.
The Source of Our Salvation
Go to the source of our salvation. Jesus says that He is standing at the door of your heart and knocking. If you open your heart, He will come in and make a life with you. Stop resisting the work of the Lord in your life. Ask for forgiveness of your sins and let the Holy Spirit do the necessary work in your life to bring about the transformation necessary.
