Salvation



  


There simple plea for our prayers was this…For peace and salvation to be known on the streets of Karachi.’

Salvation definition: 
1. Deliverance from sin and its consequences. 
2. Preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin or loss.

Synonyms: rescue, saving, deliverance, redemption, escape

Romans 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Secured for all on Calvary
Through the pure blood of Jesus Christ
He died to set the sinner free

Oh, what a blessing to receive
For our sin His offering

His promises none can erase
What He has said will surely be

Salvation; is there anything
Greater than this; eternal life?
Would we exchange His blood-bought gift
To drink the cup of carnal strife?

Salvation; blessed hope for all
Salvation breaks the curse of sin
Man’s doomed and wretched soul to save

Salvation; nothing can annul
The words of Jesus as He died
It is finished; paid in full
Through His blood we are justified
