The Message of salvation
We are all on trial. Everyone must stand before God’s judgment throne — the religious and the irreligious, believers and atheists. The standard for justice is God’s perfect law. And it is by that standard that everyone deserves condemnation. It is through the message of salvation, that act of God’s adopting grace, that we are turned from rebels into princes and the lawless into saints. Through faith in Jesus Christ, we become God’s own sons and daughters. That is the message of salvation — we are saved by God’s grace to live for God’s glory.
