#ChurchWORDS - Salvation

We started a new sermon series at Renovate (our Saturday Evening Contemporary Service you can read about here) entitled #ChurchWORDS (which you can read about here) a couple weeks ago. Here is my sermon outline from the first sermon in this series from 8/21.

#ChurchWORDS - Salvation

Webster's dictionary defines salvation as: “preservation from destruction or failure b : deliverance from danger or difficulty”

I want to highlight a few passages of scripture that speak to who can be saved, what we're being saved from, how salvation is possible and what salvation is for.

Who can be saved: Joel 2:32; 1 Timothy 2:3-6

What we need salvation from: Romans 3:23, 5:8-10

How is salvation made possible: 2 Timothy 1:9-10; Acts 4:8-12, 15:10-11; Romans 10:8-13; Titus 3:3-7

What salvation is for: to produce good fruit; to find pasture, freedom (John 10:9); Ephesians 2:1-10;

Isaiah talks about joyfully drawing from the well of salvation (12:3)
Work out your salvation with "fear and trembling" (Philippians 2:12)
Grow up in your salvation (1 Peter 2:2)
