What Does it Mean to be Saved?

What does it mean to be saved? What happens to you?

Prov. 14:12 “There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

We cannot save ourselves. You can spend your life doing what you think is right; while it might save you from jail it won't save your soul.

Galatians 5:17: For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that ye would.

Sometimes when people do bad things to us, we want to fight back. We want to get revenge. Jesus said to do good to those who do bad things to us and falsely accuse us. It’s hard to do this, but Jesus will give you the strength and courage to do the right thing. (Philippians 4:13)

2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
