Also, why is salvation important?
Role of Jesus in salvation By having faith in Jesus, Christians believe they receive God's grace . This means they believe God has blessed them, which in turn gives them the strength to live a good Christian life. Ultimately, salvation from sin was the purpose of Jesus' life, death and resurrection.
Likewise, what is the difference between being saved and salvation? Being saved is not the same thing as salvation. Saved refers to being rescued from the power of sin and Satan, while salvation refers to inheriting eternal life. Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Hereof, how do we receive Jesus?
Accept Jesus Christ into your heart. Know that He died on the cross for your sins, and that He then rose from the grave. Pray and read the Bible. Pray for forgiveness when you sin.
What is salvation by works?
Good works is "a necessary consequence of a faith-filled heart," but it is only part of the requirement of salvation. One cannot skip from justification of a faith-filled heart directly to the final step of being saved without performing good works and deeds of righteousness.
