What Do You Mean, Saved?

Titus 3:4–7  (ID: 1612)

How would we answer if someone asked us what it means to be saved? A clear understanding of God’s work in salvation will not only strengthen our own faith but will also better equip us to evangelize. Turning to Titus 3, Alistair Begg explains that salvation involves a person, principle, process, prospect, and plan. Jesus saves us in His mercy because we cannot save ourselves. God’s work in salvation is immeasurable, as are the promises He offers to those He saves.

4But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
