Passage(s): Luke 19:1-10

Salvation/Saved - While in popular Christian language “being saved” has often referred to “accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior,” Biblical language of “salvation” and “saving” also refers to being kept safe, rescue, healing, restoration, deliverance, being set free, and more. It is both personal and communal. Spiritual salvation, rooted in the generous grace of God, contains paradox and partnership. It is a present reality and a future promise.
