OUR SALVATION

“Jesus was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)

Christian faith is not only an assent to the whole gospel of Christ, but also a full reliance on the blood of Christ; a trust in the merits of His life, death, and resurrection; a recumbency upon Him as our atonement and our life, as given for us, and living in us; and, in consequence hereof, a closing with Him, and cleaving to Him, as our “wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption,” or, in one word, our salvation.

-- John Wesley, from his sermon entitled “Salvation by Faith”
