Salvation in Jesus

In Romans 3:24-25, Paul summarises the achievements of Jesus’ death on the cross. There four main points.

  • Declaring those who trust in him to be righteous. This is a gift.
  • Redemption that is in Jesus the anointed (setting us free from the bondage of the spiritual powers of evil).
  • God set forth Jesus as a propitiation (not for himself, but for the spiritual powers of evil who demanded death and blood for sin).
  • In forbearance, God passed over sins previously committed (passed over, not punished).
God did these things to demonstrate his righteousness. He was generous and forgiving.

In contrast, the powers of evil were cruel and unforgiving.
