What it means to be “Saved.”

The word “saved” is an important word in the Bible, used over one hundred times in the New Testament alone.

Unfortunately it is also a misused word that has come to mean, for many Christians, a code or formula for getting to heaven when we die.

Specifically the word means “whole,” or “sound,” or even “healed,” which sounds a lot more like the hear and now rather than the sweet by and by…

Thought of this way, “saved” can mean being saved from what is eating at us today, like cynicism or despair or fear or even low expectations…

This Gift is from God, today. Thought of in this way, we all need saving.
