What Is The Basis Of Salvation According to The Bible?

Does the Bible have a clear teaching about the way to get to heaven and be saved from our sin and judgment?

"For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ."    1 Corinthians 3:11.

You will not succeed to build heavenly salvation on the foundation of worldly man made things such as education, charity, service, sacrifice, family upbringing or other virtues you can think of. If you have any sin in your life the building of your own salvation would be compromised and not strong enough for the Day of Judgment.

A foundation is the most important part of a structure, system, or organization. The Bible speaks figuratively using the term foundation as what salvation is all about- the core truth of salvation. This foundation is the essential truth of salvation.

This foundation has been laid by God's hands. He is perfect so his foundation would be perfect. He is all powerful so it would be able. He is all knowing so his foundation would be faultless.

"...None other than the one already laid," God has already laid the foundation this is in the past tense, it has been done we do not need to do it over. You cannot do better than God did.

Jesus is the foundation that The Almighty provides for our salvation. The Father sent his son as God-man and mediator to be the perfect substitute, and his sacrifice by death on the cross paid for all of our sins. The resurrection removes all doubt that the death of Jesus is anything but the perfect satisfaction for the judgment of our sins.

God doesn't force salvation on you- he offers it to you as a free gift. If you reject the foundation God provided for you it is an insult to him. If you try to do better than His foundation you will be more than disappointed.

Let Jesus become your foundation today for this life and for eternity. To learn more about how to get saved click on the tab above for the gospel.
