Psalm 68:20 says, "Our God is a God of salvation, and to God, the Lord, belong deliverances from death." Our God saves. That's what He does. We were onced lost and dying in our own sin, desperate for a Savior. But God being rich in mercy, and because of the great love with which He loved us, made a way for us to be saved by sending His only Son to die as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. God saved us.
The name Jesus, or Yeshua in Hebrew, means "God saves." Perfect, isn't it? God gave His Son the name above all names; it is the name that proves God saves.
Fortunately for us, God didn't just save us in the past and move on to doing other things. The truth is, God is still saving us. We are being saved. This doesn't mean that our salvation is uncertain because we have been sealed to the day of redemption with the Holy Spirit. It means that our salvation is constantly being worked out. God is changing us moment by moment to look more Jesus. We have been justified, we are being sanctified, and one day, we will be glorified. We will have new bodies and forever be with Jesus!
So have faith that God saves! If He has saved you, He will be faithful to finish what he started.
