7 dimensions to salvation

William Barclay in his commentary on Romans notes seven aspects to Christian salvation.

  1. It was salvation from physical illness (Mt 9:21; Lk 8:36)
  2. It was salvation from danger (Mt 8:25; Mt 14:30)
  3. It was salvation from life’s infection (Acts 2:40)
  4. It was salvation from lostness (Mt 18:11; Lk 19:10)
  5. It was salvation from sin (Mt 1:21)
  6. It was salvation from the wrath of God (Rom 5:9)
  7. It was salvation which is eschatological (Rom 13:11; 1 Cor 5:5; 2 Tim 4:18; 1 Pet 1:5) – it will be complete beyond time in the final triumph of Jesus Christ.

All in all that adds up to good news. Just add faith.
