Sermon Passage: Ephesians 2:8-10
Sermon Title: Why Am I Saved?
Sermon By: Pastor Samuel
'Are you saved?' is a question that we are often asked. And we learned that we are saved through faith by the grace of God, and therefore, our salvation is safe no matter what happened as long as we hold on to the faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord.
However, once we have assurance of salvation we need to move on, because God saved us for a reason. God's salvation is not freeing a butterfly from the spider web, but it is more like adopting a child from orphanage. Therefore, our salvation is not finished work but it is a starting point of our new relationship.
In this sense, verse 10 says we are saved to do good works, which results in praising God and preaching the gospel. It is important for us to ask the question whether we are saved or not. But we should not stop there. After having assurance, we should move on to next step, which is living for Christ who died for us (2 Cor. 5:15). And asking why am I saved helps us to move on.
Therefore, let's ask ourselves why we are saved so that not only we can know the purpose of our salvation but also we can live according to his plan.
