Christians speak of "being saved," but all too oftendon't follow the phrase to its logical reply: "Savedfrom what?" How do we answer this question when we share thegospel with others? Far from being a matter of semantics, the issueholds critical importance for believers and non-believers alike. Isit really sufficientto say that we are saved from oursins?
R. C. Sproul uses Scripture to show that the question, in itsmost important sense, should be phrased, "Saved fromwhom?" The answer: God himself. God, in righteous wrath,stands against us in our sin. But the glory of the gospel is thatthe one from whom we need to be saved is the very one who saves us.It is when we truly grasp the significance of Christ'sredeeming work that we begin to understand the serious demands andjoys of repentance.
