Saved From

Passage: Eph. 2:5-9

Saved From


Text: Eph.2: 5-9


I was fifteen years old when I was saved.  It was on a Sunday Morning.  I remember what the preacher preached on.  God recorded the day and the time.  I remember what I wore, where I was sitting, and the decision I made that day.  I “got” saved.  I went home after service dreaming of going to heaven.  Little did I understand then how much that entailed or how my life would change.  “To be saved!”  I knew I had been saved from Hell, but I did not understand all the other things that salvation delivered me from. 

I am going to speak to you today on the subject of “Saved from”.  It is my desire that your joy level will increase when you understand what all salvation brings to you.
