2 Timothy 1:9: “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN”
The Greek word saved is sozo — it means to live saved; to live protected; to live in divine health; to do well; to be whole;
It’s not something we get — saved is who we are
We are to live saved… to live whole…. to live life from our divinity!
v. 10 says: But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel
Jesus brought the truth of our life and immortality to light through the Gospel…. He enlightened it, He shed light on what had always been true about us – our salvation before the foundation of the world
He shed light on the truth that we were in God’s plans safe, protected, healed, well, whole — SAVED — before God said let there be light!!
