Salvation is only possible through Jesus Christ the Messiah. Christians believe that Jesus' death on the cross was the once and for all sacrifice that atoned for the sin of humanity.
In Judaism, Salvation is closely related to the idea of redemption, saving from circumstances that destroy the value of human existence. God, as the universal spirit and Creator of the World, is the source of all Salvation for humanity. So redemption or Salvation depends on the individual. Judaism stresses that Salvation cannot be obtained through anyone else or by just invoking a deity or believing in any outside power or influence.
Christian’s believe that the life, death and resurrection of Jesus is of a divine plan for humanity's Salvation. This plan was conceived by God before the creation of the world, achieved at the cross, and it would be completed at the Last Judgment when the Second coming of Jesus would mark the catastrophic end of the world.
The Jewish concept of Messiah visualizes the return of the prophet Elijah as the harbinger of one who will redeem the world from war and suffering. The Messiah is not considered as a future divine or supernatural being but as a dominating human influence in an age of universal peace, characterized by the spiritual regeneration of humanity. In Judaism, Salvation is open to all people and not limited to those of the Jewish faith; the only important consideration being that the people must observe and practice of the Ten Commandments. When Jews refer to themselves as the chosen people of God, they do not imply they have been chosen for special favors and privileges but rather they have taken it upon themselves to show to all peoples by precept and example the ethical way of life.
According to Christian belief, sin is considered to be universal. In Romans 1:18 thru 3:20, Paul declared everyone to be under sin both Jew and Gentile alike. Salvation is made possible by the life, death, and the resurrection of Jesus
The first Scripture on the Romans Road to Salvation is , "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-thru 18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives.
The second Scripture on the Romans Road to Salvation is , "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death.
The third Scripture on the Romans Road to Salvation is , "But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Yes, Jesus Christ died for us. Jesus death paid for the price of our sins.
The fourth Scripture on the Romans Road to Salvation is , "That if you shall confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with your mouth confession is made unto Salvation.
Because of Jesus' death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins and we will be saved Romans 10:13, says it again, "for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death.
Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Romans 5:1, has this wonderful message, "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God. Romans 8:1, teaches us, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins.
Finally, we have this promise of God from Romans 8:38 thru 39,"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
