Dr. R.C. Sproul's book seeks to answer the question of what it means to be saved. The basic premise is that we do need to be saved but we specifically need to be saved from God Himself. We often think we need to be saved from our sins and this is true but why must we be saved from our sins? It is because sin violates the Law of God (1 John 3:4). Sin is clear rebellion against a holy God who calls us to obey Him. When we sin, we are telling God that we despise His laws and His rule and we reject Him as God and Lord. This brings the wrath of God (Romans 1:18-32). We deserve the wrath of God because of our sins. But Jesus came to save us from our sins and from the wrath of God. Jesus bore the full blunt of God's wrath (Romans 5:8-9). Jesus died in our place and He was condemned for our transgressions against God (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). In other words, writes Sproul, God gives Himself to save us from Himself (John 1:12-13). Jesus satisfies the wrath of God (Romans 3:22-27).
This is what it means to be saved, to be saved from the wrath of God. Not just saved from sin but saved from the just wrath of God against sin. So again, are you saved? Do you understand the gospel and can you explain just what it means to be saved? This book will help you do just that. It is an excellent read.
