Saved from God

Chris —  May 2, 2011

R.C. Sproul:

. . . I said, “Do you want to know what you are saved from? In a word, you are saved from God.” They just gasped and to this day when I attend that convention people come up to me and say, “I had never thought of that until I heard your message.” It is God who saves people from God because his wrath is stored up against the day of wrath, and he most certainly will demonstrate, as he has demonstrated his love toward us “in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  (Commentary on Romans, 161, emphasis added).

Sproule references Romans 5:8 in making his point, but John 3:36 also comes to mind:

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him (John 3:36).

One response to Saved from God

  1. I don’t think I have ever heard this before. It is true that only God through Christ could pay the price to satisfy the wrath of God for our sins. It is so good to know that in and through Christ we have eternal life. How grateful I am that I am found in Him. Thank you for posting this good word.
