The Beauty of “So What”

April 29, 2011

“You have been saved!” (Eph 2:8) So what?

I asked that question a month ago when we started our series on Ephesians. The answer is not insignificant. Of course, there are the eternal benefits: If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, He has saved you from an eternity of torment separated from God and saved you to an eternity of joy in God’s presence. During the first half of the month we delved into the nature of our salvation. Here’s a few of the highlights in case you missed them:

But the “so what” of our salvation is not limited to God’s one-time saving act on our behalf and the inheritance we will receive when we get to heaven. Our salvation also matters right now in this earthly life. The wonderful truths that God saved us and that the Holy Spirit lives within us impacts every relationship, every decision, and every circumstance of our lives. That is a great big “SO WHAT!”

Here are some of those “so whats” we discussed this month:

Believer, you have been saved! You have been saved to experience an abundant life in Christ for all eternity and for right now!

How does your salvation affect your life today? I would love to hear your “so what” story!
