Salvation, being saved, is the acceptance that you are a sinner in need of Jesus (Acts 4:12) to pay the price for your sins (Hebrews 9:28). Knowing that we would never be able to live the perfect life, God loved us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to do just that (John 3:16). What makes Jesus worthy to pay this price? Jesus sacrificed His life by dying on the cross; He was buried and, three days later, rose again, conquering the inevitable death that we all face, as a recompence for our sin. NO one but Jesus has EVER conquered death, let alone, lived a perfect life with all the same temptations as everyone else!
