for 1 Peter 2:24
thought & prayer
John Stott (1921–2011), in Basic Christianity, said this about salvation . . .
Salvation is a wonderfully comprehensive term. It is a great mistake to suppose that it is merely a synonym for forgiveness. God is as much concerned with our present and future as with our past. His plan is first to reconcile us to himself, and then progressively to liberate us from our self-centeredness and bring us into harmony with our fellow men.
