There are many interesting and doctrinally/theologically accurate  means to understand/comprehend  Salvation.  As the born again's  eternal position in God's family , whereby we are eternally  joined to God our Father through the Blood of Jesus, can be understood on many levels as an amazing spiritual mosaic regarding redemption..

Salvation....The Atonement....is multi-facited , it has many intricate and  connected dots.....

1.) One way you can "see it", is to realize that God took upon Himself the sacrificial responsibility of our redemption,  by  Himself literally dying on a cross to  bridge and thereby remove the eternal gulf that was between Himself and us that was our "SIN"..

2.) Another was you can view it is to understand that God's literal holiness is SO Holy, that it does not allow anything that is not equal in holiness to exist around Him..... So, He literally solves our unholiness that was the eternal wall between us and Himself,  by  dying for us and thereby GIFTING us with the "Righteousness of God, In Christ".....which is literally God's very own holiness becoming ours when we are born again.  "the gift of righteousness"..

3.) And one more way to contemplate God's unmerited Salvation that He has gifted us  with  if we are born again, is  Ephesians 2..... "God through Christ has raised us up together (Jesus and you) (Jesus is the resurrection and the Eternal Life), and made us 3 sit together.....(God, Christ, and the Born Again), > " IN Christ Jesus".      Jesus The Christ IS God, and We the born again are "in Christ", (In God)  and "Christ (God) in us IS the eternal and literal hope of Heaven, Eternal Life, & Glory".

And how is this understood best?.....  John 17:23.... "Jesus is inside the born Again, and God is inside Jesus,  SO THAT the born again are ALL made perfect,  as are all ONE in God....""""

Another way is seeing the atonement as a rescue..a rescue from the demands of the law, the flesh, the devil and sin's power.

      Do you believe that this verse teaches that redemption means no more sin?  How do you interpret this verse?

      The Church’s Purpose: 
      “God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord; In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.“ (Ephesians 3:10-12)
      Here the purpose of the Church is revealed as displaying Wisdom who is Jesus Christ the Lord God (1 Corinthians 1:18-2:18, Colossians 2:2-3, 1 Corinthians 1:30), and His Gospel (John 6:40, John 3:16-18, John 14:6). That we are ambassadors, “So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, "Come back to God!" (2 Corinthians 5:20). 
      The purpose of the church is to display and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and show Him to the world. At the same time our purpose is to be God’s family and know Jesus (Philippians 3:8-10).

      Sense God’s Peace
       
      To peace as my mind’s chatter becomes numb.
      … From dumb ones’ mindless matters.
      It is all up to He to set my brain free-
      Becoming less flesh; naughty body!
      God’s Spirit breaks free past chains misery,
      Drowning in sorrow, sin pained.
      Let me again pray for you, friend,
      Replacing my rant on the mend.
      In the Lord I place you to soothe stress gone through.
      Now on this new page I will write
      Christ answers for you.
      He’s how I got through
      Healed, restored full; reborn new.
      I thought that you knew [all
      In the mind true]
      Whom
      Calms stormy seas. He
      Makes us all be
      Still, sensed God’s Word peacefully.
       
      ~ Sense God’s Peace ~ 2018 ~ Gregory KJ Brumwell
       
      11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice!  Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace.  And the God of love and peace will be with you. 
       
      ~ 2 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV)

      Daily Reading 38 If you prefer, you can look up the following verses in your own Bible, of by whatever means and in whatever version you choose. Hebrews 3:1-4:13 Genesis 48 Psalm 38 Audio 2:25 Audio 3:43 Audio 2:14 The above addresses are linked to Bible Gateway. That is an easy way to read (or listen to) the Bible verses, and choose your version.  Personally, I prefer written, that way I can go at my own pace, on think about it, before moving on. Nothing wrong with doing either or both. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. See the picture below to get an idea of what to expect if you follow the above links.

      Note: The audio will not play the exact verses, it will play the whole chapters, in which the verses exist.
      Thank you Lord for making the your word so accessible for us in these times. Amen
