Salvation is intended to be simple, so that anyone might understand it and enjoy the incredible benefits that come with it. As we’ll see in today’s episode, when the Philippian jailer asked Paul what he must do to be saved, Paul simply stated, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.” It doesn’t get any simpler than that. But we would be wrong to think that the Gospel message is simplistic or uncomplicated. Because, while salvation only required belief on the jailer’s part, there was far more involved behind the scenes to make his belief possible and effectual. Salvation is a miracle of God. And without His plan for it and His Son’s obedient role in it, the Philippians jailer would have had no hope of salvation.
