How would you define salvation? The most common response from a Christian is that "Christ died for my sins, and that when you believe that, you are saved". But is there more? Romans 4:25 takes salvation a step further. "He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification". Who will God credit righteousness to and how are we ultimately saved? "For us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead" (Romans 4:24). We are not saved by the death of Christ, but by His life. See also Romans 5:10 and Romans 10:9.
