Many in the religious world know about the “Who” of salvation (i.e., that Jesus is the Savior). Indeed, Acts 4:12 tells us, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” But, what so many today forget is the “where” of salvation. Where has God placed salvation? Paul wrote, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning…” (Rom. 15:4). The Old Testament is not for our law, but for our learning. Note some lessons from the Old Testament about God’s nature regarding the “where” of salvation, as well as the application of such today.
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
(2 Corinthians 4:16-5:1)
