Five Theological Words Your Students Should Know Before They Graduate

Five Theological Words Your Students Should Know Before They Graduate


Why this word: When you say you are saved, you have to ask yourself, “What am I saved from?” Common answers from students will be anything from sin or ourselves to Satan or Hell. Though they aren’t wrong, God has rescued us from the Devil and our own sinfulness, the ultimate thing we are saved from is God himself. God is holy and must punish sin. Romans 1:18 tell us that, “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men.” John 3:36 tells us that those who put not trust in Christ for their salvation  that “ the wrath of God remains on him.” Propitiation informs us that when Christ was on the cross he was taking the full cup of God’s wrath. This is why verses like Romans 5:9 is so encouraging: “Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.”

This is a great list that ALL believers should be aware of.  Researching these words would be a great addition to your D-Group this week.
