Being freed from a life of bondage brought about by transgressions or "violations" of God's spiritual laws - is what "being saved" is all about. Jesus Christ has saved us from the law of sin and death. We are dead in our sins - no ifs, ands or buts about it.
Ephesians 2:4" But because of His great love for us, God who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved."
Romans 8:2"Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death."
God's love takes our spirit that is dead because of sin and causes it to be alive with love, joy, peace and contentment. It is a mystery that can be better understood by a few from the song, "He Touched Me".
"He touched me and oh the joy that filled my soul.
Something happened and now l know. He touched
me and made me whole."
