The word "salvation" has, unfortunately, been reduced to PERSONAL salvation -- meaning a moment in time when one is "born again." And certainly, that is part of it. But the word in scripture is much larger, much more dynamic. It refers to the deliverance God offers, and it comes in past, present, and future tenses. Biblically speaking, better than saying "I got saved" would be to say "I am being saved/delivered." Weigh these words from Unveiling Glory: "Living like Jesus is not something we do to get salvation--it is our salvation."
