Salvation from Sin

Christ came to save his people 'from' their sins'- not 'in' them.  And it is essential to salvation that sin should be repented of, and, being repented of, should be renounced, and that, by the help of God, we should lead a new life, under a new Master, serving from a new motive, because the grace of God has renewed our spirit.

[C. H. Spurgeon]

Matthew 1:21 ...  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

James 5;20 ... Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Luke 19:10 ... For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Mark 1:15 ... And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
