Jesus, Whose name means "Yahweh saves," said to the Samaritan leper who had been healed: "Your faith has been your salvation" (Lk 17:19). Today and on Christmas Day, the Church proclaims at Mass: "When the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us" (Ti 3:4-5). Jesus Christ our Savior "saved us; not because of any righteous deeds we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the baptism of new birth and renewal by the Holy Spirit" (Ti 3:5).
We were saved from being "foolish, disobedient, and far from true faith; we were the slaves of our passions and of pleasures of various kinds. We went our way in malice and envy, hateful ourselves and hating one another" (Ti 3:3). We were saved for becoming "heirs, in hope, of eternal life" (Ti 3:7).
"Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, and all your household" (Acts 16:31). "If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Rm 10:9). "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved" (Rm 10:13). Those who believe in the gospel and accept "baptism will be saved" (Mk 16:16). "How shall we escape if we ignore a salvation as great as ours?" (Heb 2:3) Accept Jesus now as your Savior, Lord, and God.
