Jesus saves , We should backup.

I came across the quote " Jesus saves , the rest should backup" during my early days at university.At first It just was some funny quote I had ever come across but recently I got some wisdom out of it.

From the computing perspective saving something is keeping a copy of some piece of data or anything that is and will be of value to you even in the future and to backup is to make sure you safe guard what you saved so you never loose it.

In the same way as a Christian,Jesus reconciled us to God and gave us salvation. We got this salvation at a big price of his blood at the cross.By the way it was not any of our idea the bible says before we loved him he loved us. He thought of this salvation for us before we even chose to accept him as Lord of our lives.

Now since we have come and accepted the salvation that Christ gave us we aught to guard it (backup it up) so we may not loose it until Christ comes for us . As Paul writes and says

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, Philippians 2:12

 In my view ,whosoever works out their salvation with fear and trembling values the salvation that he or she attained through Christ. Do you value your salvation?

Christ has done his once and for all sacrifice for our salvation its now our turn to respond with respect and value to what he did for us at Calvary by guarding the salvation that he gave us.

11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.[aRomans 13:11-14
