Seeing Salvation

All flesh will see God’s salvation.

Luke 3:6

Luke, the writer of the third Gospel, has an impressive resume. His credits include theologian, physician (Colossians 4:14), researcher, and historian. His attention to historical detail appears early in the book (Luke 1:3–5; 2:1–2). This pattern continues in Luke 3:1–2 where he briefly notes the secular and religious ruling authorities during the ministry of John the Baptist.

When John the Baptist proclaimed the arrival of Jesus, he announced good news to us, to the world. “Prepare the way of the Lord,” John proclaimed (Luke 3:4). He insisted that when Jesus arrived, God would enact a powerful, comprehensive rescue. The biblical word for this rescue is salvation.

Salvation encompasses both the healing of our sinful hearts and, one day, the healing of all the world’s evils. God’s transforming work is for every story, every human system, and is available to everyone. “All flesh will see God’s salvation,” John said (v 6).

Whatever evil we face, Christ’s cross and resurrection assure us we will one day see God’s salvation. One day we will experience His final liberation.


Luke 3:1–6.


Great Father God, You promise that all people will see Your salvation. I claim this promise, and ask that You will help me to point others to the Saviour. In Christ's name. Amen.
