In A Night in the Sea (which is part of his excellent book Night Scenes of Scripture), beginning with the night-time crossing of the Red Sea in Exodus 14, WTP Wolston discusses "The Salvation of the Lord". In his own very clear and down-to-earth way, he brings out the beauty of Salvation; "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord." As he says, "Salvation is a very large word. It comprehends forgiveness, and deliverance, and peace, and the knowledge that I am justified... Every believer in Christ is entitled to know what is presented here in type, and figure, and he can then sing sweetly, simply, and happily." "He is become my salvation." This is the first time Salvation is mentioned in Scripture, and the author explains how wonderfully it is all coupled with a person, the person of the Saviour. "He who possesses Christ has God's salvation." The song of the redeemed, the protection of the Lord ("If you are under the shelter of the blood, you belong to God, He is your Saviour, and He Himself stands between His people, and the pursuing enemy.") and many other wonderful Gospel truths are illustrated clearly by this gifted expositor.
