She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus [the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua, which means Savior], for He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from failing and missing the true end and scope of life, which is God].
Matthew 1:21 AMPC
We are saved when we are able to find and understand that the true end and scope of life is God! Apart from God, we are and have nothing! The totality of our life is GOD! Nothing else, nothing more!
