Did you know the same Greek word translated saved in reference to the soul, is also used for physical healing:
Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” (Luke 7:50)
Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment. (Mat 9:22)
Another similarity to that is how some people have gotten saved and healed by virtually praying the same way asking for mercy:
Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: “God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.” But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, “God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. (Luke 18:10-14)
He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied. Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” (Luke 18:38-42)
Even if you once prayed to God asking for mercy and forgiveness, the big question now is, ARE YOU FOLLOWING JESUS AT THIS TIME? This is a SALVATION issue.
