What does it mean to be saved and saved from what?

Jesus saves us from sin, death, the devil, and the tribulation to come. (Matthew 1:21, Hebrews 2:14-15, 1 Thessalonians 1:10) We are saved by the washing and rebirth of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 8:8-11, Titus 3:5) This Spirit gives life. (Romans 8:11)

Romans 8:
But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
