Have Been Saved, Am Being Saved, Will Be Saved

16 Nov

It is a beautiful thing that all three of these phrases are used in the Bible when speaking of our salvation. We use big theological terms like justification, sanctification and glorification. We think about being saved from sin’s penalty, freed from sin’s power and one day from the presence of sin. We speak of salvation past, present and future. These are truths that are worth our attention and truths which can fire our hearts with love for God and a desire to share this great salvation. We have a great message to share. It is not a truncated message of “pray this prayer and avoid hell.” It is a whole-life message that is focused on Jesus, His death and resurrection.

Derek Thomas has written an article which effectively explains the riches of salvation. I commend it to you and hope that this weekend we will reflect on God’s grace to us in Jesus yesterday, today and forever.
