Feedback from last night’s radio broadcast

28 Jan
So we spent an hour last night presenting the answer from the Bible to the question is our salvation a process or a once and for all action. What do you think is the final word on the matter? Are we working toward our salvation, or are we saved at a point in time as an act of God based upon our response to the gospel?

    As I read this it seems you are asking my response to the salvation question.
    I firmly believe that the Bible teaches, and by my personal experience that salvation is a one time action that is good for a lifetime. I can give personal testimony to that. I remember!

      That’s good Joe. The truth is, that there are three aspects to our salvation. The first is our justification. This is the aspect of our salvation that deals with being delivered from the penalty of our sin. This is the primary emphasis of our evangelism, and is a once and for all legal declaration by God the moment a penitent sinner places his faith in Christ alone. The second aspect of our salvation is our sanctification. This is the lifelong process that God brings us through as we grow into Christ likeness. This is not in any way the basis of our justification, but this is the practical result of our justification. This aspect of our salvation is dealing with our salvation from the power of sin in our lives. The final aspect of our salvation is yet in the future, and it will happen the moment that we receive our sinless eternal body. This salvation is also a once and for all deliverance from the presence of sin in God’s presence for all eternity. That will be a glorious day!
