Bigger than forgiveness...
Salvation and forgiveness are not convertible or
interchangeable terms. Salvation is bigger than
forgiveness ... forgiveness and holiness and immortality
are all aspects of our salvation.
Salvation is a good word; it denotes that comprehensive
purpose of God by which he justifies, sanctifies, and
glorifies his people: first pardoning their offences and
accepting them as righteous in his sight; then
progressively transforming them by his Spirit into the
image of Christ, until finally they become like Christ in
heaven, when they see him as he is, and their bodies are
raised incorruptible like Christ's body of glory.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
