God's purpose for salvation

Notes & Transcripts
Charles Spurgeon
Illustration: There are two great truths which from this platform I have proclaimed for many years. The first is that salvation is free to every man who will have it; the second is that God gives salvation to a people whom he has chosen; and these truths are not in conflict with one another in the least degree. by Charles Spurgeon

Salvation is the preservation from destruction, failure, or evil.
Note: Deliverance, Deliverer. Rescue or redemption and the agent of such a rescue. Scripture teaches that God’s ultimate goal in history is to rescue people from the curse of sin, death, Satan, and hell. The OT depicts God as delivering his chosen people from Egyptian slavery, from Babylonian captivity, and from oppression at the hands of various Palestinian tribes. To Christians those deliverances foreshadow the coming of Jesus Christ as supreme deliverer.
• The Greek word for salvation is soteria, which means “deliverance, preservation, salvation.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” ()
— Justification means “declared righteous, vindicated, acquitted.”
— Justification means “declared righteous, vindicated, acquitted.”
— Justification is “just as if” I’d never sinned—a completed action.
“Know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no
“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” ()
— Sanctification means “set apart to God, set apart from sin.”
— Sanctification is not being in bondage to anything—a present process.
— Sanctification means set apart by God to live with a new way of behaving and to become more and more like Christ.
“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable.” ()
“We ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has?” ()

#1 We need to be saved from the penalty of sin. This is a state of “justification.”
— Glorification is the final state of all believers who, with transformed, imperishable bodies, will live in splendor in the presence of God—a future condition.
— Glorification means there will be no more death, crying, pain, thirst, or sin. (Read Revelation chapter 21.)
#2 We need to be saved from the power of sin. This is a state of “sanctification.”
#3 We need to be saved from the presence of sin. This is a state of “glorification.”
— Justification is “just as if” I’d never sinned—a completed action.
Some views regard the transmission  of salvation as virtually a physical process, i.e, the taking of the sacraments.
Others think that salvation is conveyed by moral action, i.e, something created by altering the statue of affairs (social-gospel movement and in liberation theologies: an evil social environment that infects us)
Liberation theologies: emphases is that the basic problem of society is the oppression and exploitation of the powerless classes by the powerful. Salvation consists in deliverance (or liberation) from such oppression.
The evangelical view is that salvation is mediated by faith. Faith appropriates the work accomplished by Christ. We, the recipient is, in a sense, passive in this process.the primary human problem is our separation from God, the Word of God is his means of presenting to us the salvation found in Christ, and faith is our means of accepting that salvation
“Know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no
Christ himself is the builder of his spiritual temple, and he has built it on the mountains of his unchangeable affection, his omnipotent grace, and his infallible truthfulness.
> Each individual believer is being prepared, and polished, and made ready for his place in the temple; but Christ’s own hand performs the preparation-work. As in the building of Solomon’s temple, “there was neither hammer, nor axe, nor any tool of iron, heard in the house,” because all was brought perfectly ready for the exact spot it was to occupy—so is it with the temple which Jesus builds; the making ready is all done on earth. (Daily Devotional, Jun 22)
> "Salvation is not a blessing to be enjoyed upon the dying bed, and to be sung of in a future state above, but a matter to be obtained, received, promised, and enjoyed now. The Christian is perfectly saved in God’s purpose; God has ordained him unto salvation, and that purpose is complete...

A progressive alteration of the individual’s spiritual condition; one actually becomes holier:
