What Happens When We Live Out Our Salvation in Christ?

Question: What Happens When We Live Out Our Salvation in Christ?

Answer: God continues to work in us to make us holy and blameless.

But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation. (Colossians 1:22)

Okay, so there are a few big, fancy words that we use when we talk about salvation.

They are:

  • Justification
  • Regeneration
  • Sanctification

We’ve just been talking in the previous lesson about justification and regeneration (though we didn’t use those terms).

Justification is being set right again with God. Making peace with God. It’s being forgiven for our rebellion.

Regeneration is the new life that comes from believing in God. It’s being welcomed into God’s household again where there’s food and shelter. And being given the ability to live as faithful servants.

Sanctification is the process of God helping us to work out the last shreds of rebellion from our hearts and minds.

Everything important is worth saying twice, so I’ll say this again and put things even
more simply:
