Ordo Salutis

  1. 1. Ordo Salutis Salvation on the Line
  2. 2. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
  3. 3. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, BE RECONCILED TO GOD. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 God reconciles us in Christ and through Christ, and gives us the ministry of reconciliation for Christ.
  4. 4. Our salvation includes the privilege of calling others to salvation. “Missions exists because worship doesn’t.” John Piper Worship doesn’t exist because men are sinners. Missionaries proclaim the gospel of salvation; the gospel believed transforms sinners into singers and motivates more gospel proclamation.
  5. 5. “To affirm of any human production that it contained many great and instructive truths which it would be impossible to systematize without weakening each separate truth, and frustrating the design of the whole, would be a serious reflection upon the author's wisdom and skill! How much more to affirm this of the Word of God! Systematic theology is to the Bible what science is to nature. To suppose that all the other works of God are orderly and systematic, and the greater the work the more perfect the system; and that the greatest of all His works, in which all His perfections are transcendently displayed, should have no plan or system, is altogether absurd.” Charles Spurgeon
  6. 6. Romans 8:28-30 predestined - called - justified - sanctified - glorified Ephesians 1:11-14 predestined - outwardly called - converted - adopted - preserved - guaranteed inheritance 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 chosen - outwardly called - converted - sanctified - glorified 1 Peter 1:1-5 elected - atoned - regenerated - converted - preserved - guaranteed inheritance
  7. 7. Grace Sovereign Grace Outward Call Election the order of salvation ordo salutis Conversion Outward Call Regeneration Regeneration Election Conversion Justification Justification Adoption Adoption Sanctification Sanctification Perseverance Perseverance Glorification Glorification
  8. 8. Sovereign Grace God saves sinners Election God chooses by grace Atonement God purchases in Christ Outward Call God calls through the gospel Regeneration God makes alive Conversion Man repents and believes Justification God declares man righteous Adoption God takes man as His child Sanctification God purifies; man obeys Perseverance God preserves; man endures Glorification God consummates salvation
  9. 9. Four reasons we need the ordo salutis:
  10. 10. 1. Praise - it raises our affections Ephesians 1:3-14 for the Trinity for eternity 2. Perspective - it clarifies our roles 1 Peter 1:3 on new birth Philippians 2:12-13 on growth 3. Perseverance - it enables our hope Romans 8:28-30, 31-39 4. Proclamation - it incites our ministry 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
  11. 11. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
