  3. 3. The SBC statement on Salvation IV. Salvation Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  4. 4. A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of Gods grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  5. 5. B. Justification is Gods gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer unto a relationship of peace and favor with God. C. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to Gods purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate persons life.Tuesday 12 July 2011

We have 2 natures - one old andsinful, one new and full of divinepotential - consider Gal 5:16-17So I say, walk by the Spirit, and youwill not gratify the desires of the flesh.For the flesh desires what is contraryto the Spirit, and the Spirit what iscontrary to the flesh.

  19. 19. C. Law as a rule of lifeLaw is used in a number of ways in theBible;1. 10 Commandments - Ex 31:182. System of government for Israel -commandments, judgments, ordinances -Exodus3. Governing principles of the futuremessianic kingdom - fulfilling Law andprophets - Matt 5:17-7:294. God’s revealed will for men - Rom 7:22 -For in my inner being I delight in God’s law;Tuesday 12 July 2011
  20. 20. 5. Mens rules for their own govt. - Matt 20:15 6. OT law - a conditional covenant of works - essentially saying the Law (God) is “If you do good, I will bless you” 7. Law as a dependence upon the flesh - whatever is done in the flesh in trying to observe the commandments etc.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  21. 21. D. Grace as a rule of life For a child of grace the Law is now done away with and has results in a Christians life: Jn 1:16 - Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. Rom 6:14 - For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. Eph 2:14-15 - For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. Rom 7:1-6, 2 Cor 3:1-18, Gal 3:19-25Tuesday 12 July 2011
  22. 22. 1. Legal principles of the Mosaic law now actas guiding principles for Christian life - livedout in grace2. We are delivered from a covenant of works- accepted and free to live in Christ3. Not living in the power of your own flesh -living in the power of the Spirit4. Grace means unmerited favour - whichGod instigated in his dealings with Adam -God treats us with mercy not as our actionsdeserve - this is only possible through all thatJesus did and accomplished for us. Israelaccepted the law thinking they could keep itand proved grace to be the only way of beingaccepted before GodTuesday 12 July 2011
  23. 23. 5. Grace is revealed in 3 ways:a. Salvation by graceb. Safekeeping through gracec. Grace as a rule of life for the saveda. Salvation by graceThere is no other way of salvation - Acts4:12 - in saving grace God shows his limitlesslove for the lost whilst meeting his owndemands for justice and righteousnessthrough Christ. In this God deals with everysin and obligation for payment, and allhuman merit - every aspect of human effort isdealt with by God’s grace for those whobelieve - it has to be a sovereign act of Godnot in any way dependent upon man.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  24. 24. b. Grace alone keeps safe those who aresaved - God keeps on pouring grace intothe lives of those who are saved - Rom 5:2,1 Pet 5:12 - With the help of Silas, whom Iregard as a faithful brother, I have written toyou briefly, encouraging you and testifyingthat this is the true grace of God. Stand fastin it.c. Grace as a rule of life for the saved -God teaches a way of life to those savedthrough grace so that they might live for hisglory. Living in grace means not obeying togain God’s favour but as a manifestation ofthe indwelling Spirit based on the principleof faith.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  25. 25. E. The only way of victorySuggestions for a way to live in victoryinclude:1. If we observe sufficient rules we will becompelled to live in the glory of God - thisdepends on the flesh and will fail - Rom 6:142. The Christian can seek and secureeradication of the old nature and thus be freefrom sin - the objections to this are;a. There is no Scripture to back this upb. The world, the flesh and the devil are our 3great foes - the other 2 are not eradicatedbut overcome in the power of the HSp - thesame therefore goes for the fleshTuesday 12 July 2011
  26. 26. c. No human experience confirms this - and if it were true parents would give birth to sinless children. d. When accepted, what need is there for the ministry of the HSp? Yet we are told to walk in the Spirit, not let sin reign, mortify the flesh, yield to God etc. 3. Some believe that just by being saved they can live for the glory of God - Paul shows this as folly in Rom 7:15-8:4 - Rom 7:25 shows deliverance from the power of sin is through not by Christ - Rom 6:1-10 says our fallen nature is dealt with by co- crucifixion/death/burial with Christ and indwelling of HSp.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  27. 27. c. No human experience confirms this - and if it were true parents would give birth to sinless children. d. When accepted, what need is there for HMS Victory is a first rate ship of the line of the ministry of the HSp? Yet we are told to the Royal Navy, started in 1759 and walk in the Spirit, not let sin reign, mortify launched in 1765, most famous as Lord the flesh, yield to God etc. Nelsons flagship at just by being saved 3. Some believe thatthe Battle of Trafalgar. She is the oldestthe glory of still in Paul they can live for naval ship God - commission, folly in Rom 7:15-8:4 - in shows this asand now sits in dry dockRom Portsmouth, England as a museum ship. 7:25 shows deliverance from the power of sin is through not by Christ - Rom 6:1-10 says our fallen nature is dealt with by co- crucifixion/death/burial with Christ and indwelling of HSp.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  28. 28. F. Victory by the Holy SpiritA Christian is only delivered form thepower of sin by the Holy Spirit. Salvationfrom sin and the penalty of it is from Godand received by faith - we then live our lifein this action/attitude. Why do we have tolive in the power of the Spirit?a. In grace a believer faces an incredibleheavenly standard for life - we are nowcitizens of heaven with a demand to live asuitable lifestyle (superhuman in nature) -this can only be achieved through HSppower.Php 3:20, Eph 5:30 - Eph 4:1-3, 30 -Rom 8:4Tuesday 12 July 2011
  29. 29. 2. The Christian faces satan - therefore he needs to be strong in the Lord - Eph 6:10-12, 1 Jn 4:4 3. The Christian possesses the old nature which he is ultimately powerless to control - ultimately in haven we will be delivered from all guilt as well as the power of sin.Tuesday 12 July 2011
