What Salvation?
  • Biblical salvation has several components – it is more than forgiveness.
  • Biblical salvation has two major spheres:  legal and relational.

Why Work it Out?
  • The project of the renovation my life is not complete nor should it be stagnant.
  • We participate with Christ to work out what He has worked in us.
  • Grace is never opposed to our effort but our entitlement.

How is it Worked Out?
  • Relying on God’s initiative, direction, motivation, and energy.
  • Living by faith in God’s promises and in obedience to His precepts.
  • Taking up practices of spiritual disciplines that God uses to transform us.
  • Walking in perseverance during the everyday and extraordinary trials of life.

What are the Outcomes?
  • Greater desire for and actualized obedience.
  • Greater perspective and unity.
  • Greater pursuit of purity.
  • Greater witness in word and deed.
  • Greater willingness to sacrifice.
