Lewis Sperry Chafer on the Terms of Salvation
Too much emphasis cannot be placed on the fact that now, according to the Bible, salvation is the result of the work of God for the individual, rather than the work of the individual for God, or even the work of the individual for himself. Eventually the one who is saved by the power of God may, after that divine work is accomplished, do “good works” for God; for salvation is said to be “unto good works” Eph 2: Good works are evidently made possible by salvation; but these good works, which follow salvation, do not add anything to the all-sufficient and perfect saving work of God.
As used in the New Testament, the word salvation may indicate all or a part of the divine undertaking. When the reference is to all of the work of God, the whole transformation is in view from the estate wherein one is lost and condemned to the final appearance of that one in the image of Christ in glory.
This larger use of the word, therefore, combines in it many separate works of God for the individual, such as Atonement, Grace, Propitiation, Forgiveness, Justification, Imputation, Regeneration, Adoption, Sanctification, Redemption and Glorification.
The two following passages describe the estate from which and the estate into which the individual is saved: Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: There could be no greater contrast of sallvation estates for man than those described in these passages. This transformation, it must be conceded, rather than representing the greatest thing impotent man can do for God, represents the greatest thing the infinite God can do for man; for there is nothing to be conceived of beyond the estate to which this salvation brings one, salvaton, “like Christ” and “conformed to the image of his Son.
Much of the whole divine undertaking in salvation is accomplished in the saved one salvatiln the moment he exercises saving faith.
So, also, some portions of this work are in the form of a process of transformation after the first work is wholly accomplished. And, again, there is a phase of the divine undertaking which is revealed as consumating the whole work of God at the moment of its completion.
This last aspect of salvation is wholly future. Salvation, then, in the present dispensation, may be considered in three tenses as it is revealed in the Scriptures: The following passages are clear statements of these various aspects of the one divine undertaking:.
The child of God was saved from the guilt and penalty of sin when he believed: The child of God, constituted such through belief, is being saved from the power and domination of sin on the same principle of faith: For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” Phl 2: The child of God, begotten as such through belief, is yet to be saved from the presence of cafer into the presence of God: To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time” 1Pe 1: Beloved now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: So, again, there sslvation passages in which these various time aspects in salvation are all combined: Salvatino he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that slvation should be holy and without blemish” Eph 5: Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
