Salvation Phases … OR … My Ambassador of Kwan

SOTERIOLOGY is the theological term for the study of salvation. Although humans have certain roles/responsibilities in the process, salvation is not something people do, but something that God does.

Of course, in describing our being saved, we must ask, “Saved from what?” This answer has three parts, for Christian salvation is portrayed in three aspects, or phases: Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification.

I have been saved from the penalty of sin.

I am being saved from the power of sin.

I will be saved from the presence of sin.

Is salvation justification or is it sanctification or glorification? When God saves we get it all, the “Kwan” of salvation, a three-fold salvation. Those He justifies, He sanctifies and glorifies.

In subsequent posts, I plan to detail each of these three aspects (i.e., justification, sanctification, and glorification) to show the greatness of God’s salvation. He is the ultimate Ambassador of Kwan.
