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.
JUSTIFICATION (Past Tense)
I have been saved from the penalty of sin.
SANCTIFICATION (Present Tense)
I am being saved from the power of sin.
GLORIFICATION (Future Tense)
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.
