SALVATION PRODUCES HOLINESS
December 11, and 18, 2013
PASTOR/TEACHER CHARLES e. WHISNANT
THE PURPOSE OF SALVATION IS THAT SALVATION WILL PRODUCE HOLINESS IN US
1A WHAT IS SALVATION:
1B Salvation means being rescued from jeopardy and misery, so that one is now safe. Exodus 52:2; Jonah 2:9 and Psalms 116:6
2B Salvation from sin and its consequences.
3B Salvation has three tenses
1C from sin’s guilt (the past aspect, exposure to penalty is gone)
2C from its power (the present aspect: sin no longer rules us
3C from its presence (the future aspect: sin will one day be no more than a bad memory.)
4B Christians have been saved from:
1C from the wrath of God (Romans 5:9; 1 Thess. 1:10
2C from eternal death: Romans 6:21 and 23
3C from the dominion of sin: Romans 6:14, 18
4C from the life of fear: Romans 8:15
5C from controlling habits of ungodliness and immorality: Titus 2:12
Christians will one day be fully conformed to Jesus in body and moral character:
Philippians 3:20 and I John 3:2.
5B While we live in joyful favor with God, we serve out of a gratitude of worship, there is this indwelling sin.But through the energy of the Holy Spirit we gain victory: Romans 5:12; 12:1; 8:14; Galatians 5:16.Romans 7:24 and 8:23.
6B The Desire For Holiness:
For the moment the ability for holiness exceeds our ability. God’s does give us salvation,
and we are into our salvation, but salvation is not yet fully into us. We have a taste, but the full effect is yet future.
7B Salvation Gives Us The Following
1C Forgiveness, justification, reconciliation, pardon, acceptance, standing, fellowship. John
5:24 and Romans 8:32-39.
2C Salvation also put us in Christ: called “union with Christ.”. Romans 5:12-19 Ephesians 4:20-24 and Colossians 1:27; 5:4.
3C Our life as a moral person is supernaturalized by the Holy Spirit which makes the presence of Christ “to us”, and reproduces in us the what God’s gives us:
1D The desires, aims, attitudes, and behavior patterns that we see in Jesus Christ.
2A THE PURPOSE OF OUR SALVATION: BECAUSE OF SIN
1B The question is why do we need salvation: Note: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vbydx95tVQ http://cwhisna.blogspot.com/ Martyn Lloyd Jones gives a great reason why we need salvation.
2B The Definition of Sin
1C Any want of conformity unto, or transgression of, the law of God.
2C It is an energy, an obsession, an allergic reaction to God’s law, an irrational anti-God
3C Our very nature is driven toward self-gratification.
4C Here is sin in action: it is nonconformity to God in several ways:
1E rebellion against God.
2E transgression of the bounds God’s sets for us.
3E missing the mark God has told us to aim at.
4E defiling oneself in the sight of God
5C Sin: The mind of sinful man is death. its hostile to God, It do not submit to God’s law,
can the mind do so. Romans 8:6-8.
3B The Bible is like a mirror for self-knowledge, that is the Bible shows us ourselves as we are.
4B “No smokescreen of religioustity can save us from sin.”
5B Do all people know that they are sinners? Yes and No. All people know where are not they obey God or reject His ways. And as result they don’t believe they are sinners. All people have a certain amount of knowledge of God, thus they are without excuse: Romans 1:18.
3A GOD’S PLAN FOR SALVATION: (Set the stage for holiness.)
1B How did God bring me into salvation that I now enjoy? I Thessalonian 1:4
Well, we see this fleshed out in the life of Jesus Christ. I Timothy 2:56
2B Jesus Christ is the model for holiness: Mark 10:45, Matthew 26:28 and I Timothy 2:5
3B Through the work of the Holy Spirit’s work in people’s heart, once the message that invites them to faith in Christ has gotten in their heads, they become certain that Jesus Christ is act.
One way or another, out of changed hearts there issues a commitment to live a changed live.
This new life: A real and radical alteration of our personal being.
We enjoy a new status:
- (1)Justified: (2) Adopted: and (4) Cleansed: (5) Put “In Christ”.

- Hebrews 4:13; John 1:5; 4:8,16
The divine agenda for the rest of my life on earth is my SANCTIFICATION
