The Salvation of the Triune God

Each glorious person in the Godhead has a glorious part in our salvation. God the Father chose, sanctified, and set us apart in Christ before the world was; God the Son took our humanity into union to His personal Godhead, was made flesh, lived a perfect life, suffered and died a solemn death, rose again from the dead, and is now exalted at the right hand of the Father, ever living to make intercession for us; God the Spirit awakened the dead and “called us with a holy calling.”  This call is the solemn, soul-quickening, heart-rending call of the Holy God from death to life, from darkness to light, from the power of sin and Satan to the kingdom of the Son of His love. So that, before the world was, the church was saved purposely by God the Father; in time meritoriously by, the God-man, Christ Jesus, who now lives above, their mediator, High Priest, and advocate; and in the day of God’s power they are saved manifestly and vitally by the “washing of regeneration, and the renewing of the Holy Spirit”.   (Titus 3:4-7)

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
