Salvation includes many interconnected teachings. Here are some examples: “Whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified” (Rom. 8:29-30). “Blessed be the God…who…chose us in Him before the foundation of the world,…having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:3-7). These many blessings are necessary to meet certain requirements of the law, to correct deficiencies in man, to provide new resources for the life of faith, or to manifest the glories of God. No wonder it is “so great salvation” (Heb. 2:3)!
