Salvation For, To, and Through Us

"The salvation of God is for us. The Father has chosen us. Jesus’ blood has purchased us. We are adopted orphans.

Salvation is to us. The Holy Spirit stirs our heart, so that we come to faith in Jesus Christ personally. We are forgiven sinners.

Salvation is also through us. The world will be blessed by the good deeds we do in the context of the community of faith. We are commissioned communities.

Kevin Wax quoting from his forthcoming book, Holy Subversion: Allegiance to Christ in an Age of Rivals" at Salvation For, To, and Through Us « Kingdom People

(I'm going to have to get this book)
