SALVATION - 1 PETER 1:8, 9 The Hebrew & Greek words for salvation mean "to save" or "to deliver" in the broadest sense in the Old Testament, especially in the Psalms and Isaiah, the Hebrew word came to mean deliverance from sin or sickness. This deliverance is attributed to God's work on behalf of his people. In the New Testament the Greek word may refer to initial, full, or final salvation from sin. Initial Salvation. In the epistles salvation acquires its distinctively Christian meaning. God, the Father, saves us by sending His Son, and through Him, the Holy Spirit. In Christ's death God has "reconciled us to Himself" (2 Corinthians 5:18). This saving act of God atones for sins that we have committed. When by faith we accept God's forgiveness through Christ, we are saved from the penalty due us for our sins and are made right with God. Wesleyans speak of this deliverance from sin as initial salvation. Full Salvation or Entire Sanctification. but the human problem with sin goes deeper than the committed acts. There is in us a sinful disposition from which we need to be saved. From this deliverance God has sent His Holy Spirit to cleanse our lives from the sinful nature (Titus 2:14), and to sanctify us completely (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Because at this point God has provided both forgiveness for sins and cleansing from sinful nature, we speak of this deliverance as entire sanctification or full salvation. Final Salvation or Glorification. With initial and full salvation we are given God's best provision for living above sin in this life. But we are never completely safe from the power of Satan while still subject to temptation and the possibility of wrong choices. We shall be given final salvation/glorification only when, beyond death, we hear our Lord's commendation: "Well done, good and faithful servant.... Enter into the joy of your lord" (Matthew 25:21).
