Christ’s redemptive atonement effectually secured the salvation of God’s elect, which we receive through faith.
Faith does not justify us. Christ is our Justification. But faith receives it. Faith does not sanctify us. Christ is our Sanctification. But faith receives it. Faith does not redeem us. Christ is our Redemption. But faith receives it. Faith is not the instrument by which salvation is accomplished. Christ is our Salvation. But faith is the channel through which salvation flows into our souls. And this faith is the blood bought gift of Christ to His elect, redeemed people.
