"Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity." Titus 2:14

Sins of heart. Sins of lip. Sins of life. There are five things as regards sin, from which our blessed Lord came to redeem us—its guilt, its filth, its power, its love, its practice. By His death, He redeemed us from sin's guilt. By the washing of regeneration, He delivers us from sin's filth. By the power of His resurrection, He liberates us from sin's dominion. By revealing His beauty, He frees us from sin's love. By making the conscience tender in His fear, He preserves us from sin's practice. The blood of Jesus purifies us from all sin.

Are all these things so under the cross, or were we redeemed from the penalty of sin, and all these things are made possible under the power of the Holy Spirit in sanctification as we apply the ongoing redemptive power of of the blood?

Fitting with the old saying, "I am saved, I am being saved, and I will be ultimately saved. " "In the meantime, I must work out my own salvation with fear and trembling."
