This week’s term: Glorification – The work of God whereby the believer has the old nature eradicated, and is finally conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. This, though minutely realized as we grow in grace, will not be, in a major sense, realized until this mortal has put on immortality, and we are given a body like unto His glorious body.
Last week’s term: Perseverance – The responsibility and activity of the believer in which he continues in the basic direction of righteousness in spite of adversity. It is only made possible, and is always effected, by divine preservation, and yet is the believer’s responsibility. It is, therefore, never perfectly exercised, but will always, in some measure, be present in the true believer’s life.
