The divine undertakings in the salvation of sinners fall into these two categories; 1.Acts of Divine Justice 2.Acts of the super-abounding grace of God. Those acts dealing with human unworthiness and acts of sin are acts of justice. AMONG THESE WE FIND FORGIVENESS, JUSTIFICATION, DEATH TO THE LAW, FREEDOM FROM THE LAW, AND THE NEW CREATION.ALL THIS COMES BY THE CROSS. Those aspects of salvation where God bestows or imparts His benefits are immediate acts of grace. These include; gift of eternal life, imputed righteousness of god, and every spiritual blessing.
