Redeemed for a Purpose by Arlen L Chitwood and published by Classics.
Man was created for a purpose, which had to do with regality; and fallen man has been redeemed with this same purpose in view. Salvation has been provided for fallen man in order that God might bring man back into the position for which he was created in the beginning. Accordingly, the gospel message, the good news seen throughout Scripture, has two facets - the good news concerning the grace of God, and the good news concerning the glory of Christ:
1) The Gospel of the Grace of God is a message dealing with Christ’s past, finished work at Calvary. It is the message of the Cross; it is a message surrounding the shedding of blood; it is a message surrounding death; and it is a message which is to be proclaimed to the unsaved - to those “dead in trespasses and sins.” The reception of this message - man believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died in his stead - results in eternal salvation.
2) The Gospel of the Glory of Christ is a message encompassing Christ's present work but culminating in and dealing more specifically with His future work. It is a message surrounding present Christian living, with a view to that which lies ahead. And, encompassing Christ's present work as High Priest, the gospel of the glory of Christ (as the gospel of the grace of God) is also a message surrounding the shedding of blood (Christ’s shed blood now on the mercy seat in the heavenly sanctuary). But now matters surround Christ’s glory and that of bringing many sons unto glory with Him. The reception of this message - redeemed man exercising faithfulness to his calling - will result in an individual being accorded the honour and privilege of ascending the throne with Christ in His kingdom when He returns in all His power and glory.
