Determining God’s pattern of salvation could be a helpful tool in understanding what God requires of us today. Many talk about God’s plan of salvation, but what about God’s pattern of salvation? Obviously, the system under which man is accountable to God has changed since Creation, but God doesn’t change, and as a result, we can find His consistent fingerprint on various topics and situations. For example, how God desires to be worshipped has changed from Abel, to Moses, to Paul, but we still see certain patterns of worship (e.g. God-centered, “first-fruits sacrifice”, Holy Spirit dwelling, etc.) that have not changed. As with worship, is God’s pattern of salvation evident throughout the Bible times?
How Scripture answers "What is God’s pattern of salvation?"
God’s pattern of salvation is evident since the days after Creation1,2, throughout the Mosaic period3,4,5,6,7, and all the way up to just days before the institution of the new covenant in Christ’s blood8. While the convenant has changed, God’s pattern of salvation has always been a combination of grace, faith, and obedience1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8.
