The ordo salutis, the order of salvation, describes the process by which the work of Christ is made manifest in the life of the redeemed man. Dr. Berkoff called it a process, and one which is subjectively realized, and he added, “It aims at describing in their logical order and also in their interrelations the various movements of the Holy Spirit in the application of the work of redemption. The emphasis is not on what man does in appropriating the grace of God, but on what God does in applying it.”
