Salvation Is In Three Tenses.
Salvation Is By Grace Through Faith
The Christian has been saved eternally by God’s grace when he/she believes in their hearts by faith and confessed with their mouths that Jesus Christ is their Lord and savior through Jesus’s death on the cross which was the propitiation, or if you will, the full payment for all man’s sins (past, present, future) and believes that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day after crucifixion and now sits at the right hand of God Almighty in heaven. This same Jesus will return for us that we shall spend eternity in worship and fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. With the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he/she confesses, resulting in salvation. This salvation is is a free gift and is wholly not by works. The divine order is first salvation, then works.

Galatians 2:19-20 For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?  Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Romans 7:14-24 For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin.  For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.  But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good.  So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.  For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.  For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want.  But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.  I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good.  For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man,  but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.  Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this
death?  Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.

1 Corinthians 15:42-44 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body;  it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;  it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
