Activity: Salvation Journey Map

After discussing the topics of regeneration, justification, sanctifica-

tion, and glorification, it can be valuable to create a visual represen-

tation of these concepts and how they relate to each other in the

form of a Salvation Journey Map. This activity will help both the lea-

der and the disciple to synthesize their learning.

Materials Needed:

• Large piece of paper or poster board

• Markers, colored pencils, or pens

• Stickers or other decorations (optional)


• Divide the poster board into four sections, each labeled with

one of the concepts: “Regeneration,” “Justification,” “Sanctifica-

tion,” and “Glorification.”

• Starting with “Regeneration,” reflect on the key verses and

discussion points from your study. Draw or write the main points

or ideas in this section. You might draw symbols, write key verses,

or note personal experiences related to this concept.

• Repeat the process for “Justification,” “Sanctification,” and

“Glorification.” Make sure to highlight the interconnectedness of

these concepts, showing how each step leads to the next on the

path of salvation.

• After completing all the sections, review the Salvation Journey

Map together. Discuss the journey of salvation as a whole, how

the concepts intertwine, and what each of you has learned or

experienced personally regarding these spiritual realities.

• Keep this map for future reference, or use it as a guide when

sharing these concepts with others.


This creative activity is not only a way to consolidate what you’ve

learned but also a visual reminder of the beautiful journey of faith

and salvation in Christ. It helps to understand the broader picture of

salvation and to connect personal experiences with these profound

theological concepts.
