The author is looking at the Lord's work of salvation from its inception to its completion(Past,present and future).
The beginning of God's saving work(that is in the experience of the saint)is 'salvation from the pleasure of sin'which takes place at regeneration(when a nature that hates evil and loves righteousness is imparted).The next aspect is 'salvation from the penalty of sin'when faith and repentance are excercised.The third part of God's saving work is 'salvation from the power of sin'.This is the lifelong spiritual warfare that every Chrisitan is engaged in until their death.
The spiritual battle that a believer must deal with is necessary because the sinful nature(the flesh)is not improved or eradicated at conversion.There are few modern writers that have the depth of insight that Pink(and the Puritans)did on the nature and intensity of this spiritual combat.Mr.Pink commenting on Rom.7:15 writes on p.29"This is one of the surest marks of regeneration. In the fullest sense of the word the believer "allows" it not before he sins.For every real Christian when in his right mind desires to be wholly kept from sinning.He allows it not when doing it,for in the actual commiting thereof there is an inward reserve-the new nature consents not."Mr.Pinks written ministry on 'practical chrisitnaity'strikes the balance of seeking to have the reader examine their spiritual condition(in a very searching manner)but also a right understanding of the true nature of this ongoing spiritual warfare will keep the saint from being overly discouraged.The quote above will help with the latter.
The Christians salvation that looks to the future is their'salvation from the presence of sin'when their Lord and saviour returns 'unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation'(Heb.9:28).
There is major help here for the weary traveller on 'the road to the celestial city'(both young and old )'in the Lord'.
