Do you still believe we can loss our salvation? Please reread this series then. Last, let talk about the fact that in “The Grace Covenant”, we are chosen. Chosen for what? Chosen to receive salvation. Why are we chosen to be saved, and the rest not to be saved? I beat that is making your mind hurt badly right now. And if we are chosen, then what should that mean for me and you?
How do we know we are chosen?
Bible says so. Almost 70% of the letters in the NT talk about us being a chosen people and somewhere in the bible, in few places, God directs us as the “True Worshiper”. “He chose to give us birth through the word of truth…” James 1:18
Why are we chosen?
It’s for the glorification of God. God knew that mankind would reject him, so he chosen a few and said, “these shall never reject me.”. Why did he do this, all for his glory. Who are we to question what God does, we are the creation, he is the creator.
Why then not cause all men to be saved?
People have to go to hell. If he saved everyone, then who would honor him. If he saved few, then all knee’s shall bow to him. He did cause sin to come into the world, because he wanted all creation to be less then he is, so that in the rightful time, he alone can receive all his glory and honor. That is why we are Chosen. As Paul says, that God said to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy…” Romans 9:14; Ex. 33:19.
Big question is, why then do you think salvation can be taken? Where is it by our on effort that we are saved? It was a gift of God that this New Covenant. We receive salvation by Grace, throw faith.
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, BECAUSE though Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set us free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2
