Today, I wanted to offer the following and get your thoughts. First of all, here's Paul's words to the Church in Ephesus.
...He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. 1:4 NASB
Now on to a thought of the "50-cent" word predestination. Catch this:
If we see God's grace in Christ as the basis for our 'election' to salvation, we will not dream of looking for it in ourselves and in our superiority to other people.
- Shirley Guthrie
Guthrie goes on to say, If we understand the meaning of predestination in light of the biblical witness to God's grace in Christ, we will understand it as both a gift and a task.
Big snack today. Chew slowly and then let me hear your comments.
