The excellency of election

Posted: July 8, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

Oh the excellency of the doctrine of election, and of the saints’ final perseverance, to those who are truly sealed by the Spirit of promise!

I am persuaded, till a man comes to believe and feel these important truths, he cannot come out of himself; but when convinced of these, and assured of the application of them to his own heart, he then walks by faith indeed, not in himself but in the Son of God, who died and gave himself for him. Love, not fear, constrains him to obedience.

— George Whitefield, quoted by John Piper in“I Will Not Be a Velvet-Mouthed Preacher”
