Good morning all,
The word of the day is “grow.” There's always been a lot of controversy concerning the issue of election in the Bible. Within all that madness, we may not ever get complete answers on what that all means. But what we do know is that Paul understood that by God's selections, this referred to a calling from God. The church in Thessalonica received encouragement from Paul that each of them was called by the Lord to live a life for Christ.
“But we must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth.”
~2 Thes. 2:13
God does not want us to preach election to people who do not believe, but instead the gospel. My question for you is: how are you using each day to preach the gospel to both people who believe and those who do not believe in Christ? Each of us who have a faith in the Savior know that we will see him one day in paradise. My prayer is that you let God use your life as a way to preach the gospel to others.
Praying for you,
