Wisdom for Election…

Here are some wise words regarding the often controversial doctrine of Election that is taught in the Bible (cf. Ephesians 1:4, 2:4-6; Romans 8:28-29; Philippians 1:6 to name a few)…

The doctrine of election is to be used, not as a bomb to be dropped, not as a banner to be waved, but as a bastion for the soul in the midst of difficult and sometimes doubting days. Eric Alexander

This is so true!  God’s sovereign election is a humbling, strengthening and anchoring truth for the child of God, rather than a bullet point of demarcation of orthodox fidelity.  For some, coming to the place of understanding God’s sovereignty in election has taken years of study in the Word.  For other, it is a burr in the shoe of a traditional theological framework.  However, for many it is the soul’s comfort, the clarifying truth and the satisfying hope.
