Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Personal Confession of Faith, Article V. Election

[If you haven't done so already, please read the introduction HERE.]

I believe that God, before the foundation of the world, for His own glory did elect a great host of men and women to eternal life as an act of free and sovereign grace (Eph 1:4-6; Rev 5:11). This election was in no way dependent upon His foresight of human faith, decision, works, or merit, but of His mere mercy in Christ (Acts 13:48; Rom 4:4-5; 5:6-8; 9:16; Eph 2:9; 2 Tim 1:9)-- in consequence of which choice the elect are called, justified and glorified (Rom 8:29-30).
