Wonderfully said, Shane. These doctrines all hang together. All through the OT Israel is God's elect, so really there should be no surprise that believers are just as elect in the NT.

To know there is an elect out there is an encouragement TO evangelize, to realize our efforts are not in vain. Paul did everything "for the sake of the elect."


so i guess that means all christians are disciples, very good article shane!

I know what you're saying and that it is biblical. I know God can do whatever He wants - He is God. I know the gospel is for everyone and we should try to reach everyone with the gospel. My heartbreak is that not everyone will receive his grace - I think of my loved ones. It's very hard, wouldn't you agree? And then I ask, why me?
