Making Your Election Sure
Election refers to a “picking out”, a selection,
used in Acts 9.15 of Saul of Tarsus as being thechoice of God. It is used 3 times in Romans 9
where the reference to the verse “ Jacob have Iloved and Esau have I hated” is well known.
This group is designated by the fact that while thefinished work of Jesus Christ is sufficient, in thecase of the elect they are also responsible for and
capable of, having the will and power to “choose”.
