Making Your Calling and Election Sure

“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall
never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 1:10-11

Are you elect? Are you sure? Your obedience to God  proves your election (it does not initiate it) (Mark 16:16; Luke 23:39-43). There is not one verse in the Bible that threatens the elect with loss of their eternal life! Praise the Lord! (Ps 89:29-37; Jer 33:17-22; 31:35-37; John 6:39; 17:2; Romans 4:16; 8:29-39; 11:29; etc., etc.).   God bestowed His love on us for eternity, with the gift of knowing about it to remove all our fear (I Jn 4:16-19). If we don’t obey God we have no assurance of salvation. I thank the Lord for the assurance that He has allows us to have! Without it our lives would be miserable! We would live in constant fear.

Thank you Lord for your electing grace and the knowledge and assurance you give me of it!
