Controversy surrounds a teaching about election, or whether people are chosen by God for salvation or rejection. Quit puzzling and read on.
If one is concerned that he was ruled out by God’s election, he should only need to ask if he wants to be included. If the answer is affirmative, he would already be included among that joyful congregation.
I realized that fact by listening to a brief sermon by C. H. Spurgeon. It is a simple enough question and the answer is just as simple. No one will ever be rejected by God if he only desires that salvation.
But if he treats his salvation cheaply, what was thought to be salvation is void. No one can stand in God’s presence without sincerely wanting to be there, subjecting himself to the Eternal Lord’s perfection.
