DAY 19 SUNDAY: MAY 2019

THE ELECTION OF GOD MUST SURELY STAND!

For this is the word of promise: “At this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son.” And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls) (Romans 9:9-11).

Whatever God wills must surely stand. The Bible says in the opening text that for this is the word of promise: “At this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son.” And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls). Of course, every Christian should take note of the fact that whatever God says must surely come to pass and stand sure forever.  

The word, “Election” in this context is not the worldly type of politics but a divine arrangement of events even before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4). In the opening text the Bible says that the son of Sarah, Isaac was elected by God to be the heir apparent of the promise. In the same way, Jacob who was the younger twin brother to Esau was also elected by God to continue the promise of God to Abraham. Therefore, every Christian by divine election is a descendant of Abraham through the Seed of promise which is Jesus Christ forever.

Every Christian is divinely elected by God to be a partaker of the promise of God through Abraham. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Peter 1:10, “Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.” God has called you as His heir apparent through Jesus Christ. Therefore, it is your duty to make your call and election sure through obedience by faith. By the absolute obedience to the commandments of God through His Word of life, a Christian knowingly and unknowingly makes his call and election sure forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is part and parcel of God’s election; therefore, it is his duty to make the call and election of God sure in his life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Knowing, beloved brethren, your election by God (1 Thessalonians 1:4).
