上帝的拣选 [God’s Election]





Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 1:2 :“elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.”

Today’s Meditation: Salvation comes completely from Trinity God Himself. God Father planned, Spirit works, and Lord Jesus fulfils. We cannot be saved if we were not elected according to the foreknowledge of God. We cannot receive the salvation if it were not our obedience. The selection of God (God’s authority) and our obedience (our will) cannot paradox against one another. From one side, we need to fulfil our responsibilities; from the other side, we need to look up to the grace of God. We are nothing without the grace of God. Spirit separates us from the sins and the world so that we can go to Christ. Spirit is highly related to our salvation. As Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 12:31, blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.
