The Real Purpose of Election

The realization that God has chosen an individual to life and glory, though he was not a whit better than others, leads the mature Christian to cherish the most ecstatic feelings of gratitude to our heavenly Father. With an upturned face the adoring believer confesses to heaven that, apart from eternally given grace, he would never have believed in Christ, nor even have wished to believe. Then, lowering his gaze and covering his streaming eyes, the grateful Christian exclaims: “My Father and my God! To Thee alone be everlasting glory for such unmerited grace!”

– Maurice Roberts, quoted in Living for God’s Glory
