Reflection

The doctrine of predestination should lead us to praise God.

Why?

He has selected a people for glory!

Slaves to sin? That is no longer who we are.

The eternal consequences of sin? We are rescued from enduring them.

We are new creations in Christ. We are growing in godliness every day. We will spend eternity in the presence of One who is most holy, most wise, most free, most absolute. The One who is infinite perfection has chosen a people to know Him and dwell with Him.

He who does all things well has decreed this. It is good. It is worthy of praise.

Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For it is pleasant and praise is becoming.

-Psalm 147:1
