Biblical Facts About Salvation (part 3)

How was your Sunday, bloggers? Here is the 3rd part of this series that I called, "Biblical Facts About Salvation". Ponder and be blessed!
GOD'S WORK IN SALVATION (GOD THE FATHER)
.
The Father's work was to design the plan in eternity.
1. Foreknows -
"For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers." Romans 8:29 NIV
.
"...who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance." 1 Peter 1:2 NIV
.
2. Predestinate -
"And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified." Romans 8:30 NIV
.
"He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will—" Ephesians 1:5 NIV
.
3. Choose/Elect -
"For many are invited, but few are chosen." Matthew 22:14 NIV
.
"Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies." Romans 8:33 NIV
.
4. Calls -
"The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call." Acts 2:39 NIV
.
"And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ." Romans 1:6 NIV
.
This series is from my hand-out notes during our six months Church Membership Class in LWCM , Banilad, Cebu, Philippines. The class was conducted by our Senior Pastor Mel Caparros.

Hi Grace, how you doin'?
God is our best teacher and HE resides in our heart.
And hands that help are Holier than lips that pray.
Best regards, Lee.
