Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. - Psalm 119:105

Discipleship

Hope is essential! Do you have hope? Do you know what hope is?

Hope is our forward outlook to be in Christ forever. This produces Joy. Heb. 11:1, "the substance of things hoped for".
Election means to select or to chose, that God chose us by His purpose, period, by nothing else, either by our means or His foreknowledge. The principle theme is agreed upon, that God does choose us and makes us holy...The debate rages over how He chooses...
In a nutshell we have free will to choose, this in reformed theology is called "free agency".
Blaming others is an escape mechanism, which helps us avoid the consequences.
Up until the Fall, humanity drew their support and substance directly from God, in perfect relation, and when they fell it was all gone.
Christ's atonement literally is by His shed blood, covers our sin so that God does not see it nor is affected by it, so He can forgive, give us grace, and bring us into the kingdom...
Calvin stated that we cannot please God; it is by what Christ has done through faith that pleases Him.

Total depravity
Unconditional Election
Limited Atonement
Irresistible Grace
Perseverance of the Saints

Think Calvin was wrong? See what the Bible has to say….
The Incarnation simply means God came to be a man. He was fully man while remaining fully God. The Incarnation fulfills God's purpose, as Christ the Creator submitted to the Father in His manifestation into humanity, becoming Fully God and Fully Human, to become and serve humanity, this was His ultimate triumph. He is Holy and as the "incarnate Son," remained loyal and obedient to His own precepts and the challenge of sin and worldliness.
Not as duty but desire, not as law but love, not as demand but delight, not as necessity but privilege, not as ritual but relationship, not "in order to" but "because of."
My purpose in this article is to help guide you in a further understanding of how to apply His Spirit in your life for living and ministry. I will also attempt to answer some of the questions that have come forth concerning this subject, and give further clarification from the first article.
