We met last night to begin our study of God as Saviour - what a privilege! We will eventually turn to look at the Cross, at the Resurrection, at Justification and Sanctification (etc.). But last night our focus was very simple: God has freely chosen to be a Saviour God. This is undeserved, unprovoked, and unmerited.
And yet he seeks us anyway.
Our focus was the doctrine of election - God's free choice to be God in whatever way he sees fit, the Father's predestination of the Son to the praise of his name, and the Triune God's election of a people who he takes as his precious possession.
"Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love he sought me;
And on his shoulder, gently laid,
And home rejoicing brought me!"
