We preach election because there is not a single blessing that comes to us from the hand of our Redeemer that is not stamped with the hand of God’s electing love. The Scriptures say, “God hath blessed us according as He hath chosen us” (Ephesians 1:3-4). Again, “He hath chosen us that we should be holy” (Ephesians 1:4). Again, “The God of our fathers hath chosen thee that thou shouldst know His will” (Acts 22:14). It is not in ourselves that these blessings are contained. We have them because of OUR UNION WITH CHRIST, and we are united with Christ because of the Father’s Divine and Sovereign choice.
