Because of Calvary,
II Thessalonians 2:13-14II Thessalonians 2:13-14 ESV Stand Firm
13 But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits[a] to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. 14 To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
II Thessalonians 2:13-14
“Some men cannot endure to hear the doctrine of election — I suppose they like to choose their own wives; but they are not willing that Christ should select his bride, the Church. Everybody is to have a free will except God. But let them know that God still exercises a sovereign choice among the sons of men. Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you.’ Blessed be his name, the truth still stands.”
