Augustine once wrote, “God’s grace goes before the unwilling to make them willing; His grace follows the willing to make his will effectual.” In other words, God is hard at work in human affairs to save the lost, and once they are saved, His work continues until they are glorified. And as we will learn in today’s text, none of God’s work is wasted. He’s known from everlasting exactly how He would administer His grace and exactly who He would minister it too. How does He know these things? Because He is the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Savior.
May you be blessed by the truth of God’s grace contained in today’s text,
