Personal Awareness of Sin and Salvation
Simply ask yourself, if God gives everyone the same grace to enable all people according to their free-will to receive Christ, then what made YOU different? Why does one brother accept Christ and get saved, while another sibling in the same environment remains heart hearted? Is it because you and I were smarter, more determined, or are more moral? As for me, no way!
The only thing that distinguishes me from others is grace. The only thing I have EVER contributed to my salvation is SIN.
If you humbly believe in grace, you must inevitably accept God’s sovereignty in election.
