Lightner: an unavoidable revelation

Sunday, April 22, 2018
    [Jesus’ prayer:] I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.
    —John 17:6-7 (NIV)
    The sincere student of Scripture cannot avoid the truth of God’s choice of individuals from among the sinful race of men. We may not understand this, but we must never deny it. Scripture is filled with this great truth: it is not an isolated doctrine of the Word.
    ... Robert P. Lightner (b. 1931), The God of the Bible [1973], Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House, 1978, formerly published as The First Fundamental: God, p. 133 (see the book)
    See also John 17:6-7; 10:27-29; 15:19; 18:9; Rom. 8:29-30; Eph. 1:4-5,11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I have not deserved Your grace.
