What Was Involved in Our Coming to Christ?
Two lessons ago we looked at how God’s intention to save His people is rooted in the agreement of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit from all eternity to save a chosen people and in the predestination and election of that people to Himself. In the previous lesson we examined how God brings us to the point of accepting the salvation He wrought for us through the crucifixion of Christ, through raising Christ from the dead, and through sending the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The fact that God chose a people for Himself from all eternity raises the question as to what that means experientially for the individual Christian. Understanding this requires examining the nature of regeneration, effectual calling, faith, and conversion.
