Chosen in Christ
The apostle Paul broke into doxologies when writing about the electing grace of God. Far from cold, lifeless doctrine, the revelation of God’s sovereign mercy stirs heart and mind, and comforts the soul.
Writes Richard Phillips in this engaging exposition of Ephesians 1, “There is no debate raging within the Godhead concerning our place in salvation, no tension; there are no awkward silences or heated conversations. Rather there is a grand and cohesive conspiracy of love originating in the eternal and sovereign grace of the Father.”
