According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Ephesians 1:4
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13
Ephesians 1:4 says that God chose us in Him before the foundation of the world yet Romans 10:13 says that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Which is true? DID God make the choice as to our salvation or is that decision left to the individual person? BOTH ARE TRUE! GOD IN His foreknowledge chose those whom he knew from all of past eternity would Choose Him when they heard the Gospel. Can any true Bible believer doubt our eternal security upon realizing this great truth? WE who have trusted Christ and HIM alone for salvation are as secure as GOD Himself. Praise be to His name!
