    1. True, Jim. This set of verses is a good summary that capsulizes the Triune GOD’s work on our salvation; namely: election, irresistible call, regeneration, and justification, sanctification, and glorification. All three Persons of the HOLY TRINITY is also mentioned in these verses. Yes, some of these terms/Truths/doctrines can be separate sermons and are actually, month-long subseries in the GOD’s Grace series.

      To recap the series, GOD the FATHER chose us before creation. He then calls and regenerates us through His Word. We are justified before GOD the FATHER because of JESUS CHRIST’s atoning sacrifice to cleanse us from all our sins; and we humbly accept this Truth by faith. We now live a sanctified life by faith alone, with the guidance, conviction, and intercession of the HOLY SPIRIT. Jesus also intercepted for us and completes our sanctification process. We persevere in spite of temptations and tribulations. And in the end, we are transformed in a glorified body when CHRIST returns. All of these is for GOD’s glory! Blessings to you and your family!

      1. “ Yes, some of these terms/Truths/doctrines can be separate sermons and are actually, month-long subseries in the GOD’s Grace series.”. Ah true it can be a month long subseries with each term! Good point!

    1. Yes, Crissy! So many Truths on our salvation by the work of the Triune GOD. It is like everything was placed in just a few sentences. One can reckon that the God-inspired Paul must have said/wrote this with the daily verses in mind.😉 But He wrote this to simply say we are beloved by GOD because of what He does to us (i.e. salvation) that He calls us His own possession (and keeping us from wicked deception now and in the end times). This is in reference to verses 1-12, where Paul discussed the Tribulation, the son of destruction, and wicked deceptions for those that will be perishing. This will be happening in the future. Because of this so much gold i.e. salvation, Paul wants us to be grateful/thankful to GOD. Blessings to you, your family, and your ministry!
