No Alteration in Decrees

When God calls a man, He does not repent of it. God does not, as many friends do, love one day, and hate another; or as princes, who make their subjects favourites, and afterwards throw them into prison. This is the blessedness of a saint; his condition admits of no alteration.

God's call is founded upon His decree, and His decree is immutable. Acts of grace cannot be reversed.

God blots out His people's sins, but not their names.

  1. I can think of no greater ground for assurance of our complete salvation; and no greater ground for confidence when we share the Gospel and call men and women to trust Jesus Christ and Him crucified for forgiveness of sins and His promise of eternal life.

  2. What a comparison to the tentative, "hope this works out," hand-wringing, Arminian "Get it together or else" message!
