Hello and welcome to the podcast!
Today we are starting our first podcast diving into the doctrine of Calvinism. This is the first episode of a lengthy series dedicated to teaching Calvinism through the scriptures and notes from our John MacArthur Study Bible.
Today we cover Romans 8: 28-30 and Eph 1: 4-11.
Romans 8: 28 – 30:
‘And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. ‘
Ephesians 1: 4-11:
‘just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, ‘
We are dedicated to honoring Jesus Christ through this podcast series and hope that you find great joy and peace knowing that we have been called for His Glory.
