Great Sermon! Election is not an easy doctrine. My first reaction on this doctrine before, is that how about my family and friends, if they are not chosen? My finite understanding asked that question but who am I to question God's sovereignty and actions.As a study this doctrine, slowly, by God's grace I understood that doctrine by the help of our church and saw God's grace and mercy to me that from all the people in the world, I am one of His chosen people. Inspite of my sin and wickedness, He chose me.
On the other hand, the extreme of this doctrine, knowing that God has chosen people, is that we will not share the Gospel anymore. This is wrong. We still need to reach out for other people who do not know Christ.
