The Sovereign Grace of God (Part 1)

Dr. Van Lees, 03/10/2012


Have you recognized the deadly error of salvation by self-reliance, and embraced the Gospel of salvation by the sovereign grace of God?

Romans 11:6-10

But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.

What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was seeking. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened, as it is written,

“God gave them a spirit of stupor,
eyes that would not see
and ears that would not hear,
down to this very day.”

And David says,

“Let their table become a snare and a trap,
a stumbling block and a retribution for them;
10 let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see,
and bend their backs forever.” (ESV)
