1 Thessalonians 2.11-12 – Coming to Faith
Posted: 2 July 2010 in 1 Thessalonians, Scripture

As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children, That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

Elsewhere on the web yesterday somebody was asking her readers whether they were sure they had chosen God. I think she knew the answer – namely that God has chosen us. The Bible is everywhere insistent that nobody chooses God – instead it is God who chooses and calls whom he wishes. Even our response of thanksgiving for our faith is only possible because God has gifted us with a desire to worship him.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (James 1.17)
