The Most Important Election

From Blog08

The most potent election,
The most vital selection.
Was not held this November.
No, before you remember
The Lord set apart
His own for his heart.
Now give ear to his voice
And confirm his own choice.
Turn now from all sin.
Trust Jesus. Begin
To serve him alone...
This King who's enthroned
And coming to reign.
All praise to His Name!

...he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will...
--Ephesians 1:4-5

Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure...
--2 Peter 1:10
