Providence Efficacy - IX

"But Scripture regularly teaches that when God elects, calls, and regenerates someone in Christ, through the Spirit, that work accomplishes his saving purpose.  When God gives his people a new heart, it is certain that they will 'walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them' (Ezek 11:20).  When God gives new life (John 5:21), we cannot send it back to him.  Jesus said, 'All that the Father gives me will come to me' (John 6:37).  If God foreknows (i.e. befriends) someone, he will certainly predestine him to be conformed to the likeness of Christ, to be called, to be justified, to be glorified in heaven (Rom 8:29-30)." - Frame, ST, p145.
