Lecture 10, Preserving Grace (Part 1):
The idea of eternal security acts as a huge stumbling block for many people. When human beings honestly assess their own desires and motives, the wickedness witnessed clearly paints a bleak picture. Yet, this reality makes God’s grace all the more amazing. That He loves and walks alongside His elect despite their shortcomings and rebellions demonstrates His deep love and kindness. Rather than befuddle us, as Dr. Lawson argues in this lesson, this grace should drive us to praise our glorious God for His sovereignty and mercy in salvation. Nothing can snatch us from His hand, no matter how hard we, or others, might struggle to subvert His plan and providence.
