God chooses to save His people not based on who they are or what they’ve done but on the good pleasure of His gracious will. Today, R.C. Sproul shows how the doctrine of unconditional election gives all glory to God in our redemption.
The Reformed faith teaches the doctrine not only of election, but of unconditional election—meaning that the electing grace that God gives to those whom He saves is not based upon some condition that He sees in them, but it is sovereignly based in the good pleasure of God’s will. And even though He assigns the mediating necessity of faith, what He does is that He acts to meet the condition for His own people. God makes the condition, but He meets the condition graciously to those who are the objects of His electing grace.
