This week’s term: Preservation – The work of God whereby He, by grace, controls and guides all circumstances around and within His elect, which results in their being unquestionably, and without exception, delivered unblamable into His everlasting kingdom. This work is totally of God, always perfect, and never enhanced by human cooperation.
Last week’s term: Adoption – In Biblical terminology it means to be placed as an adult son. We presently enjoy this position by faith through the Spirit of God within us. (Romans 8:15) We shall enjoy it in a fuller sense at the redemption of the body. (Romans 8:22-23)
