Chapter 3: Of God’s Eternal Decree

8: The doctrine of this high mystery of predestination is to be handled with special prudence and care,[81] that men, attending the will of God revealed in His Word, and yielding obedience thereunto, may, from the certainty of their effectual vocation, be assured of their eternal election.[82] So shall this doctrine afford matter of praise, reverence, and admiration of God;[83] and of humility, diligence, and abundant consolation to all that sincerely obey the Gospel.[84]

Chapter 3: Of God’s Eternal Decree

6: As God has appointed the elect unto glory, so has He, by the eternal and most free purpose of His will, foreordained all the means thereunto. Wherefore, they who are elected, being fallen in Adam, are redeemed by Christ,[76] are effectually called unto faith in Christ by His Spirit working in due season, are justified, adopted, sanctified,[77] and kept by His power, through faith, unto salvation.[78] Neither are any other redeemed by Christ, effectually called, justified, adopted, sanctified, and saved, but the elect only.[79]
