Lets consider that God choosing you or me as a specific individual for salvation, occurs during our lifetime and His choice is based on God accepting our love and commitment to Christ as sufficient for His purpose. What scriptures teach this conditional election view? James 2:5 indicates that God chooses the poor based on the world’s value system, but rich in faith according to God’s value system. They are heirs of the kingdom, which He promised to those who love Him. Clearly no matter whether the choice is made during the lifetime of the individual, or based on the foreseen condition of the individual, the choice is based on the characteristics of the individual, someone although having little in the way of material wealth who is “rich” in faith, someone who loves Jesus. Matthew 19:16-26 (the rich young ruler story) indicates that folks must turn loose of all their worldly treasures and trust only in Jesus in order to enter the kingdom of God. Again, clearly teaching that our heart attitude contributes to gaining entrance to the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 indicates that if we hold ourselves in high regard, thinking of ourselves – I am wise, I am educated, my PhD trumps your high school diploma – we are adhering to the wisdom of the world. But through the wisdom of the world, we will not come to know God, verse 21. Instead, if we hold ourselves in low regard, thinking of ourselves – I am foolish, I make mistakes, I am a sinner, helpless to save myself – we are ready to accept the gospel of Christ crucified. Thus again, our heart condition contributes to gaining entrance to the kingdom of God. And God did this, chose folks of humility to shame those who are wise in their own eyes, verses 26-29. Again, clearly teaching that God chooses folks for salvation based at least in part on their heart condition, hence a conditional election.
