Hey guys, as a Bible teacher was I: 1. Saved (1999) drew to repentance (2004) because God wanted me to teach his Word (Romans 8:28-according to his purpose)? 2. Do I teach His Word only because my former pastor thought I had the ability to do a good job? 3. Not saved to teach, but God purposed me to teach BECAUSE I AM SAVED, and if I wasn't saved or was out of fellowship with God, He would have someone else do the job? (of course He always has someone to do His work.) I have been studying Reformed Theology/Doctrines of Grace and election. I do not believe in predestination, but I am trying to figure the correct order of things. I have said before "that I appreciate the Lord allowing me to do His work," but as I have been studying sovereignty I began to wonder how this all happens. Thank you, and I pray the Lord's blessings according to His will on all of you.
