    • John
      • John 10
    • Romans
      • Romans 8:29

          • And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.
          • For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.
          • And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.…
      • Romans 9:13
        • As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

5. How can we explain the law and preach the gospel today? (21:10)

  1. John MacArthur
    • Sinner
      • When it comes to the sinner, the only ally you have is the Law
        • If he knows the Law
          • You have the law of God written
        • If he does know the Law
          • You have the Law of God in his heart ( Roman 2 )
          • Law of God in the Heart is activated by his conscience which either accusses or excuses
        • Conscience given by God

 

9. Since God is love and love does not seek its own, how do we reconcile that with God doing everything for His own pleasure? (41:06)

  1. John MacArthur
    • His love sought us
    • He found pleasure in our eternal pleasure and reconciliation with him
