DailyTheocentrism: If salvific election were not sure, it would have been possible that Christ die for no one. – JI Packer

How absurd it is to leave such movements of reality, yea THE MAIN EVENT  of the Gospel, into the hands of men.

To have a fuller version of this, read J.I. Packer’s introduction in Death of Deaths by John Owen.

“Salvific” – the adjective form of salvation (just in case) 🙂

DailyTheocentrism: The Image of God – maybe Anselm was right, only he lacked the perspective of Grace.

Think about it . . .

DailyTheocentrism: Deut. 29:29 – the arrogant search for the things that cannot be known at the cost of the things that can.

God has even set the boundaries of the mind. Want to know the will of God? It is already revealed. To quote another, “95% in the Scriptures – get the 95% right and the 5% will be no problem.”

We’ve never been able to know anything fully, but we can know it truly.

DailyTheocentrism: A command to delight always must be coupled with always delightfulness

That is why we can only fully delight in God.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

(NASB, Php 4:4)

DailyTheocentrism: On the Cross, Jesus kept it (all) together [Acts 18:28; Col. 1:17]

It can truly be said, that while Christ was here, holding Himself on the cross, he was holding the molecules of His tormenters and mockers together, while he was holding the breath in their lungs that they used to hurl insults at him, while He was holding the planet on its axis, while He was holding the universe together, while He was holding the galaxy in place, while He was . . .

Might and grace – may I never forget.
