Election: Watson On Election Not Being Conditioned Upon Us

“It is absurd to think that anything in us could have the least influence upon our election. Some say that God foresaw that such persons would believe, and therefore chose them; so they would make the business of salvation to depend upon something in us. Whereas God does not choose us for faith—but to faith. “He has chosen us, that we should be holy” (Ephesians 1:4), not because we would be holy—but that we might be holy. We are elected to holiness, not for it.”

Thomas Watson
