Dr. Mark Gignilliat – Election: Objects of God’s Grace

The doctrine of election can be a matter of division among a lot of Christians.

Today's Richard's guest, Dr. Mark Gignilliat, discusses some overlapping and important theological concerns that the Bible itself raises, in terms of what we are as human beings and the necessity of God's grace to enter into our lives and to raise us into new life in Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 12:3 that “no one can say Jesus is Lord” without the animating work of the Holy Spirit.

We cannot say with true sincerity that Jesus is Lord without the work of the Holy Spirit to take that which is dead and to make it alive again. Watch on YouTube
