In this message, we examine many of these exhortations in Scripture to make our calling and election sure, understanding that in offering this petition in the Lord’s prayer, one thing we are praying is that we may persevere and grow in grace as members of God’s kingdom.

We see that salvation is by grace through faith alone but that there will be the fruit of good works in the lives of those who are true believers. Finally, in the midst of the injunctions to persevere and strive and struggle to be more like Christ, we are encouraged to realize that He will give us the grace that we need to do these things if indeed we are believers.
