Power to Save the Worst Sinner 3/3/2013The Mission of the Church

As the Gospel is preached, the Spirit works sovereignly to effectually call all those the Father has given to the Son. What a person has been or done makes no difference for all are dead in transgressions and sins. Jesus has the authority to grant new birth and save even the worst sinner. This is graphically demonstrated in the election of Saul, a notoriously wicked murderer of God's people.
