    No Partiality with God

    God chose Jacob in the same way that He does everybody else. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ; according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” 3Ephesians 1:3, 4. We are chosen in Christ. And since all things were created in Christ, and in Him all things consist, it is evident that we are not required to get ourselves into Christ, but only to acknowledge Him, and abide in Him by faith. There was no more partiality in the choice of Jacob before he was born than there is in the choice of all others. The choice is not arbitrary, but in Christ, and if none rejected and spurned Christ, none would be lost.EVCO 135.2

    “How rich the grace! the gift how free!
    ‘Tis only ‘ask’—it shall be given;
    ‘Tis only ‘knock’ and thou shalt see
    The opening door that leads to heaven.
    O then arise, and take the good,
    So full and freely proffered thee,
    Remembering that it cost the blood
    Of Him who died on Calvary.”
    EVCO 136.1
