Bunyan (d.1688) believed:

"This act of God in electing is a choosing or fore-appointing of some infallibly unto eternal life. Election according to God's good pleasure is: (1) eternal, having been executed before the foundation of the world, (2) unconditional, being totally independent or foreseen faith or good works, and (3) effectual, in that no impediment can hinder the realization of God's purposes. Finally, (4) election is "in Christ," since the Savior is the one in whom the elect were always considered and without whom there is neither election, grace, nor salvation."

Praise God for our Sovereign God!

(From Bruce Demarest, The Cross and Salvation, 110).
