John 10:11 11 "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

John 3:14-16 14 "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. 16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Michael Horton wisely states:
"When reformed theology hears Scripture teaching both divine sovereignty and human responsibility, divine election and the universal offer of the gospel, it affirms both even though it confesses that it does not know quite how God coordinates them behind the scenes" (Introducing Covenant Theology [Baker, 2006], 19).

I love 2 Tim 2:10 on this point. Paul says he endures all things for the sake of those who are chosen.

This has to be one of the greatest mission verses of all Scripture.

Love
