II. The visible Church, which is also catholic or universal under the gospel (not confined to one nation as before under the law) consists of all those, throughout the world, that profess the true religion,a and of their children;b and is the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ,c the house and family of God,d out of which there is no ordinary possibility of salvation.e

VIII. To all those for whom Christ hath purchased redemption he doth certainly and effectually apply and communicate the same;a making intercession for them,b and revealing unto them, in and by the Word, the mysteries of salvation;c effectually persuading them by his Spirit to believe and obey; and governing their hearts by his Word and Spirit;d overcoming all their enemies by his almighty power and wisdom, in such manner and ways as are most consonant to his wonderful and unsearchable dispensation.e

The Westminster Confession of Faith 3.8

VIII. The doctrine of this high mystery of predestination is to be handled with special prudence and care,a that men attending the will of God revealed in his Word, and yielding obedience thereunto, may, from the certainty of their effectual vocation, be assured of their eternal election.b So shall this doctrine afford matter of praise, reverence, and admiration of God;and of humility, diligence, and abundant consolation to all that sincerely obey the gospel.d

Daily Prayer for September 15, 2022

Prayer: Our God who loves to forgive sin, we thank you and praise you for opening our eyes to the truth of the Gospel and the work of your beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Though nothing is lovely in us and left to ourselves, we are a people to be pitied and judged for our sins. You, a God of love, are determined to prove it by being willing to crush your Son for our sake. This, he gladly undertook for the sake of those he came to redeem. Your Word tells us that you love the world, the redeemed born from above and given the eyes to see and believe. Yet, many that we know and love have not been given the eyes to see or the ears to hear. Therefore, holy Father, we appeal to your goodness and mercy to bring them to a saving understanding of the Gospel. We plead with you for your great work of redemption to be wrought in the lives of those still lost in their sins. Father, we know that you delight in the forgiveness of sin. We know that you are sovereign and must do this work, or it will not happen. Therefore, we appeal to you, the only One who can rescue men from their misery. Please help them, we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
