Irresistible Grace

Am preaching on Irresistible Grace, or Effectual Calling in a month or so. It's part of a series going through the 5 points of Calvinism, TULIP style. Have started thinking (and a little reading of Dabney) and have had many thoughts on how I might explore the topic.

Some possibilities:

  • in contrast to a more general work of grace that merely enables us to respond to salvation;
  • exploring the question of whether we can be saved without any evidence of change in our lives;
  • addressing the question of "why bother evangelising if God elects".

Not sure which I want to choose. And especially how best to structure the sermon.
