Friends: May our Lord, who has blessed us with salvation in Christ help us to better understand ‘Of Effectual Calling’. We have encouragement and clear teaching from the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 about this: “Elect infants dying in infancy are regenerated and saved by Christ through the Spirit;”-we personally believe that God saves all infants that die in infancy in His super-abundant grace-“who worketh when, and where, and how He pleaseth; so also are all other elect persons, who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word. Others not elected, although they may be called by the ministry of the Word, and may have some common operations of the Spirit, yet not being effectively drawn by the Father, they neither will nor truly come to Christ, and therefore cannot be saved: much less can men that receive not the Christian religion be saved; be they never so diligent to frame their lives according to the light of nature and the law of that religion they do profess.”
Edited from Operation World Seventh Edition, please pray for the Ugandan Church:
“Major ministry challenges for the Ugandan Church:
a.) Young people’s ministry is fundamental to rebuilding the country in the wake of AIDS and the LRA devastation. Pray for ministry in schools, on university/tertiary campuses; evangelism, discipleship and training. Pray for effective youth programs in churches.”
