The primary work of each divine Person in the salvation of sinners is often remembered through the following three rhyming words:

    1. Thought by God the Father in heaven.

    2. Bought by God the Son on earth.

    3. Wrought (worked) by God the Holy Spirit in the hearts of the saved.

What would happen to the entire human race if God the Holy Spirit did not apply salvation to the hearts of elected sinners?


Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.

- I Peter 1:2a
