Salvation according to the Gospel of John;



All that the Father has chosen to be His,


He has given to the Son (17:6);


and all Whom He has given to the Son,


the Son knows (10:14)


and calls (10:3);


and all Whom He calls, know Him (10:14)


and recognize His voice (10:4-5)


and come to Him (6:37)


and follow Him (10:27);


and the Son lays down His life for the sheep (10:11, 15);


and to all for whom He dies He gives eternal life (10:28)


and keeps them in the Father’s Word (17:6),


so that none is lost (6:39)


or snatched out of His hand (10:28),


but is raised up at the last day (6:39)


to glorify the Son forever (17:10).


This is why the Father has pleasure in election.


It is the indestructable foundation


for an infallible salvation


that redounds in the end


to the glory of


the Father and Son.



The Pleasures of God


John Piper
