It’s been a thrilling ride being part of a book launching team. I’m on my second book launch and it’s amazing to connect with the author. Not only that I get to meet some like minded folks and enjoy the perks of belong to one. But one awesome thing about it is that I can read the book first before any other readers can. So if you want to join one keep your eyes peeled to your favorite author as he or she rolls out his latest releases.

As part of the Humble Calvinism book launch team, enjoy this special treat from Delighting Grace. It’s a collection of quotes from the book authored by Jeff Medders.  Pre-order the book on Amazon or add it to your wish list by clicking this link: https://amzn.to/2LfH2CV

“A head-only grip on unconditional election makes pride and predestination into frenemies. We know pride is a sinister enemy of Christians, but when it comes to disagreements over the doctrines of grace, somehow we welcome pride in as our friend and ally. We need to end our friendship with pride. Frenemies no more.”

“Predestination is the backstory of your faith in Christ. Ephesians 1 reminds us of God’s end goal of election: the praise of his grace.”

Any version of Calvinism that lacks zeal for the lost is a counterfeit. Real Calvinism runs on a Great Commission passion for the glory of God and the joy of all people in Christ the Lord.”

“Believers will not—cannot!—“un-believe.” Will there be doubts? Certainly. Will we sin? Yes. Will there be periods of backsliding into sin and a belittling of God’s grace? Probably. But prodigals eventually come home. Sins that have already been covered by the blood of Jesus cannot be uncovered.”

“Discipleship is about denying ourselves as our own Lord and Savior, picking up our cross of death to self, and following Jesus as Master. And the proof is in perseverance; a continued discipleship with Christ, as new creations in Christ, is God’s will for his saints.”
