The Threefold Purpose
A Sermon on Romans 8:28-30
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. (ESV)
Consideration of Hebrews 6:4-8 and 10:26-29; difficult expressions explained; extraordinary experiences without regeneration; denial of the gospel; the threefold purpose of the warning passages.
