We cannot say we were elected just to have the honor. We are elected to do a job, and if we make the focus of election simply our salvation and nothing more, we have humanism and not the Gospel. We then also have, according to John 15:6, the certainty of judgment, of being cast into the fire of judgment, and reprobation. We are elected to an office of God’s choosing, and we are accountable to him.
