Why I Believe

We read in the last part of Acts 13:48, “…all who were appointed for eternal life believed.”

The verse emphasizes to me that if God chose me before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless and predestined me to be adopted as one of his sons, then He will really work in me that I may believe. I believe because He has appointed me for eternal life!

Because of the said verse, I realize more that faith is indeed a gift from God. He gives it freely to those He chose before the creation of the world.

To say that you believe you were appointed before the creation of the world is also to say that some were NOT APPOINTED that way. but it does not also say that appointing has ended when God started to make the universe. It is possible that God still appoints now. The problem is, can one resist the appointment of God? Of course if He decides to prevent you He can. Equally, he can allow you also to reject Him and there you go to the lake of fire - even if you were appointed long time ago.
