The Glory of our Salvation - Dr. Willie Marais

Everyone who reads this book will come to know four things:

- He will know if he has already been saved (cf. John 1:12-13; 1John 5:12-13).
- He will know that he has only himself to blame if he goes lost for all eternity (cf. Acts 18:6).
- He will know that if he comes to the Lord (cf. Matt. 11:28) he will be saved (John 6:37; Acts 16:31).
- He will know that both the sovereignty of God (Rom. 9:16) and the responsibility of man (cf. Heb. 2:3; Rev. 22:17; John 6:37) are taught as realities in the Scriptures (cf. Phil. 2:12-13), and to fully understand these two truths in perfect harmony with each other is too complex for us: “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the things of the Law” (Deut.29:29).

    For some, the reading of this book will lead to their salvation. For others, it will renew their knowledge and understanding of their own salvation, urging them to renew their commitment to the Lord. For ministers it can serve as a refresher course on the doctrine of Soteriology.

    The Glory of our Salvation is the work of God in us - let all the glory 
    be to God forever!
