"It is absurd to think that anything in us could have the least influence upon our election. Some say that God did forsee that such persons would believe, and therefore chose them; so they would make the business of salvation to depend upon something in us. Whereas God does not choose us FOR faith, but TO faith. " He hath chosen us, that we should be holy." (Eph 1:4), not because we would be holy, but that we might be holy. We are elected to holiness, not for it."
