Not a World of Chance

This is not a world of chance, it is our Father's world! Events do not happen without divine order and direction. There is a great divine plan running through the ages which includes all things, and subordinates all forces and all experiences to itself. Our Scripture passages above are full of this great thought.

We will never fully understand these great truths, with their tremendous reach of meaning. We may say, however, at least, that they assure us of a divine plan for the elect, a divine love, a divine purpose of mercy, dating from the infinite past, and running through the eternal ages to come!

All of the elect are eternally secure in Christ the Redeemer!
