Our condition after learning of unconditional election

The doctrine of unconditional election, when held firmly next to the doctrine of total depravity as it should be, can do nothing but promote humility in the object of God’s election. When we see that we WERE dead in trespasses and sins and it’s simply by God’s electing grace that we are made alive, we react not like the Pharisee in Luke 18 who says, “I’m Glad I’m not like other men” but rather like the Nebuchadnezzar who said, “and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?”
