The sovereignty of God is the single most glorious reality about God. Even His grace would lose its luster if He weren't really in control of it. His mercy would be diminished. There’s a third thing Paul understood. He understood divine sovereignty, he understood human responsibility, and thirdly, he understood evangelical duty, evangelical duty.
