Project Management Steps:
The "5 Points" as God's "Project":
- God initiates everything (including salvation, because we are totally depraved sinners)
- Unconditional Election is God's plan to save
- Particular Redemption is the execution of the plan
- In the Effectual Call, He guides the outcome of the plan
- The saints Persevere because God Preserves them, bringing the plan to perfect completion
See the parallels? God IS the greatest of all Project Managers.
Ephesians 1:11-12 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.UPDATE: Ralph Petersen's insightful comments on this post can be read HERE.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Romans 8:28-30 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
