Sadly, today there are many so-called teachers who tickle the ears of their listeners using God against His true message. They are quick to congratulate those within hearing that they are super special and they have been extra sensitive or they have been good enough to answer the call of God. They might throw out all kinds of emotional phrases to tell the listener that now that you have been so special as to accepted God, now God will reward you from this point on.

Is that what salvation bestows? Is that the message of the Bible? Pastor John Samuel Barnett presents the message that God saves us by His own choosing for His own glory to carry out the work He has destined for us.
