Election is Not Driven by Works

Since election is not driven by works it can only be attributed to God’s saving grace; or to the glory of God. John Calvin writes,

We shall never be clearly convinced as we ought to be, that our salvation flows from the fountain of God’s free mercy, till we are acquainted with his eternal election, which illustrates the grace of God by this comparison, that he adopts all promiscuously to the hope of salvation but gives to some what he refuses others.”
