Five Points (Les cinq points du calvinisme)
What is grace? It is God who delights in doing us good when we least deserve it. But do we really know how unworthy we are? Only God can reveal it to us and he does it through the Bible. And when this revelation appears, the wonders of his grace shine with a brilliance we have never seen before.
The five points of Calvinism describe how Christians are saved and why they are preserved eternally. This doctrine takes us back to the time when we were freely chosen. It propels us into the future, where we will be happy and secure forever. It searches the mysteries of the work of Christ, who acquired the gift of faith for all of God's children. It penetrates the human soul, allowing it to glimpse the mysteries of the work accomplished by the Spirit, as he obtains the complete victory over our rebellion and makes us the voluntary captives of Jesus, the King.
John Piper believes that our experience of grace deepens as our understanding of God's work of grace deepens. He invites us to join him in this quest.
John Piper is Honorary Pastor and author of numerous books including This Ephemeral Marriage and May the Nations Rejoice! He has been married at Christmas for almost 50 years. They have five children and twelve grandchildren.
