<017> [Note: This session was required because the first half of these notes took more time than the normal notes require.] Thesis: Hope is built upon commitments God has made and revealed to those to whom He wishes to give hope. Introduction: In our first study of this thesis, we saw that Luke and Peter held concepts of "election" that impose two notions: first, that God's "election" is irresistably effectual (He does not take "no" for an answer); and, second, that one's personal knowledge of his/her own "election" is critical to a life of faith, love, and (perhaps most importantly) hope.
