Effectual Grace - Thursday

The Holy Spirit Saves

Scripture shows that each member of the Trinity is involved in the work of salvation. The dispensing of efficacious grace (grace that has an effect) is the work of the Spirit. This is sometimes known as "the Holy Spirit's call" and the famous TULIP version is "Irresistible Grace."

Effectual Grace from the text of Scripture

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
Romans 8:14

For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
1 Corinthians 2:10–13
