THE LAST step of salvation reads this way: “Whom He justified, these He also glorified.” – Romans 8:30. This brings us to the history of Joseph. Joseph, despised, cast into a pit, sold for twenty pieces of silver into the hands of the heathen, and is carted off to Egypt. There he is eventually exalted at the right hand of the king and glorified exceedingly.
Beginning, then, with God’s eternal, sovereign purpose in Abraham, and ending with glorification in Joseph, we have predestination, calling, justification and glorification. It is no wonder that Paul continues in Romans:
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” – Romans 8:31-32.
What God begins He will surely finish.
Then Paul continues with an interesting verse:
“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.” – Romans 8:33.
