What Is The Purpose Of The Preaching To The Non-Elect?
by Arthur Pink
“It is to be noted that God has other purposes in the preaching of the Gospel than the salvation of His own elect. The world exists for the elect’s sake yet others have the benefit of it. So the Word is preached for the elect’s sake yet others have the benefit of an external call. The sun shines though blind men see it not. The rain falls… Continue reading

“My soul is of more worth than ten thousand worlds.” – John Flavel
