God used his free will to chose(predestinate) Abraham and the Jews for family of
the Messiah. "To affirm free will[agency]is to compromise Grace" Martin Luther
for good to them that love God,to them who are called according to his purpose.
For who he did foreknow,he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of
His Son." (Romans 8:28,29)Moral image of his Son,not physical image.
What a wonderful perspective of what is expected of us as follower of Christ.
