Good Teaching on Salvation, Election and Assurance

I want to share three current sermons from one of my favorite Reformed pastors.

Pastor Rev. Joghinda Gangar

Graduated in 1984 from Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, CA. He was ordained in the Christian Reformed Church in 1986 and served churches in Calgary and Wellandport in Canada. Since 1998, he has been serving Trinity URC in Walnut Creek. Rev. Gangar was born in Punjab, India, and raised in England. He is married to Sheena and has seven children who ranged in age from 20 years to 6 years.

In February 2004, Rev. Gangar and his brother, also a minister, went on a mission trip to Punjab, their birthplace. This was the first time they had visited Punjab since they left as children 43 years ago. They were enthusiastically received and held three evangelistic meetings, each with about 300 present. Rev. Gangar desires to see this opportunity for missions continue and grow since the people seem to be open to the gospel.

These sermons teach from the Bible and the Canons of Dort on the topic of “how the elect come to eternity….teaching about Irresistible Grace, and the work of the Holy Spirit”.

If you have never studied this topic you might find it interesting.

There is some repetition in the sermons, but I find that helpful in reinforcing the text.

You might also find two recent blog posts on the subject of our assurance of faith and salvation to be useful. This first one also discusses John Bunyan’s experiences. Both Spurgeon and Bunyan are useful examples.

The wind blows where it will

I was years and years upon the brink of hell—I mean in my own feeling. I was unhappy, I was desponding, I was despairing. I dreamed of hell. My life was full of sorrow and wretchedness, believing that I was lost. ~ Charles Spurgeon as a teenager

Charles Spurgeon’s torments in wanting to be saved are well-known. Spurgeon knew he needed salvation because of his sins, but also knew he couldn’t decide to save himself. He needed the external specific call.
