Systematic Theology, Day 5

“Though Christ effectually save none but His Elect (Eph. 5:23). He is by Divine Appointment, grant, and office the Savior of the World, fit for all sinful men, and to whom they are all warrented by God to apply for salvation (John 4:42, 1 John 4:14). His salvation is a common salvation (Jude 3) and his gospel is grace, which bringeth salvation in offer to all men that hear it (Titus 2:11, 1 Tim 1:15). If Christ’s administration of the new covenant were not thus general and indefinite, some men would have no more warrant to hear the Gospel, or believe in and receive him for their salvation, than devils have, contrary to Mark 16:15-16. ” –John Brown of Haddington, Systematic Theology pg.  244
