It cannot be too strongly noted that the only evidence of a person’s being one of God’s elect is when he lives a godly life and so brings forth the fruits of righteousness.  Election makes men saints, not mere religious talkers, learned hypocrites, or adherents of some religious group.

From: Family Worship Bible Guide, Joel R. Beeke, general editor (Grand Rapids: Reformation Heritage Books, 2016), p. 798 (note #2 for 1 Thessalonians 1).
