Spurgeon Quote.

Posted: July 11, 2008 in General Discussion

I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, “You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.” My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of the will.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

    That is a great quote. There is no free will!!! God is the one that does the calling. Too bad there are not more preachers today entering the pullpit with the same humble attitude.

    It has been awhile since I have been on your sight, but I agree with Mistie. Why would we ever rely on a sinful, wrathful, disobedient child, to the God of Abraham, Issaac and Jacob, who are dead in their sins, to awaken their selves and choose to serve and believe on their enemy ,God? Our hope should rest in the fact that a sovereign God will, by the Word that is power because he is all powerful, bend the knees, soften the heart and sprout the seed to conform His elect to the purpose that He has created them for, and that is for His glory, by His Grace!
