Proverbs
Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:3-4

The Word
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:16-18

The Need for Grace Does Away with Free Will Altogether

C.H. Spurgeon

“Free-will or Free-grace?; The Bible says that men are born again, not of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:13); that it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy (Rom 9:16); the work of faith is the operation of God according to the exceeding greatness of his power, who works in man both to will and to do of his own good pleasure.” (Phil 2:13)

“Free will I have often heard of, but I have never seen it. I have always met with will, and plenty of it, but it has either been led captive by sin or held in the blessed bonds of grace.”
- C. H. Spurgeon

    “I have always met with will, and plenty of it, but it has either been led captive by sin or held in the blessed bonds of grace.” And that takes care of that!! Thanks John, always a joy to read Spurgeon’s wit combined with the truth of the gospel. Not of him who wills, but of Thee, amen. Lord bless you and the team, here at Aletheuo.

      “always a joy to read Spurgeon’s wit combined with the truth of the gospel”

      I totally agree with you Jo, I find myself wincing and chuckling at the same time when I read Spurgeon having a pop at those who contradict the truth of God’s word. :)

      May the Lord bless you too.

      John.
