God’s choice of believers

A favorite Spurgeon quotation, from book two of his Lectures to My Students, is about the doctrine of election. Spurgeon says,
“I believe the doctrine of election, because I am quite sure that if God had not chosen me I should never have chosen him; and I am sure he chose me before I was born, or else he never would have chosen me afterwards; and he must have elected me for reasons unknown to me, for I never could find any reason in myself why he should have looked upon me with special love. So I am forced to accept that doctrine”

Nevertheless, we can confidently say with the OT and the NT: Seek the Lord while He may be found, for all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved!

yours by divine mercy,
Pastor David
