Spurgeon, "A WILLING PEOPLE AND AN IMMUTABLE LEADER"
The everlasting God exhibits more power in 'turning a sinner
from the error of his ways', than in the creation of a world,
or the sustentation of a universe!
There is no power like it! Should a man command the mighty
waterfalls to congeal and stand in heaps- if they should obey
him, he would not have worked a miracle half so mighty as that
which God works in the heart when he bids the floods of sin to
Could I command Mount Etna with its flames and smoke to
cease its ebullitions and should it at once be still, I had
not worked a deed so mighty as when God speaks to a boiling
heart sending forth fire and smoke, and bids it stay.
God's people are willing in the day of his power, willing to
submit to sovereign grace, to give themselves up into the hands
of the Mediator, to hang simply on his cross for salvation.
