Freeness of Grace

"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 Spurgeon

Our hope comes from the freeness of His grace, not from our own choices of the will. May you carry the love of God to all today, and present to them the truth, that the Master will lay hold of them. As we do so, let us not shrink back from the task, though none respond. Our obedience to the Master is our reward, and His hand the hand that makes success.
Moving toward the Horizon,
