The Freedom Of The Will And Predestination
The grace of God constrains men to become Christians, and yet only constrains them consistently with the laws of their mind. The freedom of the will is as great a truth as the predestination of God. The grace of God, without violating our wills, makes men willing in the day of God’s power, and they give themselves to Jesus Christ. You cannot be a Christian against your will. How could it be? A servant of God against his will! A child of God against his will! Nay, it never was so, and it never shall be so.
