Spurgeon and Election

Charles Spurgeon (Lectures to My Students, book 2 pg. 47)
"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."

I couldn't agree w/ Charles more!

Noah, after knowing you for as long as I do, I would agree with your self-assesment! Just kidding bro!

That is a great Spurgeon quote.
Thanks for sharing it.
