Spurgeon quote for the day! 5-26-11

“O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 7:24, 25.

"The wretchedness of Paul, I think, lay in two things which are enough to make any man wretched. Paul believed the Doctrine of Human Responsibility and yet he felt the Doctrine of Human Inability. I have heard people ask sometimes— “You tell the sinner that he cannot believe and repent without the help of the Holy Spirit. And yet you tell him that it is his duty to believe and repent! How are these two to be reconciled?” We reply that they do not need any reconciliation. They are two Truths of Holy Scripture and we leave them to reconcile themselves—they are friends and friends do not need any reconciliation!"
