Nuggets of Gold...




IS GOD WILLING AND NOT ABLE?

I thoroughly detest that form of preaching which presents God in the Trinity of His Persons as being willing to save but unable to effect that which He wills. It is commonly heard in statements that begin with, "God wants to..." or "God has done all that He can do; now the rest is up to you." Any such statement that puts a question mark of the power and ability of God to accomplish His will in salvation (or anything else) is dishonoring to God, contrary to the Scriptures and of no comfort to poor, needy sinners. It must be regarded as "another gospel!" The message of the gospel that honors God is true to Scriptures and brings joy and hope to a sinner is the soul cheering truth "He is able." (Heb. 7:25).
