Jonathan Edwards on Irresistible Grace

Jonathan Edwards on Irresistible Grace February 16, 2009

The shocking nature of the doctrine that God’s grace is irresistible was hammered home to me by this quote. If this notion does not make you grateful to God that YOU should be so blessed by him, I don’t know what will.

. . .the Calvinistical notion of sovereign and arbitrary grace, whereby some, with the very same sincerity of endeavors and the same degree of endeavors and the same use of means, shall have the success which is denied others; and although all things are exactly equal in both cases, both as to their persons and their behavior, yet one has that success by sovereign grace and God’s arbitrary pleasure that is denied another – Jonathan Edwards [1740], Writings on the Trinity, Grace, and Faith (WJE Online Vol. 21) , Ed. Sang Hyun Lee, page 210
