The Stumbling Block On Which Thousands Fall and Perish

The Stumbling Block On Which Thousands Fall and Perish

What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory. - Rom 9:22-23

    The sovereignty of God is the stumbling block on which thousands fall and perish; and if we go contending with God about His sovereignty it will be our eternal ruin. It is absolutely necessary that we should submit to God as an absolute Sovereign, and the Sovereign of our souls; as one who may have mercy on whom He will have mercy and harden whom He will.
