Quote of the Day

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Cor 5:17 (KJV)

“My brethren, it was more difficult, if such terms are ever applicable to Omnipotence, it was more difficult to create a Christian than to create a world.  What was there to begin with when God made the world?  There was nothing; but nothing could not stand in God’s way – it was at least passive.  But, my brethren, in our hearts, while there was nothing that could help God, there was much that could and did oppose him.  Our stubborn wills, our deep prejudices, our ingrained love of iniquity, all these, great God, opposed thee, and aimed at thwarting thy designs . . . Yes, great God, it was great to make a world, but greater to create a new creature in Jesus Christ.” (Spurgeon)
