Made Willing

"God saves no man to his harm. And God saves none against his will. Grace makes the sinner willing. It is a secret exercise of omnipotence on the hidden man of the heart coaxing and alluring him to salvation and glory by Christ. It is always effectual but it is never brute strength."

— Maurice Roberts, The Thought of God (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1993), page 21
