The conversion and salvation of sinners is owing entirely to the sovereign mercy of God! It is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs — because sinners always will wrong, and always run wrong.
— Asahel Nettleton
When God converts and saves a sinner, it is a wonderful and unspeakable manifestation of divine love. When a poor lost soul is brought home to Christ, and has all his sins forgiven him, and is made a child of God, it will take up a whole eternity to express and declare the greatness of that love.
— Jonathan Edwards
