Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

If no soul is saved except through God's purpose and work, according to this purpose, no soul is lost except by man's own preference for sin.  Every resistance of offered grace, every inability to respond to God's call, all apathy with respect to spiritual things, comes from man's own powers, and not from God's purposes. -- Henry Eyster Jacobs, *Elements* p. 71.
