The favorite word of some children is “Why?” They can drive you crazy as you try to explain the explainable. Trying to explain free agency and God’s sovereignty will also drive you round the bend. Today’s devotional should be sufficient warning. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Acts 2:23 English Standard Version (ESV)
23 this Jesus,[a] delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men.
“I never yet pretended to explain how free agency and absolute predestination can both be true; but I am sure that they are both true, both written in Scripture, and both facts. To reconcile them, is no business of mine or yours; but to admire how they are reconciled in fact, is a business of yours and mine, and therefore let us do so now.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIII, (1897), p. 296]
