Question of the Will

Source Name: 
Divine Sovereignty and Human Freedom (p. 13)

"F. B. Meyer, the British Baptist whose books have blessed multitudes, gave full credit and glory to God, yet he did not neglect the human side. He is on record as saying: ‘ "Wilt thou be made whole?" [John 5:6] The whole question turns on the attitude of the will. And it is for lack of realizing this that many grope for years in darkness, who might otherwise walk in the light of life… His [God’s] one complaint against us is that we are not willing. "Ye will not come unto me, that ye might have life." [John 5:40] "If any man will come after me." [Luke 9:23] "I would…but ye would not." [Matthew 23:37] "If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land." [Isaiah 1:19]… His one prime concern is the will. What willest thou? Wilt thou be saved? The question of salvation is a moral one; it hinges on the will… The initial step of salvation is our willingness to be saved.’ (Emphasis his. Christian Living, pp.85,89-90,94)"
