This Week's Quote - Charles Spurgeon

“Mark this, then – either the saints must persevere to the end, or else the Grace of God has effectually done nothing for them. If they do not continue to be saints and to exercise a saintly influence, there is no hope for them! There cannot be two new births for the same person. If the Divine work has failed once, it will never be begun again. If they have really been saved, if they have been made the children of God and if it is possible for them to lose the Grace which they have received, they can never have it again. The Word of God is very emphatic upon that point – ‘If they shall fall away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance.’ Falling may be retrieved, but falling away can never be.”
