Edwards on Sovereign Grace

"From my childhood up, my mind had been full of objections to the doctrine of God's sovereignty, in choosing whom He would to eternal life; and rejecting whom He pleased. . . . But I have often, since that first conviction, had quite another kind of sense of God's sovereignty than I had then. I have often since had not only a conviction, but a delightful conviction. The doctrine has very often appeared exceedingly bright and sweet. Absolute sovereignty is what I love to ascribe to God. . . . And wherever the doctrines of God's sovereignty with regard to salvation of sinners were preached, there with it God sent revival."
-Jonathan Edwards
