REGENERATION AND SELF DENIAL

“God absolutely interposes in the salvation of every man to make him regenerate. In the salvation of every person there is an actual putting forth of divine power, where by the dead sinner is quickened, the unwilling sinner is made willing, the desperately hard sinner has his conscience made tender; and he who rejected God and despised Christ, is brought to cast himself down at the feet of Jesus. There must be a divine interposition, a divine working, a divine influence, or else, do what you may, without that you perish, and are undone; “for except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”This change is radical–it gives us new natures, it makes us love what we hated and hate what we loved, it sets us on a new road; it makes our habits different, it makes our thoughts different, it makes us different in private, and different in public. “If any man be in Christ he is a new creature;old things are passed away, behold all things are become new.” (Spurgeon’s sermon, “Regeneration”)
