Freedom & Control

Currently I'm preaching through Romans. I just preached Romans 9 today. It's about God's selection of Israel as His chosen people. It's about God's sovereignty.

God's sovereignty & Human Responsibility. While Spurgeon says he doesn't try to "reconcile friends", many others have tried to.

Tonight I was watching a message by Louie Giglio called, "Hope When Life Hurts Most" (part 1). In it Louie gracefully handles this tension by saying,
God allows freedom but He maintains control.
Well-said, Louie. May we live this out gracefully as well.
