God’s Sovereign Goodness


“Divine sovereignty is not the sovereignty of a tyrannical Despot, but the exercised pleasure of One who is infinitely wise and good! Because God is infinitely wise He cannot err, and because He is infinitely righteous He will not do wrong. Here then is the preciousness of this truth. The mere fact itself that God’s will is irresistible and irreversible fills me with fear, but once I realize that God wills only that which is good, my heart is made to rejoice.”

—A.W. Pink (1886-1952)

  1. Arthur Pink is the man. He always know how to nail the most profound truths with the fewest words. (The true mark of a great writer!) The more we understand about this all Sovereign God we adore the harder it becomes to understand how Arminianism has thrived so heartily over the past 150 yrs. Well, on the hand, perhaps it’s not so difficult to understand when we consider that the teaching dethrones God and places man in the drivers seat. Oh…. how we need more Corky Velveetas in this world.
