Human Inability

Well, it’s Monday! – and normally that would mean a little something from Matthew Henry. However, I have decided to share with you a classic essay from another one of my favorites – Charles Spurgeon. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him. John 6:44 “Coming to Christ” is a very common phrase in Holy Scripture.
