Spurgeon on Christ's Resurrection


In the resurrection of Christ, as in our salvation, nothing short of a divine power was put forth. What shall we say of those who think that conversion is the work of the free will of individuals, and is due to improving one's own disposition? When we can see the dead rise from the grave by their own power, then we can expect to see ungodly sinners of their own free will turning to Christ. It isn't the word preached, nor the word read in itself; all life-giving power proceeds fromt the Holy Spirit. This power was irresistible. All the soldiers and the high priests could not keep the body of Christ in the tomb; death itself could not hold Jesus in its bonds: this is how irresistible the power put forth in the believer is when one is raised to newness of life.
