God's Sovereignty In The Salvation Of Men (Romans 9:18)

If you haven't read this sermon by Jonathan Edwards, then you're missing out. A great exposition of the text and a great defense of election.

Here's an excerpt:

Let us, therefore, labour to submit to the sovereignty of God. God insists, that his sovereignty be acknowledged by us, and that even in this great matter, a matter which so nearly and infinitely concerns us, as our own eternal salvation. This is the stumbling-block on which thousands fall and perish; and if we go on contending with God about his sovereignty, it will be our eternal ruin. It is absolutely necessary that we should submit to God, as our absolute sovereign, and the sovereign over our souls; as one who may have mercy on whom he will have mercy, and harden whom he will
