Why should election frighten you?

"And why should [the doctrine of] election frighten you? If you have chosen Christ, depend upon it he has chosen you. If your tearful eye is looking to him, then his omniscient eye has long looked on you. If your heart loves him, his heart loves you better than you can ever love."

C. H. Spurgeon, Revival Year Sermons, page 49, altering the "thou" pronouns to "you."
