And I Quote… April 18

The kingdom of God turns the Darwinist narrative of the survival of the fittest upside down. When the church honors and cares for the vulnerable among us, we are not showing charity. We are simply recognizing the way the world really works, at least in the long run. The child with Down syndrome on the…

Jesus propitiated the holy wrath of God against our sin by suffering the full penalty for it in our place. Jesus does not argue our worthiness, He argues His substitution. We may not be worthy to be forgiven, but He is worthy to forgive us. J. D. Greear, Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart: How…

But yet it is evident, that religion consists so much in the affections, as that without holy affection there is no true religion.

The only god they trust in is themselves. When believers throw their worries upon God, they express their trust in his mighty hand, acknowledging that…

And I Quote—February 22

You can think too highly of your interpretations of Scripture, but you cannot think too highly of Scripture’s interpretation of itself. You can exaggerate your authority in handling the Scriptures, but you cannot exaggerate the Scriptures’ authority to handle you.

Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person’s seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend upon it, you will…
