How unworthy is it for dust and ashes, kneaded together in time, to strut against the Father of eternity! Much more unworthy for that which is nothing, worse than nothing, to quarrel with that which is only being, and equal himself with him that inhabits eternity.
God is the most simple being; for that which is first in nature, having nothing beyond it, cannot by any means be thought to be compounded.
It is impossible to honour God as we ought, unless we know him as he is.
Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude—an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God.
Arthur W Pink
True liberty is not the power to live as we please, but to live as we ought!
Arthur W Pink
Jesus Christ came not to make us scholars in naturals, but to endue us with such a knowledge as is in order to eternal happiness, and with such a renewing principle as might make us capable of heaven.
The whole work of regeneration, and conversion, and sanctification, and the efficacy of the death of Christ in the soul, consists in these two things: a taking us off from self, and pitching us upon God and Christ as our end. The terminus a quo is self, the terminus ad quem is Christ.
Salvation then, according to the Bible, is not something that was discovered, but something that happened.
J. G. Machens
Let us delight in the knowledge of Christ crucified, and be often in the thoughts and study of him. Study Christ, not only as living, but dying; not as breathing in our air, but suffering in our stead; know him as a victim, which is the way to know him as a conqueror. Christ as crucified is the great object of faith.
Theology has two parts: the first, of God; the second, of His works.
