"Without God man has no reference point to define himself."
"The house that is built upon the sand will crumble at the first sign of a windstorm."
"Most Christian's salute the sovereignty of God but believe in the sovereignty of man."
"Every sin is an act of cosmic treason, a futile attempt to dethrone God in His sovereign authority."
"Isn't is amazing that almost everyone has an opinion to offer about the Bible, and yet so few have studied it."
"Humanism was not invented by man, but by a snake who suggested that the quest for autonomy might be a good idea."
"If there is one maverick molecule in all the universe, then God is not sovereign. And if God is not sovereign, He is not God."
"The lordship of Jesus is not simply a hope of Christians that someday might be realized; it is a truth that has already taken place."
"In the Scriptures we see that God creates the universe and owns the universe. It is His possession, and He governs it by His own authority."
"Cynicism and skepticism are the crudest form of quasi-intellectualism... Let the cynic become cynical of his cynicism and the skeptic skeptical of his skepticism and join the battle."
"God just doesn't throw a life preserver to a drowning person. He goes to the bottom of the sea, and pulls a corpse from the bottom of the sea, takes him up on the bank, breathes into him the breath of life and makes him alive."
"Here, then, is the
real problem of our negligence. We fail in our duty to study God's Word
not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because
it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not a lack
of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy."
"He is intangible and invisible. But His work is more powerful than the most ferocious wind. The Spirit brings order out of chaos and beauty out of ugliness. He can transform a sin-blistered man into a paragon of virtue. The Spirit changes people. The Author of life is also the Transformer of life."
"We do not segment our lives, giving some time to God, some to our business or schooling, while keeping parts to ourselves. The idea is to live all of our lives in the presence of God, under the authority of God, and for the honour and glory of God. That is what the Christian life is all about."
"Loving a holy God is beyond our moral power. The only kind of God we can love by our sinful nature is an unholy god, an idol made by our own hands. Unless we are born of the Spirit of God, unless God sheds His holy love in our hearts, unless He stoops in His grace to change our hearts, we will not love Him... To love a holy God requires grace, grace strong enough to pierce our hardened hearts and awaken our moribound souls."
