Reflection

  • "One important way we can measure the depth of the Holy Spirit’s work is by the extent of our mourning for sin and fear of God."
  • "It is idolatry to serve others without reference to the glory of God."
  • "We become helpful to this world to the degree that we die to it and live for the glory of God."
  • "The cross message synthesizes the Bible’s divergent statements about God into one consistent message that satisfies even the most demanding intellect."
  • "If you have never been deeply scandalized and offended by the cross, you may have never really heard its message."
