Standard

Welcome to Delighting Grace new feature called “The Quotable Round Up”. In this feature, we will collect awesome quotes from Christian leaders, authors, preachers, theologians and philosophers that you will love. This will be on a weekly basis and you’ll get the fresh quotes every Tuesday. I hope and pray that you’ll like this feature, share it and come back every week. Pray that I can post more of this.

 

“The Spirit of God indwells the believer and enlightens his or her understanding of what the Word teaches.”
–John MacArthur Jr.

“Saving faith doesn’t come from hearing just any part of the Word. Faith comes by hearing specific truths about Christ’s life, death, burial, and resurrection. It comes by hearing specific challenges that convict us of our own sin and need.”
–John MacArthur Jr.

“God doesn’t want us to swerve away from the hope of the gospel. Churches, ministries, seminaries, parachurch organizations, Sunday school classes, and committed churchgoers can all shift from the center: the hope of the gospel. With all of your might, vigor, resolve, and strength—remain firm in the gospel. Don’t shift.”
–J. A. Medders

“Don’t start thinking that your good works are adding anything to the work of Christ. Don’t start believing that somehow God is going to love you more because of what you are doing or not doing. Cement the truth in your heart that you are fully forgiven for all of your crimes against God because of Jesus. Don’t forget that you are divorced from sin’s power because you are married to Christ.”
–J. A. Medders

“When you shift from the gospel there are four places you can drift into: license, legalism, lukewarmness, or leaving the faith altogether. You may not have a life of rampant sin, but you may have an area of license that is just as sinister. Legalism will take you into self-righteousness and works-based approval. You’ll start to gauge your joy on yourself and not on Christ, and you’ll begin to hope in the branch rather than the Vine.”
— J. A. Medders

“God’s arms are open. He is the prodigal’s father, yours and mine.”
–J. A. Medders

“Remember that Christ alone, and none of your works, makes you righteous before God.”
–J. A. Medders
