Standard

Here are the freshest quotes from your favorite Christian authors. May this bring encouragement to you throughout the week. Enjoy!
“Warfare with the powers of hell is the experience of every individual member of the true Church. Each has to fight.”
— J. C. Ryle, Warnings to the Churches
“Propitiation places in the focus of attention the wrath of God and the divine provision for the removal of that wrath. Reconciliation places in the focus of attention our alienation from God and the divine method of restoring us to his favour.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“Propitiation presupposes the wrath and displeasure of God, and the purpose of propitiation is the removal of this displeasure. Very simply stated the doctrine of propitiation means that Christ propitiated the wrath of God and rendered God propitious to his people.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“The only righteousness conceivable that will meet the requirements of our situation as sinners and meet the requirements of a full and irrevocable justification is the righteousness of Christ. This implies his obedience and therefore his incarnation, death, and resurrection.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“Atheists typically tell us that the way science has shown there’s no God is by failing to uncover any evidence for him. Of course, in this form, such an argument would be startlingly weak. After all, absence of evidence isn’t necessarily evidence of absence.”—Mitch Stokes, A Shot of Faith in the Head

“It was of the free and sovereign good pleasure of his (God) will, a good pleasure that emanated from the depths of his own goodness, that he chose a people to be heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“Although faith is usually represented as a condition, required to interest us in Christ; yet it is also held forth as one of the blessings of the new covenant, a blessing which Christ has purchased for us. Whence Christ is to be viewed as having procured for us not only salvation if we believe, but also faith that we may believe.”
— Francis Turretin, The Atonement of Christ
