The Quotable Round-Up #25

Standard

Here are the freshest quotes for the week featuring John Murray’s book “Redemption: Accomplished and Applied”. Enjoy!

“When Christ is presented to lost men in the proclamation of the gospel, it is as Saviour he is presented, as one who ever continues to be the embodiment of the salvation he has once for all accomplished. It is not the possibility of salvation that is offered to lost men but the Saviour himself and therefore salvation full and perfect. There is no imperfection in the salvation offered and there is no restriction to its overture—it is full, free, and unrestricted.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“Regeneration is the act of God and of God alone. But faith is not the act of God; it is not God who believes in Christ for salvation, it is the sinner. It is by God’s grace that a person is able to believe but faith is an activity on the part of the person and of him alone. In faith we receive and rest upon Christ alone for salvation.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“The embrace of Christ in faith is the first evidence of regeneration and only thus may we know that we have been regenerated.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“No one can say in truth that Jesus is the Christ except by regeneration of the Spirit and that is one of the ways by which the Holy Spirit glorifies Christ.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“Regeneration is the beginning of all saving grace in us, and all saving grace in exercise on our part proceeds from the fountain of regeneration. We are not born again by faith or repentance or conversion; we repent and believe because we have been regenerated.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“For unless God by sovereign, operative grace had turned our enmity to love and our disbelief to faith we would never yield the response of faith and love.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied

“Regeneration is the beginning of inwardly operative saving grace.”
— John Murray, Redemption: Accomplished and Applied
