The Quotable Round-Up #31

Standard

Hello guys! Here’s your weekly dose of quotes featuring the book “God’s Word, Our Story” published by Crossway. Enjoy and God bless!

“Here is the great starting point for all of us  when we are dealing with the living God—a reverential, humble,  glad recognition that we are dependent, God is independent; we  are contingent, God is absolute; we are defined, God is the definer;  we are held in being by his will, he is absolute being.” — John Piper, God’s Word, Our Story

“Jesus sealed the new  covenant by his blood. The day of failure will soon be over. Till  then, we are sealed by the Spirit and are fighting sin by his power.” –John Piper, God’s Word, Our Story

“God does not exist for the sake of our enjoying biblical stories; biblical stories exist for the sake of our enjoying God.”- John Piper, God’s Word, Our Story

“Unfortunately, many of us are barely literate when it comes to  the flow of redemptive history. We go to our Bibles for something  to help us deal with our circumstances rather than to see how  God is dealing with the world. But the Bible is not about us; it’s  about God and his plan to redeem his fallen, miserable world, and  restore it to the glory he first sang into being at creation.” — Kathy Keller, God’s Word, Our Story

“Our prayer life  should be shaped and grounded in Scripture as often as possible,  as we respond to scriptural promises and statements about God.” — Kathy Keller, God’s Word, Our Story

“Immersion in God’s Word teaches us to pray the same way  immersion in language teaches a baby how to speak the language  of her parents.”- Kathy Keller, God’s Word, Our Story

“God’s people do not need to be powerful culturally or in power  politically to be obedient to him and accomplish his purposes in  the world. All they need to do to glorify him and join the great  sweep of redemptive history is to be faithful to the One who has  called them by his own name.”–Kathy Keller, God’s Word, Our Story

“When you become a Christian, your conviction of sin and your  experience of grace go all the way to the bottom—all the way  to that uttermost foundation. Christ goes there, and no matter  what happens, that foundation doesn’t change.”–Tim Keller, God’s Word, Our Story
