“When we hear God’s Word read and taught, it does much more than reveal our sin; it reveals our Savior. God’s good word to his people is that our sin will not get the final word in our lives. His grace and mercy will get the final word.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
“Because of grace, when we hear and understand God’s Word, we are not left to simmer in a pool of regret and shame. Sorrow over sin must give way to joy.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
“Knowing that it is the Lord’s joy to extend grace to sinners gives us strength to live for him and love him rather than run from him.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
“Week after week, as we gather as God’s people, and the Word of God is read and we’re given the sense of it so that we understand it, we rightly feel the weight of our failure to be all that God has intended for us to be. But he does not send us away in sorrow. Instead, we are invited to his table, where we feast on his broken body and his shed blood, so that we leave with great rejoicing. We find that partaking in the Lord’s feast fills us with the Lord’s joy.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
“Have you discovered that saying yes to God’s commands actually brings you greater joy than whatever it is that tempts you to ignore or defy what God has commanded?” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
“All who were once unclean and have now been made clean by the blood of an all-sufficient sacrifice will, on that day, be made holy to live in God’s presence in the ultimate Most Holy Place called the new heaven and new earth.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
“Why would we settle for the happiness the world offers when we are being invited into the joy of the Lord? Why would we ever search for the happiness our hearts long for anywhere other than in “the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God” (Heb. 11:10)?” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
