The Quotable Round-Up #104

xRHiMKgMerry Christmas to all! As I was creating this post, I’m in the middle of doing the laundry! LOL. Not so Christmasy activity isnt? But hey later this day me and my family will go out and celebrate the holidays. In the meantime, enjoy this special treat from Delighting Grace. It’s a collection of quotes from the book Humble Calvinism by Jeff Medders.  Special because it’s from a pre-release copy and schedule to be out on March 2019. Pre-order the book on Amazon or add it to your wish list by clicking this link: https://amzn.to/2LfH2CV

“Many of us who love to love the “doctrines of grace” have not grown in showing grace. We have not become more gracious, kind, tender, and compassionate. And that can only mean one thing: we actually don’t know the doctrines of grace.”

“A doctrinal disconnect between the head and heart fires up the production line of idolatry.”

“Calvinism in the head will puff you up. Calvinism in the heart will build others up.”

“Knowing the five points, the debating points, and the handy Spurgeon quotes in your head and not your heart will puff you up.”

“Heart Calvinism helps us love the Lord our God with more than just our mind but with
our heart, soul, and strength too. Heart Calvinism moves us to love our neighbors—all of them, not just our fellow Calvinists—as ourselves. Head Calvinism means we will become the kind of people who thrive on theological self-righteousness—the very people who received the harshest words from Jesus.”

“More than merely loving Calvinism, we need a loving Calvinism. We don’t need less Calvinism; we need real Calvinism—one that resides in our hearts rather than merely lodging in our heads.”

“We must see Christ in our Calvinism. If we don’t, throw the tulips out; they are worthless.”
