The Marvelous and Dangerous Love of God

Great quotes from classic texts.

JI Packer

“God’s love is an exercise of His goodness towards individual sinners whereby, having identified Himself with their welfare, He has given His Son to be their Saviour, and now brings them to know and enjoy Him in a covenant relation.”

J.I. Packer, Knowing God, 111.

How wonderful and marvelous is it that we,

we sinners,
we lost, we corrupt, and selfish,
and petty,
and unfaithful,
liars, and cheats, filled with anger,
and bitterness,
and resentment,
slow to forgive,
quick to speak,
gossips, immoral, unethical,
we unholy image bearers of God have been bought by the precious blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:19) and made children of the living God?! (1 John 3:1)

Oh how blessed we are, a truly blessed people! To be loved by this holy and righteous God who promises forgiveness, an inheritance, eternal life, and his abiding presence is worth shouting about and sharing with the world.
