A heathen philosopher once asked: “Where is God?” The Christian answered: “Let me first ask you, where is He not?”
— John Arrowsmith
We know God but as men born blind know the fire: they know that there is such as thing as fire, for they feel it warm them, but what it is they know not. So, that there is a God we know, but what He is we know little, and indeed we can never search Him out to perfection; a finite creature can never fully comprehend that which is infinite.
— Thomas Manton
The titles are God are virtually promises, when He is called a sun, a shield, a strong tower, a hiding place, a portion. The titles of Christ: light of the world; bread of life; the way, the truth, and life; the titles of the Spirit; the Spirit of truth, of holiness, of glory, of grace, of supplication, the sealing, witnessing Spirit – faith may conclude as much out of these as out of promises.
— David Clarkson
You are those worthies “of whom the world is not worthy,” Hebrews 11:38. You are the princes “that prevail with God,” Genesis 32:28. You are those “excellent ones” in whom is all Christ’s delight, Psalm 16:3. You are His glory. You are His picked, culled, prime instruments which He will make use of to carry on His best and greatest work against His worst and greatest enemies in these latter days.
