God’s love is relentless in its determination that we be cured of our sins, at whatever the cost to us or to Him.
— C. S. Lewis
We need to understand that when the Spirit communicates to God’s people, he communicates to them by the Word, with the Word, through the Word, and never against the Word. There are millions who claim to be led by the Spirit into sin and disobedience. The testimony we receive from the Holy Spirit comes in and through the Word.
— R. C. Sproul
Only when we turn away from looking at our sin to look at the face of God, do we begin to repent. Only by seeing that there is grace and forgiveness with him would we ever dare to repent and thus return to the fellowship and presence of the Father. Only when grace appears on the horizon offering forgiveness will the sunshine of the love of God melt our hearts and draw us back to him.
