Mercy and punishment, they flow from God, as the honey and the sting from the bee.
— Thomas Brooks
If every attribute of the Deity were a distinct member, purity would be the form, the soul, the spirit to animate them. Without holiness, his patience would be an indulgence to sin, his mercy a fondness, his wrath a madness, his power a tyranny, his wisdom an unworthy subtlety. Holiness gives decorum to them all.
— Stephen Charnock
From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered forth that God still lives, that God still observes all things, and still reigns. There is no fixed resting place for the heart and mind, but in the Throne of God. What is needed now, as never before, is a full, positive, constructive setting forth of the Godhood of God.
— A. W. Pink
