No man can be thoroughly humbled until he knows that his salvation is utterly beyond his own powers, devices, endeavors, will and works. Martin Luther.
For in the cross of Christ, as in a splendid theater, the incomparable goodness of God is set before the whole world. The glory of God shines, indeed, in all creatures on high and below, but never more brightly than in the cross. John Calvin.
It was God’s word that made us; is it any wonder that His word should sustain us? Charles Spurgeon
