…from his exposition on 1 John 2:29 and 1 John 3:1, in his book Life in Christ, which a group of our adults study each Wednesday night:
Oh, the quality of this love! Just realize what it means, the freeness of it all, that you and I should be called children of God! The freeness of this love that has looked upon us in spite of our sin, in spite of our recalcitrance, in spite of our unworthiness, in spite of our foulness as a result of the Fall and our own actions. Oh, the love that has not merely forgiven us but has given itself to us, that has entered into us and shared its own nature with us; stand in awe at the greatness of it!
Heed these words, especially in the next week as we ponder the Savior’s love.
I’m looking for an out of print book…
Love So Amazing (Expositions of Colossians 1) by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, published by Baker Books. If anyone could help me locate a copy of this to own, let me know.
There is nothing, perhaps, in the whole range and realm of doctrine which, if properly grasped and understood, gives greater assurance, greater comfort, and greater hope than this doctrine of our union with Christ. (as quoted in How People Change, p.34. Originally quoted in Lloyd-Jones commentary on Romans, chapter 6, pp.106-148.)
