After 5 years and a 100 posts I've decided to pack it up and move over to wordpress.com. My new blogging address is everywheregospel.wordpress.com.

Another great quote from J.I. Packer's new book:
"The truth, however, is that in many respects, and certainly in spiritual matters, we are all weak and inadequate and we need to face it. Sin, which disrupts all relationships, has disabled us all across the board. We need to be aware of our limitations and let this awareness work in us humility and self-distrust, and a realization of our helplessness on our own. Thus we may learn our need to depend on Christ, our Savior and Lord, at every turn of the road, to practice that dependence as one of the constant habits of our heart, and hereby to discover what Paul discovered before us: 'when I am weak, then I am strong' (2 Cor. 12:10)." -pg 15-16

A great quote from J.I. Packer's new book:
For all Christians, the likelihood is... that as our discipleship continues, God will make us increasingly weakness-conscious and pain-aware, so that we may learn... that when we are conscious of being weak, then--and only then--may we become truly strong in the Lord. And should we want it any other way? What do you think?
