What Christians Should Stop Saying – "To say something was a 'God thing' seems to draw lines of distinction between what God is and is not involved in that Scripture itself does not draw. I rarely hear anyone use this phrase when speaking of a particularly difficult or trying or devastating circumstance. We generally apply it only to the victories. The truth is, all of those are His things. "
Lloyd-Jones On Antinomianism – "A very good way of testing any view that you may hold is this one: Is this view humbling to me, glorifying to God? If it is, it is probably right. You won’t go far wrong if whatever view you are holding is glorifying to God, humbling to man. But if your view seems to glorify you and to query God, well (there’s no need to argue or to go into details) it’s wrong. It’s a very good universal rule–that!"
The Chief End of Man’s Salvation: God’s Glory – "Why do you want eternal life? Simply to avoid the pains of hell? Simply to be with your loved ones who have gone before? Simply to enjoy the beauty of a new heavens and a new earth? Where is God in that picture? According to the imagery employed by the Prophet Isaiah and later by the Apostle John, God Himself will be at the center of our solar system in the new heavens and new earth (vv. 19-20; cf. Rev. 21:23; 22:5) and our entire existence will forever revolve around Him! If that’s what you’re living for, then you have a handle on the gospel. If that’s not what you’re living for, then you have not yet appreciated the gospel’s chief end."
