“The white devil of spiritual sin is far more dangerous than the black devil of carnal sin because the wiser, the better men are without Christ, the more they are likely to ignore and oppose the Gospel.”  – Martin Luther  (in this amazing Commentary on Galatians)

 

“God has promised to sustain us by his grace.  He has promised us the sustaining grace of forgiveness, so that we can stand before Him unafraid.  He has promised the sustaining grace of enablement, giving us the strength to do what he has called us to do.  He has promised us the sustaining grace of protection, delivering us from evil.  He has promised us the sustaining grace of wisdom, protecting us from our own foolishness.  He has promised us the sustaining grace of perseverance, keeping us until the final enemy has been defeated.  He has promised us the sustaining grace of eternity, giving us the hope of a day when the struggle will be over.”  – Paul David Tripp (Whiter Than Snow)
