Sermon Quotes: "Grace & Peace" (Phil. 1:1-2)

Of all Paul’s letters . . . there are certain qualities belonging to this particular epistle, which make it unique. It is the most lyrical, the happiest letter the Apostle ever wrote.
— D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Life of Joy and Peace
As long as Christ remains outside of us, and we are separated from him, all that he has suffered and done for the salvation of the human race remains useless and of no value to us. Therefore, to share in what he has received from the Father, he had to become ours and to dwell within us.
— John Calvin, Institutes
