Sermon Quotes: "Joy"

“The principle which Paul is applying here is that behind every display of divine goodness stands a threat of severity in judgment if that goodness is scorned. If we do not let it draw us to God in gratitude and responsive love, we have only ourselves to blame when God turns against us…The Bible makes much of the patience and forbearance of God in postponing merited judgments in order to extend the day of grace and give more opportunity for repentance.” - J.I. Packer

“Luke forecasts the outcome of Jesus entire ministry; we see here the shadow of the cross.” - Thomas Schreiner
