Sermon Quotes: "The Best Day of the Week"

“Whatever it does to help people recuperate from being physically tired, this is incidental not primary.” Douglas Stuart

“Jesus was not abolishing the canonical authority of the Old Testament but correctly orienting it to terminate in his own authority. D.A. Carson explains that ‘the OT’s real and abiding authority must be understood through the person and teaching of him to whom it points and who so richly fulfills it’…the Christological claim here is simply staggering. Jesus understood himself to be the eschatological goal of the entire Old Testament and the sole authoritative interpreter of its teaching.” Stephen Wellum

“There is nothing in us or done by us, at any stage of our earthly development, because of which we are acceptable to God. We must always be accepted for Christ’s sake, or we cannot ever be accepted at all. This is not true of us, only ‘when we believe.’ It is just as true after we have believed. It will continue to be true as long as we live. Our need of Christ does not cease with our believing; nor does the nature of our relation to Him or to God through Him ever alter, no matter what our attainments in Christian graces or our achievements in Christian behavior may be. It is always on His ‘blood and righteousness’ alone that we can rest.” B.B. Warfield

“…day of all the week the best, emblem of eternal rest.” John Newton
