The First Intent in Salvation Is the Glory of God

“…we think of salvation as something for us, something we need, something we want…we always start with ourselves. But the thing we have to learn is this, that the first objective and the first intent in salvation has to do…with the glory of God. That is the teaching of the whole Scripture from beginning to end.” .” –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones “God’s Way of Reconciliation – Ephesians 2” (Baker Book House) p. 108

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
