“Peter does not say that the real grounds for believing this Gospel are something like this: ‘I was once a fisherman, a man who lived a sinful life. But since I have become a Christian and a preacher and an apostle I have had amazing experiences.’ Peter does not base his argument upon his own experience in an inward sense, or upon the results of the Gospel in his particular case. …There are many agencies which can give people very definite and remarkable experiences. …I am a Christian not because I see certain effects produced in certain people who believe the Gospel. Why am I a Christian? Well, my final reason is that I believe what I am told in this book. …I may have a psychological experience, I may become a different man—that does not make me a Christian.” –Martyn Lloyd-Jones “2 Peter” (Banner of Truth) p. 87, 89, 90
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.
