Because of Jesus Coming to Earth

“He has conquered sin and Satan and earth and the grave; he has been highly exalted and a name has been given to him which is above every name.  It is because of what he has done, it is a consequence of his incarnation and humiliation and especially of his death upon the cross.  He, by doing that, has redeemed the universe and God has placed him in control.  What a glorious thought to have in our minds as we face life in this world.  Sin is still there and we shall be tempted, we shall be tried; Satan in his various ways will attack us, but oh, I beseech you, look above it to him who  is there glorified and exalted because he has conquered.”  — D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones The Life of Joy — An Exposition of Philippians 1 and 2 (Banner of Truth) p. 156

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.
