” ‘ the exceeding greatness of his power’ (Eph. 1:19)…the fruits of a new nature…The change was not produced by rational considerations, by moral suasion, nor by the power of the preacher, for he can no more quicken dead souls than he can dead bodies. It did not originate in any act of our wills, it was not effected by any human agency. There was something prior to the consent of our wills, namely, a radical and permanent inward transformation wrought by the hand of the Most High. And observe how energetic and impressive is the language used: not only the power of God or the greatness of that power but the ‘exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward.’ So weighty and emphatic is the language of the Greek that it is difficult to reproduce in English: ‘the super-excellent, sublime, and overcoming, or triumphant, greatness of His power’ is how one rendered it.” –A.W. Pink “Gleanings From Paul” p. 124-125
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.
