Life and Peace

” ‘To be spiritually minded is life and peace.’ What is the content of the term ‘peace with God’? The righteousness of the law can never be fulfilled in any man who is not at peace with God. The Apostle has already told us that fact about the unbeliever. We find it in verse 7 [of Romans 8]. The unbeliever is not only spiritually dead, but at the same time he is ‘at enmity against God’, his whole understanding of God is quite wrong. He regards God as an enemy; God is someone whom he hates. He may say he believes in God, but according to the Scripture he hates God; he feels that God is against him, he wishes there were not a God. Obviously such a man cannot possibly please God, neither can the righteousness of the law of God be fulfilled in him.”  –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones “Romans 8:5-17” p. 43

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.
