He Needs None of Them

“It is a great honour to God that he has so many millions of creatures at his will and pleasure, that he has so many eyes to see for him, and so many ears to hear for him, and so many hands to work for him; but it is a greater honour to him that he needs none of them — he can do all without them; that though they are serviceable to him, yet they are not necessary to him; for God and all his creatures do no more, can do no more than God without any of his creatures.” –George Swinnock “Works of…” Vol. 4, p. 444

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.
