If true religion is to shine on us we must grasp the necessity of beginning with teaching from above, and that it is impossible for anyone to gain an atom of sound doctrine without being a disciple of Scripture. We take the first step towards true knowledge when we reverently take hold of the testimony God has graciously given about himself.

The key to contentment as a single person is not trying to make singleness into something that will satisfy us; it is to find contentment in Christ as a single person. The key to contentment as a married person is not trying to build a marriage that can make us content; it is to find contentment in Christ as a married person. This is liberating. It means that my contentment is not contingent on my marital status, or on the number and depth of my friendships. These are not the most significant determiners of what will make life ultimately work.

God knows me more than I know myself. God loves me more than I love myself. God is more committed to my ultimate joy than I am. So I can trust Him.

If men and women were surer of their God there would be more genuine manliness, womanliness, and godliness in the world, and a whole lot less fear of each other.
