J.I. Packer – No Peace Like Gospel Peace

8 Jan

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. – Romans 5:1

There is no peace like the peace of those whose minds are possessed with full assurance that they have known God, and God has known them, and that this relationship guarantees God’s favor to them in life, through death and on for ever.

J.I. Packer – The Purpose of Revelation

6 Nov

We must seek, in studying God, to be led to God. It was for this purpose that revelation was given, and it is to this use that we must put it.

J.I. Packer – When Studying the Trinity

1 Nov

Our aim in studying the Godhead must be to know God himself better. Our concern must be to enlarge our acquaintance, not simply with the doctrine of God’s attributes, but with the living God whose attributes they are.

J.I. Packer – The Triune God

30 Oct

God is triune; there are within the Godhead three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and the work of salvation is one in which all three act together, the Father purposing redemption, the Son securing it and the Spirit applying it.

J.I. Packer – The Study of God

3 Sep

Disregard the study of God, and you sentence yourself to stumble and blunder through life blindfolded, as it were, with no sense of direction and no understanding of what surrounds you. This way you can waste your life and lose your soul.

J.I. Packer – Knowing God Himself

20 Aug

Interest in theology, and knowledge about God, and the capacity to think clearly and talk well on Christian themes, is not at all the same thing as knowing him. We may know as much about God as Calvin knew—indeed, if we study his works diligently, sooner or later we shall — and yet all the time (unlike Calvin, may I say) we may hardly know God at all.

J.I. Packer – Turning All Things Into Prayer and Praise

6 Aug

How can we turn our knowledge about God into knowledge of God? The rule for doing this is simple but demanding. It is that we turn each truth that we learn about God into matter for meditation before God, leading to prayer and praise to God.
