He is not the …

“He is not the soul of Nature, nor any part of Nature. He inhabits eternity: He dwells in a high and holy place: heaven is His throne, not his vehicle, earth is His footstool, not His vesture.

“One day He will dismantle both and make a new heaven and earth. He is not to be identified even with the ‘divine spark’ in man. He is ‘God and not man.”
C. S. Lewis

Christian people …

“Christian people, you and I are living in the midst of men and women who are in a state of gross darkness. They will never have any light anywhere in this world except from you and from me and the gospel we believe and teach. They are watching us. Do they see something different about us? Are our lives a silent rebuke to them? Do we so live as to lead them to come and ask us, ‘Why do you always look so peaceful? How is it you are so balanced? How can you stand up to things as you do? Why is it you are not dependent upon artificial aids and pleasures as we are? What is this thing that you have got?’ If they do we can then tell them that wondrous, amazing, but tragically neglected news, that ‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners’, and to give men a new nature and a new life and to make them children of God. Christian people alone are the light of the world today. Let us live and function as children of light.”
– Martyn Lloyd-Jones
