Quotes to Consider:
F. W. Grosheide on I Corinthians 7:29: "Time is
compressed because we live in the period between the descent of the
Holy Spirit and the return of Christ. This period demands the end of
all things and also hastens towards that end (Rev. 22:20). Thereby
time is characterized and our own life as well. For that reason our
life should be free from the present time and direct itself toward
life eternal (Heb. 11:13-15). Henceforth has the following
import: Because the time is shortened there remains only one thing we
should be concerned about. That one thing necessary is to have the eye
directed toward heaven."
Thomas Watson: "They who can say, ‘our Father,’
can say ‘our bread.’ Wicked men that have a legal right to what they
possess, but not a covenant right; they have it by providence, not by
promise; with God’s leave, not with his love" (The Lord’s
Prayer, p. 203).
Herman Hoeksema on "Give us this day our daily
bread": "The statement is often made ... that in this petition we
have the promise that God’s people in this world will never lack
bread, will never suffer hunger, that every day their food and drink
will certainly be provided. And, in the sense that the Lord will
surely always care for His people, and that He will provide them with
the necessary means to live as His people in the world, this may be
said to be true. But we should not forget that all this is strictly
subservient to the purpose of God’s glory, to the coming of His
kingdom, and to the realization of His will. Scripture teaches us
everywhere that we must expect suffering for righteousness’ sake in
the world. And this suffering may very well include that ... we really
suffer hunger and want, starvation and death."
