Quote to Consider

Herman Hoeksema on Lord’s Day 16: “We lie in the midst of death in this world: dying we die. All the suffering and agony, all the sorrow and grief of this present time are the operation of death. When we confess by faith that our death is not meant as a satisfaction for sin, this also implies that all our present sufferings of soul and body are no longer to be considered as punishment for sin and expressions of the righteous judgment of God” (The Death of the Son of God, p. 269).
