Quotes to Consider:
John G. Butler on Exodus 33:19: "[Moses’]
anger was an illustration of righteous indignation which we need to see
a lot more of in people. So many folk can look at evil deeds and hardly
get upset. Sin does not bother them as it ought. It ought to really
enrage mankind, but it does not. One reason it does not upset folk very
much is that they do not spend much time with God. Moses had just spent
forty days and nights with God. No wonder he was upset with sin. If you
spend much time in the Word of God and in prayer to God, you will not be
very tolerant of sin either. Many of our churches have a problem dealing
with sin in the church because only a few people live close enough to
God to get upset about sin. Most of the congregation is not bothered
about the evil in the church, and they will oppose doing anything about
it" (Moses—The Emancipator of Israel, p. 556).
John Owen on II Corinthians 1:20: "... these
discoveries of God’s good-will are made through Christ, as the only
medium of their accomplishment, and only procuring cause of the good
things that, flowing from the good-will of God, are inwrapped and
tendered in them ... In him, and by his mediation, they have all their
confirmation, establishment, and unchangeableness unto us" (Works, vol.
11, p. 230).
