September 17 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

God Enters the Heart with a Master-Key
Psalm 105:37; John 3:3–8; Ephesians 4:22–24

God does not violate the human will when he saves men: they are not converted against their will, but their will itself is converted. The Lord has a way of entering the heart, not with a crowbar, like a burglar, but with a master-key, which he gently inserts in the lock, and the bolt flies back, the door opens, and he enters.

God’s Existence Demonstrable from His Effects
Psalm 19:1–2; Romans 1:19–20

The existence of God, in so far as it is not self-evident to us, can be demonstrated from those of His effects which are known to us.
