Two closely related, powerful quotations are on the docket today, regarding the supremacy of the gospel of Christ.
“Only one act of pure love, unsullied by any taint of ulterior motive has ever been performed in the history of the world, namely the self-giving of God on the cross for undeserving sinners. That is why, if we are looking for a definition of love, we should look not in a dictionary, but at Calvary.”
-John Stott in The Cross of Christ
“To grow in your passion for what Jesus has done, increase your understanding of what He has done…Never be content with your grasp of the gospel. The gospel is life-permeating, world-altering, universe-changing truth. It has more facets than any diamond. Its depths man will never exhaust.”
-C.J. Mahaney in The Cross Centered Life
