The Jesus Who Hides Himself

One difference I see between the God of modern Christianity and the God that I see revealed in scripture is that the God of the scripture will sometimes (if not often) hide himself. Finding God requires seeking God. The seeking is essential to what it is to being a "follower" of Christ.

Why Do You Wait?

God has reserved to himself the right and authority to judge the truth of man's salvation. He alone has access to that truth. He has given to his church to judge the fruit of man's salvation.

Humble walking with God is the great duty and most valuable concernment of believers. ... This is better than all your preaching, all your hearing, all your private meetings, all your conferences, all your fastings. -John Owen

Called

A sermon from Hebrews 5:4-6: And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was. So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest

Obligated

Random Quote

The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked: his wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into the fire; he is of purer eyes than to bear to have you in his sight; you are ten thousand times more abominable in his eyes, than the most hateful venomous serpent is in ours.

— Jonathan Edwards
