  1. JESUS’  WITH 

2 Corinthians 5:21

Sinclair Ferguson:

“Here already, Jesus indicates how He will become our Savior – by standing in the river in whose waters penitent Jews had symbolically washed away their sins, and allowing that water, polluted by those sins, to be poured over His perfect being.”

Philip Bliss:

“Guilty, vile and helpless we, spotless Lamb of God was He. Full atonement, can it be? Hallelujah! What a Savior!”


Gresham Machen:

“Thank God for the active obedience of Christ.”


Mark 1:10

Genesis 1:2  from the Targum:

“And the earth was without form and empty and darkness was on the face of the deep, and the spirit of God fluttered above the face of the waters like a dove.”



John 17:4-5

C.S. Lewis:

“In Christianity God is not a static thing… but a dynamic, pulsating activity, a life, almost a kind of drama.

Almost, if you will not think me irreverent, a kind of dance.”

Cornelius Plantinga:

“The persons within God exalt each other, commune with each other, and defer to one another…. Each divine person harbors the others at the center of his being. In constant movement of overture and acceptance, each person envelops and encircles the others…. God’s interior life therefore overflows with regard for others.”


Isaac Watts:

“No more let sins and sorrows grow nor thorns infest the ground He comes to make His blessings flow, far as the curse is found”

Philippians 2:1-4
