“Despite personal hardships, Peter, like Paul, wrote to encourage others, to build them up in their faith, and to give them direction and guidance. In your struggles, do you look inward or outward? Do you tend to feel sorry for yourself or to encourage others?” (Page 1099)

“Rich or poor, believers must obey God and love him. This could be called the heart of James’s message. If we really love God, both our faith in him and our obedience to him will be right. We will not belittle anyone with whom we share a common inheritance.” (Page 1077)

“According to human standards, Jesus was merely a human being, an insignificant man who died like a criminal. But that changed at Paul’s encounter with the risen Christ on the Damascus road (Acts 9:1–15). In the same way, believers are changed when they meet Christ. Christians are new people. The Holy Spirit gives them new life, and they are not the same anymore. Christians are not reformed, rehabilitated, or reeducated—they are recreated. At conversion, believers are not merely turning over a new leaf; they are beginning a new life under a new Master. The old life of sin and death has gone; the selfish, sinful human nature has been dealt a death blow (see Galatians 5:16–21, 24). Old ways of thinking, old distinctions, have been abolished. In its place, a new life has begun.” (Page 728)

“This miracle and these leftovers reveal Jesus once again as the all-sufficient Lord. Our needs and problems are not obstacles to him, for his abundant power transcends any need or problem we place before him.” (Page 398)
