“By affliction he teaches us many precious lessons which without it we should never learn. By affliction he shows us our emptiness and weakness, draws us to the throne of grace, purifies our affections, weans us from the world, makes us long for heaven. On the resurrection morning we will all say, ‘it was good for me to be afflicted’ (Psalm 119:71). We will thank God for every storm.” (Page 61)

“‘The life of Christianity,’ says Luther, ‘consists in possessive pronouns.’ It is one thing to say ‘Christ is a Saviour.’ It is quite another to say ‘He is my Saviour and my Lord.’ The devil can say the first. The true Christian alone can say the second.” (Pages 8–9)

“First, we see how apt people are to undervalue things with which they are familiar.” (Page 79)

“So long as we think that we can keep the law of God, Christ does us no good” (Page 152)

“The honest master pays his laborers according to the work they do, and not according to the crops that grow on his land. Our Master in heaven will deal with all his servants in this way on the last day. He knows that success is not under their control. He knows that they cannot change hearts. He will reward them according to their labor, and not according to the fruits which have resulted from their labor. It is not ‘the good and successful servant’ but the ‘good and faithful servant’ to whom he will say, ‘Come and share your master’s happiness!’” (Page 143)
