The more we realize...that we are all bought with the same precious blood, that we are all in the same Spirit, that the same life of the risen Jesus is in us, that we are all heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, and shall before long enter into the glory of God—if these things were more present to our hearts, how loving, kind, and forbearing would the children of God be!
We are left here to be representatives of the Lord Jesus Christ in this world....All the members of the heavenly family should remember the precious blood that bought them, and love one another whilst on the way to their Father’s house.
—The George Müller Treasury, quoted in Free Grace Broadcaster, Winter 1997, pp. 29, 30
Human learning and great abilities are common to heathens as well as to Christians; and great actions are performed as well by infidels as by believers. It is love only which proves the sure test of a sound Christian....“God is love, and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 Jn:4:16).
—John Arndt (1555-1621), quoted in Free Grace Broadcaster, Winter 1997, p. 33
