Breaking God’s Laws

Vance Havnerby Vance Havner

We speak of “breaking the laws of God” but actually we cannot break them. If you jump from the Empire State Building you don’t break the law of gravitation – you just break your neck! The Ten Commandments stand today, unchanged and unchangeable. When we violate them, we suffer. What we sow, we reap. God is not mocked. When we crash into the pillars of God’s eternal principles, we are smashed but the pillars remain standing.

A Fire-Escape From Hell!

A.W. Pinkby A.W. Pink

The Doctrine of Sanctification” 1937

Christ is usually set forth as a fire-escape from Hell, but not as the great Physician to deal with the malady of indwelling sin, and to fit for Heaven.

Much is said upon how to obtain forgiveness of sins–but little is preached on how to be cleansed from its pollutions. The necessity for His atoning blood is set forth–but not the indispensability of experimental holiness.

Consequently, thousands who mentally assent to the sufficiency of Christ’s sacrifice, know nothing about heart purity.

The precious blood of the Lamb not only delivers from Hell, but it also fits us for Heaven.

By our union with Christ we receive a new and holy nature, whereby we are capacitated for holy living–which holy living is determined and regulated by our practical and experimental fellowship with Him.
