A short word

While reading John MacArthur's "Think Biblically", a book he did not author but just edited, one of the contributors clarified this quote:

"God says it. I believe it. That settles it."

While most people (especially reformers) would respond with a hearty AMEN, we must be careful our humility does not fail us. The order here is wrong. MY belief has nothing to do with the settling of the matter. God said it, that settles it. I am privileged by the grace of my Saviour to believe it.

This comes right to the heart of the gospel. sinners need the Saviour. We need to give God His rightful place.
