Quotes Worth Pondering – Jared Wilson

QuotesWorthPonderingJared Wilson, author of Gospel Wakefulness, and a pastor/blogger from Vermont writes…

“One of the marks of gospel wakefulness is the failure of anything else to thrill the soul like the gospel.  When the heart treasures Christ and savours His power, sin grows bitter.  Even good gifts that God made delicious recede to their proper flavors.  Good things we have made “god things” don’t cease to be good; in fact, they continue to provide pleasures and satisfactions, but they keep their proper functions and blessings, in service to the common grace the God of Glory ascribed to them.” (from Gospel Wakefulness, p. 59)
