D.A. Carson Quotes

  • Our Greatest Need

    cross“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, he would have sent an economist.

    If he had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, he would have sent us a comedian or an artist.

    If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, he would have sent us a politician.

    If he had perceived that our greatest need was health, he would have sent us a doctor.

    But he perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death;

    ... and he sent us a Savior. ”

    ― D.A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers

    quote 1439

    “People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.”
