A Call to Service in the Midst of Suffering

A Call to Service in the Midst of Suffering Look, I go forward, but He is not there, And backward, but I cannot perceive Him; When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him; When He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him.

A.W. Pink (1886-1952) on the Supremacy of God

The “god” of this twentieth century no more resembles the Supreme Sovereign of Holy Writ than does the dim flickering of a candle the glory of the midday sun.

NO revolving of a world, no shining of a star, no storm, no movement of a creature, no actions of men, no errands of angels, no deeds of the Devil—nothing …Continue reading →

Quotable: A. W. Pink (1886-1952)
