I am looking for the source of this quote attributed to Philip Yancey. I want to see it in context.
"Because of Jesus … I must adjust my instinctive notions about God. Perhaps that lay at the heart of his mission? Jesus reveals a God who comes in search for us, a God who makes room for our freedom even when it costs the Son’s life, a God is vulnerable. Above all, Jesus reveals a God who is love." Philip Yancey?
I am also looking for the source of this quote attributed to J.B. Phillips. I want to see it in context also.
“Jesus once declared that God is good to the ungrateful and the wicked Luke 6:35 and I remember preaching a sermon on this text to a horrified and even astonished congregation who simply refused to believe in this astounding liberality of God. That God should be in a state of constant fury with the wicked seemed to them only right and proper, but that God should be kind towards those who were defying or disobeying His laws seemed to them a monstrous injustice. Yet I was but quoting the Son of God Himself, and I only comment here that the terrifying risks that God takes are part of His Nature. We do not need to explain or modify His unremitting love towards mankind.” J.B. Phillips?
I posted them here for I believe they qualify as devotional thoughts and because the Faithlife community has amazing libraries.
Thanks for any assistance.
Thank You that is what I was looking for.
