    "The character of God is today, and always will be, exactly what it

    was in Bible times."

    -J. I. Packer

    "Many Christians have what we might call a 'cultural holiness.' They

    adapt to the character and behavior pattern of Christians around

    them... But God has not called us to be like those around us. He

    has called us to be like Himself. Holiness is nothing less than

    conformity to the character of God."

    -Jerry Bridges

    "The Reformation did not directly touch the question of the true

    character of God's church."

    -John Nelson Darby

    "The character of God is today, and always will be, exactly what it

    was in Bible times."

    -J. I. Packer

    "The foundation of worship in the heart is not emotional ("I feel full

    of worship" or "The atmosphere is so worshipful"). Actually, it is

    theological. Worship is not something we "work up," it is something

    that "comes down" to us, from the character of God."

    Sinclair B. Ferguson

    "Faith is confidence in the character of God and if we don't know

    what kind of God God is, we can't have faith."

    -Aiden Wilson Tozer

    "Whether you can see it or not - and often we cannot - everything

    is being used of God for your good as well as the good of others.

    This knowledge is by faith. It is not always by sight. But it is never-

    theless certain, because it is based on the character of God, who

    reveals himself to us as both sovereign and benevolent We are

    not to be anxious about the unknown future or to fret about it. We

    are to live in a moment-by-moment dependence upon God."

    -James Montgomery Boice

    "Joy isn't grounded in our circumstances; it is grounded in the

    unchanging character of God."

    -Carolyn Custis James

    "Holiness is not a series of doīs and donīts but conformity to the

    character of God and obedience to the will of God."

    -Jerry Bridges

    "Nothing can alter the character of God. In the course of a human

    life, tastes and outlook and temper may change radically: a kind,

    equable man may turn bitter and crotchety: a man of good-will may

    grow cynical and callous. But nothing of this sort happens to the

    Creator. He never becomes less truthful, or merciful, or just, or

    good, than He used to be."

    -J. I. Packer

    "What we see at the cross is the white-hot revelation of the character

    of God, of his love providing the price that holiness requires. The

    cross was his means of redeeming lost sinners and reconciling them

    to himself, but it was also a profound disclosure of his mercy. It is,

    in Paulīs words, an `inexpressible giftī that leads us to wonder and

    worship, to praise and adore the God who has given himself to us

    in this way."

    -David F. Wells

    "Oh the folly of any mind that would explain God before obeying Him!

    That would map out the character of God instead of crying, Lord,

    what wouldst thou have me to do?"

    -George MacDonald
