Every Friday, I am going to post a quote or give commentary on a Founder of the SBC. Today, we have some words from J.L. Dagg.
“Love to God implies cordial approbation of his moral character. His natural attributes, eternity, immensity, omnipotence,& etc., may fill us with admiration; but these are not the proper objects of love. If we worship him in the beauty of holiness, the beauty of his holiness must excite the love of our hearts. As our knowledge of the moral perfections increases, our delight will stimulate to further study of them; and to a more diligent observation of the various methods in which they are manifested. The display of them, even in the most terrible exhibitions of his justice, will be contemplated with reverent, but approving awe; and their united glory, as seen in the great scheme of redemption by Christ, will be viewed with unmixed and never-ceasing delight.”
Quote from Manual of Theology,pg.49,Gano Books, 1990
Have a blessed day.
