Do not expect to grow in holiness if you spend little time alone with God and do not take His Word seriously.— Joel Beeke
The most successful Joel Beeke quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual
Let every preacher take note: Amid the frustrations and hardships of ministry, the most Christ-like thing is to stay focused on your calling, give thanks to God, and go on preaching the Gospel.
In essence, sin is all that is in opposition to God.

Spiritual adoption is the excellency and apex of God's salvation.

Every person in the world is by nature a slave to sin.
The world, by nature, is held in sin's grip. What a shock to our complacency- that everything of us by nature belongs to sin. Our silences belong to sin, our omissions belong to sin, our talents belong to sin, our actions belong to sin. Every facet of our personalities belong to sin; it own us and dominates us. We are its servants.
God’s Word, when rightly expounded, is medicinal for a whole host of spiritual diseases.
