Knowing God Pt. 6 "Potter & the Clay"

"There is a lot of it (sloth) around today in Chrisitan circles; the symptoms are personal spiritual inertia combined with critical cycincism about the churches and supercilious resentment of other Christians' initiative and enterprise.

Behind this morbid and deadening condition often lies the wounded pride of one who thought he knew all about the ways of God in providence an then was made to learn by bitter and bewildering experience that he didn't...

The truth is that God in his wisdom, to make and keep us humble and to teach us to walk by faith, has hidden from us almost everything that we should like to know about the providential purposes which he is working out in the churches and our own lives."

Pg 106 Knowing God by JI Packer
