I read last night a great quote by Sinclair B. Ferguson who has served as the pastor of St. George’s-Tron Church in Glasgow, Scotland and also as professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.
He would always begin his course on the Holy Spirit like this:
The goal of theology is the worship of God. The posture of theology is on one’s knees. The mode of theology is repentance.
How true. Theology should lead to us knowing God in a deeper way. It should drive us in prayer in adoration of who He is, and it should lead us to repent as we are faced with who God is compared to who we are.
