Quotes from the Cloud #30

This year, I hope share weekly posts of quotes. These quotes are from authors I'm reading and enjoying from the Clouds of Witnesses Reading Challenge

God's working in us [in sanctification] is not suspended because we work, nor our working suspended because God works. Neither is the relation strictly one of cooperation as if God did his part and we did ours so that the conjunction or coordination of both produced the required result. God works in us and we also work. But the relation is that because God works we work. ~ John Murray
“ Every sin is so voluntary, that if it be not voluntary it is not sin.” ~ Augustine
There will be no inward peace until God is exalted over us and we are abased. We can read all the books in the world and we can read the Scriptures through once a year and sing our way through the hymnal, but when it is all over, we will never find peace or victory until God is given the place in our hearts that He has in the universe. ~ A.W. Tozer
Sin sets its strength against every act of holiness and against every degree we grow to. ~ John Owen
Let not that man think he makes any progress in holiness who walks not over the bellies of his lust. ~ John Owen
