Charles Spurgeon on studying to know God –

The highest science and mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of the child of God is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings, and the existence of the great God whom he calls his Father.  And while the subject humbles the mind, it also expands it.  He who often thinks of God, will have a larger mind than the man who simply plods around this narrow globe.  Nothing will so enlarge the intellect, nothing so magnify the whole soul of man, as a devout, earnest, continued study of the great subject of the Deity.


J.I. Packer on the omnipresence of God –

A God whose presence and scrutiny I could evade would be a small and trivial deity.  But the true God is great and terrible, just because He is always with me and His eye is always upon me.  Living becomes an awesome business when you realise that you spend every moment of your life in the sight and company of an omniscient, omnipresent Creator.
