Knowing Yourself Begins With Knowing God

11 Nov

“You come to me and say, ‘I’m unhappy. I’m conscious of a conflict. I’m in a crisis. What’s the matter with me?’ And the Bible says, ‘In the beginning God…’ as if it has forgotten all about you. But it has not! The only way to understand yourself or your life is to start with God. And right at the very beginning the Bible takes us there. If you are not clear about this, you will go wrong everywhere else…You cannot understand life, says the Bible, unless you realize that there, at the back of everything, before everything, is God.”
-Martyn Lloyd-Jones
