Jerry Bridges Quotes

Jerry Bridges Quotes: Peace should be a hallmark of the godly person, first because it is a Godlike trait: God is called the God of peace several times in the New Testament. He took the initiative to establish peace with rebellious men, and He is the author of both personal peace as well as peace among men.

Jerry Bridges Quote: This is the amazing story of God's grace. God saves us by His grace and transforms us more and more into the likeness of His Son by His grace.
