Getting the Order Right

The first statement of the Gospel is not an exhortation to action or to conduct and behaviour. Before man is called upon to do anything, he must have received something. Before God calls upon a man to put anything into practice, He has made it possible for man to put it into practice.

– D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Expository Sermons on 2 Peter, pp. 23-24.
