“The claim of the word of God upon us is absolute: the word is to be received, trusted and obeyed, because it is the word of God the King.
The essence of impiety is the proud willfulness of ‘these wicked people, who refuse to listen to My words’ (Jeremiah 13:10).
The mark of true humility and godliness, on the other hand, is that a person ‘trembles at My word’ (Isaiah 66:2).”
–J.I. Packer, Knowing God (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity, 1973), 101-102.
