True Spirituality

‘Nothing we experience can secure us on the rock of spiritual reality, or fix us on the last foundation of being, till we experience the Gospel as God’s utmost with man’s worst, the Gospel of Redemption by gracious judgment. We are saved hardly … True spirituality is not the highest stage of the blossoming world, but it is the world beaten, broken, and led captive. It stands not on the world’s development, but on a break with the world, the inroad of a new life in a new kind.’ (P.T. Forsyth, The Church, The Gospel and Society, 98-99)
