also a J. I. Packer Quote:
The greatest single secret of spiritual development lies in personal, humble, believing, obedient response to the Word of God. It is as God speaks to us through his Word that his warnings can bring us to conviction of sin, his promises to assurance of forgiveness, and his commands to amendment of life. We live and grow by his Word. From "Confess your Sins" (London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1964), p. 82.
