Hoekema quote on man’s dependence

18 10 2006

I came accross this quote studying for our weekend retreat and found it edifying and thought provoking:

Man is bound to God as a fish is bound to water. When a fish seeks to be free from the water, it loses both its freedom and its life. When we seek to be ‘free’ from God, we become slaves of sin. (Anthony Hoekema)
