"The essence of the Christian position is experience - experience of God! It is not a mere intellectual awareness or apprehension of truth. That can be of the devil ... If the experience is not an experience of the living God through His Son who has come to live and to die again in order to give it; if it is not through the Holy Spirit, it is not a true Christian experience".
Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones - "Ephesians Chapter 6:10-13 - The Christian Warfare" - Banner of Truth, Edinburgh (1976) - (p197).
