J. I. Packer: In His Own Words

A Powerful Voice

As we look back on the life of J. I. Packer, join us in thanking God for his humble writing ministry and the legacy of his faithful service to the church. Of his own life, he said:

As I look back on the life that I have lived, I would like to be remembered as a voice—a voice that focused on the authority of the Bible, the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the wonder of his substitutionary sacrifice and atonement for our sins.

I would like to be remembered as a voice calling Christian people to holiness and challenging lapses in Christian moral standards.

I should like to be remembered as someone who was always courteous in controversy, but without compromise.

I ask you to thank God with me for the way that he has led me, and I wish, hope, pray that you will enjoy the same clear leading from him—and the same help in doing the tasks that he sets you—that I have enjoyed.

And if your joy matches my joy as we continue in our Christian lives, well . . . you will be blessed indeed.
