The Church’s Business

“That is the church’s business—to preach the Christ who died upon that Cross to reconcile men to God and to reconcile them to one another.  Language divides, nationalism divides, political allegiance divides, trade interests divide—but Jesus Christ unites.  In a common love to Him, men learn to love one another.”
(J.D. Jones)

Salvation Through Christ

“The way to get to heaven is to be saved through faith in Jesus Christ.
We get salvation as a gift, but we have to work it out, just as if we got a gold mine for a gift.
I do not get a crown by joining the church, or renting a pew.
There was Paul. He won his crown. He had many a hard fight; he met Satan on many a battle-field, and he overcame him and wore the crown.”
(Dwight L. Moody)

Infused with Christ

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
   Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
   Christ to comfort and restore me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
   Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
   Christ in mouth of friend and stranger. 

(Attributed to Patrick, the apostle to Ireland)
