“When we look back on our life from the perspective of eternity, we are going to see that the power of Satan was so great, that the weakness of our flesh was feeble, and that the hostility of the world was so strong, that every day of our lives—if God had not intervened—we would never have made it through a day.”
“I know of nothing which I would choose to have as the subject of my ambition for life than to be kept faithful to my God till death, still to be a soul winner, still to be a true herald of the cross, and testify the name of Jesus to the last hour. It is only such who in the ministry shall be saved.”
(Charles Haddon Spurgeon)
“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.”
“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)
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)
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.”
(Proverbs 9:10, ESV)
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
