A heart that is ungrateful will always be unfruitful!

– There is a danger that familiarity will rob you of your awe of God and that it will be quickly replaced by awe of you.
– Security is not so much about being confident in your own abilities, but about being blown away by the grace and glory of God.
– If you are to fully celebrate the grace of Jesus Christ you have to first grieve the depth of your iniquity and inability.

The Chronicles of Narnia by Leland Ryken

Leland RykenDr. Leland Ryken is professor of English at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, and he is author of Choosing a Bible.

One of the most important pieces of advice that Lewis gave to readers of literature is that they must receive a work of literature instead of using it. Lewis wrote, “A work of…art can be either ‘received’ or ‘used’. When we ‘receive’ it we exert our senses and imagination and various other powers according to a pattern invented by the artist. When we ‘use’ it we treat it as assistance for our own activities” (emphasis added). According to this line of thought, “The first demand any work of art makes upon us is surrender. Look. Listen. Receive. Get yourself out of the way.”

– False prophets come in sheep’s clothing, but don’t bear fruit. The beauty of fleece and the beauty of fruit are not the same.
– God, turn ten thousand women from Oprah to Esther with five magnificent words: „If I perish I perish.” (Esther 4:16)
– The mark of truth is God-exaltation, not self-exaltation. „The one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true.” (John 7:18)
