All the religions that reject Jesus as God are without God. „The one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.” (Luke 10:16)
C. S. Lewis
– Through pride the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every vice; it’s the complete anti-God state of mind.
– There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes.
Commit to God whatever burden He has placed on you. Don’t just cast it aside, but put it over onto Him.
– God sent Jesus to seek us, not to tell us to seek for Him. (Luke 19,10)
– Born-Again-Christians don’t await judgment to know their eternal destiny. They belong to Jesus now and always.
Paul David Tripp
– Grace doesn’t free you to do whatever you want, but when you’ve done what you want, grace convicts, rescues, forgives and restores.
– Grace calls you to no longer live for you. So if you belong to God, it’s no longer your rules, your wisdom, your plan, your glory, but His.
Pain produces passion which leads to prayer which leads to intimacy with God.
– God isn’t thinking the cup of water is half empty or half full, He’s wondering which thirsty person we’ll give it away to
– When I get an overinflated view of myself, God reminds me that I’m driving on the rims most of the time.
