God blesses a humble heart, not an arrogant mind. You can be straight as a gun barrel doctrinally & just as empty spiritually.
A W Tozer
When we substitute worship with work, we are failing God.
The galaxies are like a garment that grows old, a shirt God will take off. But He is ever young and old. (Heb. 1:11-12)
C. S. Lewis
In Gethsemane the holiest of all petitioners prayed three times that a certain cup might pass from Him. It did not.
When God looks at those who believe, He doesn’t see them; He sees the One who surrounds them. Victory is secure.
Christian life may look tame, but then so does an electric cable till you touch it.
God wants you to be in a much closer relationship with Himself than simply receiving His gifts.
Paul David Tripp
– The opening of your eyes to see yourself with accuracy is one of the long-term projects of transforming grace.
– The blinding power of sin means you do not know you as well as you think you do. You need others to be your instruments of seeing.
– Fellowship is not a luxury because your walk with God is not an individual pursuit, but a community project.
Challenge injustice with the same raw efficiency as others use to ignore it.
