Happiness, like godliness, is a choice.You are as happy and as close to God as you choose to be.
A W Tozer
What good is our busy religion if we’ve lost majesty, reverence, worship – an awareness of the divine?
D. A. Carson
If it is hard to accept a rebuke, even a private one, it is harder still to administer one in loving humility.
Say among the nations, ‘The LORD reigns!'” (Ps. 96:10)
Say it with tweets. Say it with blogs. With texting and with tongue.
C. S. Lewis
As the king governs by his executive, so Reason in man must rule the mere appetites by means of the ‘spirited element.’
Money can buy you a bed but not sleep. A house, but not a home. Luxuries, but not life. Stuff, but not a Savior.
The gospel affects us, stops us in our tracks, spins us round, and then gets us going – in the right direction.
The primary word in the spiritual vocabulary is now.
Paul David Tripp
– The eternal rest of the Gospel is this: God’s affection for you isn’t rooted in your performance, but on Christ’s performance on your behalf.
– You don’t obey God in the hope that you will be loved, you obey God out of deep gratitude for the fact that you have been loved.
– For the believer obedience is not an option, but it is also not a payment for love received.
Stand up like a mountain; have faith like a rock; love like an avalanche.
