If our faith is going to be criticized, let it be for the right reasons. Not because we are too emotional, but because we are not emotional enough; not because our passions are so powerful, but because they are so puny; not because we are too affectionate, but because we lack a deep uncompromising affection for Jesus Christ.

We find stability in storms through what God has said. Your tendency will be to turn to another source for strength rather than the Word of God. Don't go there! The only anchor of stability that will hold you firm, no matter how intense the gale-force winds, is God's written Word.

John Wesley came to his mother one day and asked her to give him a definition of sin. This is what she said to him and it would do us well to 'think on this profound definition.' She said, 'Son, if anything weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God or takes away your relish for spiritual things: in short, if anything increases the authority or power of the flesh over the Spirit, that, to you John, is sin no matter how good it is in itself!'

Truth that is not undergirded by love makes the truth obnoxious and the possessor of it repulsive.

John Bunyan

I would say to my soul, 'O my soul, this is not the place of despair; this is not the time to despair in. As long as mine eyes can find a promise in the Bible, as long as there is a moment left me of breath or life in this world, so long will I wait or look for mercy, so long will I fight against unbelief and despair.'

It is a serious matter for those who are walking in the Spirit to trifle with God's voice or to be disobedient to His commands. Such disobedience may interrupt all communion with Him and hinder all prayer.

The Lord will not save those whom He cannot command.… We take Him for what He is—the anointed Savior and Lord who is King of kings and Lord of all lords! He would not be Who He is if He saved us and called us and chose us without the understanding that He can also guide and control our lives.

There is great peace in knowing that the one who taught us to pray 'your will be done' has every detail of our lives under control.

Nothing is impossible, when you put your trust in God! Nothing is impossible when you're trusting in His Word! Hearken to the voice of God to thee, "Is there anything to hard for Me?" Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word, for everything, Oh, everything, Yes, everything is possible …with God!

The closer we look at the God we worship and at what he is doing, the more we will ooh and aah. As our enthusiasm grows, we can, if we choose to, share our belief and delight [with those who are still in their sins] in a natural way.

Watchman Nee

We must realize that our service to God is not a favor or courtesy to God. It is not a matter of offering ourselves to God's work, but a matter of God being gracious to us and giving us a portion of His work.

What makes us "really good Christians" is trust in Jesus. Period. It's easy, though, to slide into the idea that our stock with God rises and falls with our ability to perform certain spiritual disciplines consistently. As soon as I think God loves me less because I've missed a quiet time, I'm in trouble. Suddenly my Christian life is resting not on trust in what Jesus did, but on my efforts at 6 a.m.

John Piper

The more you adjust or obscure Biblical doctrine in order to make Christian reality acceptable to unbelievers, the less Christian reality there is when they arrive. If you alter or obscure the Biblical portrait of God in order to attract converts, you do not get converts to God, you get converts to an illusion. That is not evangelism. That is deception.

Our servanthood to the Lord Jesus is to express itself in our servanthood to our fellows. The low position we take toward the Lord Jesus is judged by him by the low position we take in our relationship with our fellows. An unwillingness to serve others in costly, humbling ways he takes to be an unwillingness to serve him.

C.S. Lewis

Talk to me about the truth of religion and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolations of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand.
