Richard Baxter

Remember the perfections of that God whom you worship, that He sees all you do and is always present with you, and all things are naked and open to him with whom we have to do. The knowledge of God, and the remembrance of his all-seeing presence, are the most powerful means against hypocrisy.

You either love God or forget it. Either/or.” And when it comes to your spirit, Scripture teaches categorically that it’s either dead in sin or alive in Christ. …The whole issue about being “in Christ” is not some sort of theological gobblety-goop! It’s the real deal. What we think on a heart level determines how we choose to act and respond in a fallen world.

Jesus, our Savior

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16 ESV)

The answer to the problem of sin is Jesus. Through Him, God can bring healing to our broken world. But in order for that to happen, we must have faith in Him. Trust Jesus and let Him transform the world… beginning with you!

To be filled with the Spirit of God means first, repentance, then resistance of the devil, and then renewal. It means there’s not one room in your body, soul, or spirit that’s off-limits to God. There’s not one closet He doesn’t have a key to.

There are no limits to what God can do through us, no matter what age we happen to be. Even a young child can serve Christ.… God says that we can serve Him at any age in life. That is a comforting thought! There is no mandatory retirement from serving the Lord!

Sin is more than just a problem in our lives. Many of our troubles are the consequences of sin. Sin always carries a consequence. Some of us may be suffering consequences for many years. Aren’t you tired of living with these consequences? God has a cure — repentance!

When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it, for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow. It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay. (Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 ESV)

Heaven’s calendar has seven Sundays a week. God sanctifies each day. He conducts holy business at all hours and in all places. He uncommons the common by turning kitchen sinks into shrines, cafés into convents, and nine-to-five workdays into spiritual adventures.

No matter what you may be facing today, put your eyes on King Jesus. He loves you and wants to work miracles in your life today. Talk to Him about your problems, your hurts and your cares. He really does care for you. and He is ready, willing and able to make a difference and work all things together for good.

Men are initiative-takers because God is an initiative-taking God. [The apostle John said,] "We love because he first loved us." Men, lead the way … in love, in forgiveness, in sacrifice, and in righteousness, just as God, in Christ, led the way for you.

How did Christ defend Himself against the onslaught of temptation? He used the Word of God. That’s why we need to know Scripture. The psalmist wrote, “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11 ESV)

David (the Psalmist)

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. (Psalm 121:1-3 ESV)

Although humans have been enamored with themselves since the Garden of Eden, there is no generation in history that has been so preoccupied with self, even to the point of making self the key to solving all of mankind's problems.

The question is not whether we will suffer but how we will respond to it when it happens. A proper view of suffering requires a proper view of God and His work in our lives.
