The most important daily habit we can possess is to remind ourselves of the gospel.
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
We were created to be a help to each other; God has made no one so independent as not to need the assistance of another.
George Whitefield (1714 – 1770)
The vitality and genuineness of corporate worship is to a large degree dependent upon the vitality of our individual private worship. If we aren’t spending time daily worshiping God, we’re not apt to contribute to the corporate experience of worship. If we aren’t worshiping God during the week, how can we expect to genuinely participate in it on Sunday morning?
Jerry Bridges, The Joy of Fearing God, pp. 239-240
The ultimate test of our spirituality is the measure of our amazement at the grace of God.
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)
No man is truly crucified until he accepts that crucifixion as coming from the hand of God. Otherwise, it amounts to no more than an ugly incident taking place between ugly people.
