The Greatest Mystery of All
God is by far the greatest mystery of all. Yet we keep imagining we can understand both him and his ways.
Men who can drop their faith in the day of real emergency have never been really held by it. That is surely true; men who can drop their faith like a handkerchief have never known their faith as a strong and vital defense. . . . If our faith has ever meant anything vital, it will be as difficult to drop it as to drop our skin.
Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910) on 1 Corinthians 16.13
Never Be Thirsty Again
Christians must long to draw closer to God. If we are quenching our thirst at forbidden fountains, we have no reason to expect God to be satisfying. If we are not nourished by the bread from heaven, we will satiate ourselves with crumbs from the world. Once we have become addicted to the world’s nourishment, our appetite for God is spoiled.
Erwin Lutzer, Pastor to Pastor (Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, 1998), 82.
The Trial of Your Faith, More Precious Than Gold
The moment things go wrong . . . then you will know exactly the value of what you claim to believe.
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)
O Safe to the Rock That Is Higher Than I
Believe God’s word and power more than you believe your own feelings and experiences. Your Rock is Christ, and it is not the Rock which ebbs and flows, but your sea.
I Found Jesus (as if He were the one who was lost)
I didn’t invite Jesus into my heart; he gave me a new heart.
