The heart overflows with gladness, and leaps and dances for the joy it has found in God. In this experience the Holy Spirit is active, and has taught us in the flash of a moment the deep secret of joy. You will have as much joy and laughter in life as you have faith in God.
Martin Luther (1483-1546)
To worship is to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God, to feed the mind with the truth of God, to purge the imagination by the beauty of God, to open the heart to the love of God, to devote the will to the purpose of God.
William Temple in James Montgomery Boice, Whatever Happened to the Gospel of Grace? (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Books, 2001), 175.
It is the supreme prerogative of the preacher, not to prove that God exists, but to unfold His character and beauty.
F. W. Boreham (1871-1959)
The ultimate test of our spirituality is the measure of our amazement at the grace of God.
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Christian Unity
The infinity of God exceeds all the significance and comprehension that names can furnish.
Gregory of Nyssa (335-394)
Every hour of every day, God is richly blessing us; both when we sleep and when we wake His mercy waits upon us.
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
How unspeakably wonderful to know that all our concerns are held in hands the bled for us.
John Newton (1725 – 1807)
