If you obey for a thousand years, you’re no more accepted than when you first believed. Your acceptance is based on Christ’s righteousness.
Paul David Tripp, New Morning Mercies
Take heed how you hear: for upon your improving the grace you have, more shall be given, and you shall have abundance.
George Whitefield (1714 – 1770)
Be careful how you hear preaching this weekend!
It is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience, they are not the better for having heard the truth.
A. W. Tozer (1897 – 1963)
God will never reveal more truth about Himself to you, until you have obeyed what you know already.
Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. From such folly deliver us, O Lord.
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
