Sunday Quotes

Thousands and tens of thousands have sought for pardon at the mercy-seat of Christ, and not one has ever returned to say that he sought in vain. Sinners of every name and nation—sinners of every sort and description—have knocked at the door of the fold, and none have ever been refused admission. If the way which the Gospel sets before us were a new and untraveled way—we might well feel faint-hearted. But it is not so. It is an old path. It is a path worn by the feet of many pilgrims, and a path in which the footsteps are all one way. The treasury of Christ’s mercies has never been found empty. The well of living waters has never proved dry. - J.C. Ryle

So often we have a kind of vague, wistful longing that the promises of Jesus should be true. The only way really to enter into them is to believe them with the clutching intensity of a drowning man. - William Barclay

Unfathomable oceans of grace are in Christ for you. Dive and dive again, you will never come to the bottom of these depths. How many millions of dazzling pearls and gems are at this moment hid in the deep recesses of the ocean caves. - Robert Murray M'Cheyne

Nobody ever got anything from God on the grounds that he deserved it. Haven fallen, man deserves only punishment and death. So if God answers prayer it's because God is good. From His goodness, His lovingkindness, His good-natured benevolence, God does it! That's the source of everything. - A. W. Tozer

Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search any further for security. - Elisabeth Elliot

Sunday Quotes

The certainty that God is always near us, present in all parts of His world, closer to us than our thoughts, should maintain us in a state of happiness most of the time. But not all the time. It would be less than honest to promise every believer continual jubilee and less than realistic to expect it. As a child may cry out in pain even when sheltered in its mother's arms, so a Christian may sometime know what it is to suffer even in the conscious presence of God. Though "always rejoicing," Paul admitted that he was sometimes sorrowful, and for our sakes Christ experienced strong crying and tears though He never left the bosom of the Father (John 1:18). - A. W. Tozer

If through faith you have placed your eternal destiny in the loving hands of Jesus Christ, you can be sure that God is at work, shaping the events and circumstances of your life into a beautiful mosaic that will reveal His Son to the men and women around you. His hand is on you, as it has been since before you were born. - Chuck Smith

Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search any further for security. Elisabeth Elliot

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow. G. K. Chesterton

Remember it is the very time for faith to work when sight ceases. The greater the difficulties, the easier for faith; as long as there remain certain natural prospects, faith does not get on even as easily as where natural prospects fail. - George Mueller

We could never be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world. - Helen Keller

Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work. - Peter Marshall

Sunday Quotes

An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others. - A. W. Tozer

God never made out a long contract that says, “Abide by all my terms and I will love you and bless you; but if you violate even the smallest provision, it’s all null and void and you are out of My kingdom!” Christians are not bound by any heavy contract to God. Paul declared that the only thing that constrained him was the love of Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 5:14). - Chuck Smith

Do you ever think, God can't love me today. I don't even love myself. I am miserable. Does God love us less when we have failed? No. Our standing before God is not based on our performance, but upon our faith in what Jesus has done on the cross. Because of Him, we are blessed with a beautiful, stable, loving relationship with our Father. - Chuck Smith

If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed.
If you look within, you’ll be depressed.
If you look at Christ, you’ll be at rest. - Corrie Ten Boom

God never made a promise that was too good to be true. Dwight L. Moody

Robert Dick Wilson, who mastered over 45 different languages in his lifetime, in order to read the manuscripts of the Bible in their original languages, after a dissertation to his students on the complete trustworthiness of Scripture, said with tears: “Young men, there are many mysteries in this life I do not pretend to understand, many things hard to explain. But I can tell you this morning with the fullest assurance, that, ‘Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.’” - From the Book, “Which Bible,” by David Fuller

God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with him. - Jim Elliot
