Faith is believing you will receive mercy, while knowing you deserve justice.
We did not choose this battle, but it is come.
-Pendragon (the movie)
When our will goes hand in hand with God’s then are we fellow workers with him in the affairs of the universe—not mere discoverers of his ways, watching at the outskirts of things, but laborers with him at the heart of them.
I have a great need for Christ: I have a great Christ for my need.
There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
The path you take with your feet should never contradict the conviction of your heart.
Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me....That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.
...there is only one thing that can wash the blood from our hands, the blood from His.
-R.C. Sproul Jr.
Forgiveness is the oil that keeps the machinery of the Christian home and church running smoothly. In a world where even those who have been declared perfect in Christ sin, there is much to forgive. Christians who must work together closely find themselves denting each others' fenders, now and then taking out a taillight or two, and at times even having head-on collisions. Under such conditions, forgiveness is what keeps things from breaking down completely.
Christ went more willingly to the cross than we do to the throne of grace.
Living becomes an awesome business when you realise that you spend every moment of your life in the sight and company of an omniscient, omnipresent Creator.
