In fact, it literally means ‘whips.’ ” ~ 1 Minute Bible Love Notes

Man’s extremity then becomes God’s opportunity.”

— Billy Graham


Sunday, September 18, 2016

“To some, the image of a pale body glimmering on a dark night whispers of defeat. What good is a God who does not control his Son’s suffering? But another sound can be heard: the shout of a God crying out to human beings, “I LOVE YOU.” Love was compressed for all history in that lonely figure on the cross, who said that he could call down angels at any moment on a rescue mission, but chose not to – because of us. At Calvary, God accepted his own unbreakable terms of justice. Any discussion of how pain and suffering fit into God’s scheme ultimately leads back to the cross. ”
— Philip Yancey

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

“I wonder, then, why the last thing Jesus told us was to go into the world, making disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey all that He commanded?

Saturday, July 9, 2016

Friday, July 8, 2016

“Headlines weep, Lord, but nothing can stop people across the world on their knees who aren’t afraid of the darkness, who will storm against evil with a dawning, a rising of prayer, because we know Light is shattering the dark & we. will. be. part. of. it.
We won’t let fear or evil make us think there’s any chance that dark’s got even a snowball chance against unstoppable Light.
We who love much, we’ll keep praying much…
The greater the praying there is in the world right now, the mightier the power against evil everywhere.” ~ Ann Voskamp

You who laid the foundations of the earth,
So that it should not be moved forever,
You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
The waters stood above the mountains.
At Your rebuke they fled;
At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away.
They went up over the mountains;
They went down into the valleys,
To the place which You founded for them.
You have set a boundary that they may not pass over,
That they may not return to cover the earth.
(Psalm 104:5-9)

“I do know that waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts. Its easy to talk oneself into a decision that has no permanence – easier sometimes than to wait patiently.”
― Elisabeth Elliot

“Do you know what it would be like if you lived for a week without a conscience? It would be chaos. When the church has withdrawn itself from the public dialogue…then our conscience, our state’s conscience, our government’s conscience, our nation’s conscience, goes dark. When that happens, then we enter God’s judgement.” Jason Benham

“We are after a gospel that is resolutely centered on the atoning work of Christ and scaled to the glory of God…May we never assume that people understand this gospel but, instead, let’s faithfully live out and faithfully proclaim the explicit gospel with all the energy and compassion our great God and King has graciously given.” ~ Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel

“No sin, whatever it is, shall ruin any man if he shall come to Christ for mercy. Though you are black as hell’s midnight through iniquity, yet if you will come to Christ, He is ready to cleanse you. It is sin, after all, that lies at the door and blocks your way to the Savior.”
— Charles Haddon Spurgeon

— Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Thursday, May 12, 2016

“If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.”

— C.S. Lewis


Sunday, May 1, 2016

“I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him.”
— Ravi Zacharias

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

~ Jeremiah Burroughs


Sunday, April 24, 2016

Each vict’ry will help you some other to win;
Fight…onward, dark passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.”
~ Horatio R. Palmer


Friday, April 22, 2016

“Repentance grows as faith grows. Do not make any mistake about it; repentance is not a thing of days and weeks, a temporary penance to be got over as fast as possible! No; it is the grace of a lifetime, like faith itself. God’s little children repent, and so do the young men and the fathers. Repentance is the inseparable companion of faith.”
— Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Thursday, April 21, 2016

“Your enemies still figure into God’s plan. Their pulse is proof: God hasn’t given up on them. They may be out of God’s will, but not out of his reach. You honor God when you see them, not as his failures, but as his projects.”

Coram Deo.

Coram Deo is Latin for “In the presence of God”, conveying the idea that we live in the presence of, under the authority of, & to the glory of God.

Coram Deo…before the face of God.

Let’s live this, Ladies!

“The tongues of God’s people are meant to be set ablaze by the holy fire of heaven, achieving that which glorifies God. But a sanctified mouth is too unnatural to ever be coincidental. If we want it, we need to pursue it regularly and cooperate with God to receive it.”

“O prejudice, prejudice, prejudice, how many hast thou destroyed! [Wo]men who might have been wise have remained fools because they thought they were wise. Many judge what the gospel ought to be, but do not actually enquire as to what it is. They do not come to the Bible to obtain their views of religion, but they open that Book to find texts to suit the opinions which they bring to it. They are not open to the honest force of truth, and therefore are not saved by it.”
— Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Thursday, April 14, 2016

“If we can come up with a God we can fully explain, we have come up with a different God from the Bible’s. We must beware of recreating an image of God that makes us feel better. Of this I’m certain: If in our pursuit of greater knowledge God seems to have gotten smaller, we have been deceived.”
— Beth Moore


Wednesday, April 13, 2016

— Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Tuesday, April 12, 2016

“Whenever, wherever, however You want me, I’ll go. And I’ll begin this very minute. Lord, as I stand up from this place, and as I take my first step forward, will You consider this is a step toward complete obedience to You? I’ll call it the step of yes.”

Saturday, April 9, 2016

“My soul needed a place it could live. I longed for my defeats to be infrequent visitations, not my victories. Beloved, our personalized lands of earthly promise are places we’re invited by God to dwell in Christ. It’s high time we stopped dropping in and started taking up residency.”
— Beth Moore

Thursday, September 10, 2015

“Everybody has got to live for something, but Jesus is arguing that, if he is not that thing, it will fail you…. And Jesus says, “Unless you’re worshipping me, unless I’m the center of your life, unless you’re trying to get your spiritual thirst quenched through me and not through these other things, unless you see that the solution must come inside rather than just pass by outside, then whatever you worship will abandon you in the end.”

Friday, September 4, 2015

“No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.”

— G.K. Chesterton


Monday, August 31, 2015

“To stay away from Christianity because part of the Bible’s teaching is offensive to you assumes that if there is a God he wouldn’t have any views that upset you. Does that belief make sense?”

Friday, August 28, 2015

— Billy Graham


Tuesday, August 25, 2015

“New ideas are rightly suspect because they are often heretical. However, when biblical truths have been long neglected or ignored, attempts to present them may sound far-fetched. They may appear to be adding to or misinterpreting Scripture, when in fact they are simply portraying what Scripture has said all along but we’ve failed to grasp.”
— Randy Alcorn


Monday, August 24, 2015

~ Thomas Shepard


Wednesday, August 19, 2015

~ Oswald Chambers


Tuesday, August 18, 2015

~ John Owen


Saturday, August 15, 2015

“If we do not abide in prayer, we will abide in temptation. Let this be one aspect of our daily intercession: ‘God, preserve my soul, and keep my heart and all its ways so that I will not be entangled.’ When this is true in our lives, a passing temptation will not overcome us. We will remain free while others lie in bondage.”

There’s no human explanation for God’s incredible love.
God’s love is ‘unreasonable’— unexplainable!
He doesn’t love us because we are deserving.
He loves us even though we aren’t. ~ Gail Purath
God “does not treat us as our sins deserve” but loved us “while we were yet still sinners” (Psalm 103:10; Romans 5:8).

“Let your faith be bigger than your fear.”
— Francis Chan


Sunday, August 9, 2015

“Only God can give us a selfless love for others, as the Holy Spirit changes us from within. This is one reason we must receive Christ, for apart from His Spirit we can never be freed from the chains of selfishness, jealousy, and indifference. Will others see Christ’s love in your life today?”
— Billy Graham


Saturday, August 8, 2015

Thursday, August 6, 2015

“What our Heavenly Father wants us to do about our spiritual failures is like what our earthly father wants us to do about our earthly failures. When we fall off the horse, or the bike, or the high road to Heaven, we must simply climb on again as soon as we are aware of the fact that we have fallen off, rather than sitting there stewing in self-pity or self-hatred.”
— Peter Kreeft


Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Saturday, August, 1 2015

“Prayer is easier than we think. we want to think it is too hard or too high and holy for us, because that gives us an excuse for not doing it. This is false humility. We can all do it, even the most sinful, shallow, silly, and stupid of us.”

Thursday, July 30, 2015

“I also know that God works uniquely in various places and times, and I do think this explains part of the difference between here and there.

“Whenever we have more than we need, our natural assumption will be that it’s for our own consumption.”

Sunday, July 26, 2015

Many people are unchanged by their god because he’s a creation of their imagination. Their god changes according to popular opinion, has no expectations, no commands, and no righteous justice. But no one changes the Living God. He changes us (Isaiah 64:8). ~ Gail Purath


Saturday, July 25, 2015

“I hope we can go beyond our current understanding of the Holy Spirit and begin to commune openly … that our experience with Him would be day by day, even moment by moment. That by keeping in step with the Spirit, we might regularly fellowship over what He’s doing rather than what He did months or years ago.”

— Francis Chan


Tuesday, July 21, 2015

“Three reasons God commands us to pray correlate to our three deepest needs, the fundamental needs of the three powers of our soul: prayer gives truth to our mind, goodness to our will, and beauty to our heart. ‘The true, the good, and the beautiful’ are the three things we need and love the most, because they are the three attributes of God.”
— Peter Kreeft


Monday, July 20, 2015

Sunday, July 19, 2015

“God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.”

Friday, July 10, 2015

“Life is not a straight line leading from one blessing to the next and then finally to heaven. Life is a winding and troubled road. Switchback after switchback. And the point of biblical stories like Joseph and Job and Esther and Ruth is to help us feel in our bones (not just know in our heads) that God is for us in all these strange turns. God is not just showing up after the trouble and cleaning it up. He is plotting the course and managing the troubles with far-reaching purposes for our good and for the glory of Jesus Christ.”
~ John Piper

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Grace is not the opposite of effort; it is the opposite of earning.
Andy Bannister (RZIM ministries)


Monday, June 29, 2015

“The Christian Gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. It undermines both swaggering and sniveling. I cannot feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone. I do not think more of myself nor less of myself. Instead, I think of myself less.”
— Timothy Keller

“The reason that marriage is so painful and yet wonderful is because it is a reflection of the gospel, which is painful and wonderful at once. The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.”
— Timothy Keller


Saturday, June 20, 2015

“If your life is Christ, then your death will be only more of Christ, forever. If your life is only Christlessness, then your death will be only more Christlessness, forever. That’s not fundamentalism, that’s the law of non-contradiction.”
— Peter Kreeft


Friday, June 19, 2015

“In his warfare against God, Satan uses the human race, which God created and loved. So God’s forces of good and Satan’s forces of evil have been engaged in a deadly conflict from the dawn of our history. Unless world leaders and statesmen understand the true nature of this warfare, they will continue to be blind leaders of the blind.”
— Billy Graham

“We need to quit re-defining God’s character. He is a God of both perfect wrath and perfect love. If we can’t embrace all elements of Who He is, then we are creating a god in our own image and that god will always be less loving the True and Living God!!” ~ Gail Purath BibleLoveNotes.com

— Billy Graham

Sunday, June 14, 2015

“We are all insane. That is what original sin means. Sin is insanity. It is preferring finite joy to infinite joy, creatures to the Creator, an unhappy, Godless self to a happy, God-filled self Only God can save us from this disease. That is what the name “Jesus” means: ‘God saves’.”
— Peter Kreeft


Saturday, June 13, 2015

“Life is not a straight line leading from one blessing to the next and then finally to heaven. Life is a winding and troubled road. Switchback after switchback. And the point of biblical stories like Joseph and Job and Esther and Ruth is to help us feel in our bones (not just know in our heads) that God is for us in all these strange turns. God is not just showing up after the trouble and cleaning it up. He is plotting the course and managing the troubles with far-reaching purposes for our good and for the glory of Jesus Christ.”
~ John Piper


Friday, June 12, 2015

~ A.W. Tozer


Thursday, June 11, 2015

“…Why does God manifest His Presence to some and let multitudes of others struggle along in the half-light of imperfect Christian experience? Of course the will of God is the same for all. He has no favorites within His household. All He has ever done for any of His children He will do for all of His children. The difference lies not with God but with us.”
— A.W. Tozer


Wednesday, June 10, 2015

“Sin aims always at the utmost; every time it rises up to tempt or entice, might it have its own course, it would go out to the utmost sin in that kind. Every unclean thought or glance would be adultery if it could; every covetous desire would be oppression, every thought of unbelief would be atheism, might it grow to its head.” ~ John Owen

Monday, May 18, 2015

“Christians today like to play it safe. We want to put ourselves in situations where we are safe “even if there is no God.” But if we truly desire to please God, we cannot live that way. We have to do things that cost us during our life on earth but will be more than worth it in eternity.”

Friday, May 1, 2015

“Theology is like a map. Merely learning and thinking about the Christian doctrines, if you stop there, is less real and less exciting than the sort of thing my friend got in the desert. Doctrines are not God: they are only a kind of map. But that map is based on the experience of hundreds of people who really were in touch with God–experiences compared with which many thrills of pious feelings you and I are likely to get on our own are very elementary and very confused. And secondly, if you want to get any further you must use the map.”
~ C.S. Lewis

~ Jerry Bridges


Saturday, April 18, 2015

“We are not called to choose between a Christian life based on truth and doctrine or a life filled with spiritual power and experience. They go together.

~ Timothy Keller, Prayer


Friday, April 17, 2015

“Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You” (Ps. 63.3). Better than life! God invites mortal creatures—you and me—into a love relationship with the Son of glory. That, my friend, is the meaning of life. Let’s partake. Fully. Completely.”

— Corrie ten Boom


Tuesday, April 7, 2015

“I fear me that the Christian church is far more likely to lose her integrity in these soft and silken days than in those rougher times. We must be awake now, for we traverse the enchanted ground, and are most likely to fall asleep to our own undoing, unless our faith in Jesus be a reality, and our love to Jesus a vehement flame. Many in these days of easy profession are likely to prove tares, and not wheat; hypocrites with fair masks on their faces, but not the true born children of the living God.”
~ C.H. Spurgeon


Monday, April 6, 2015

“I have been used for many years to study the histories of other times and to examine and weigh the evidence of those who have written about them, and I know of no one fact in the history of mankind which is proved by better and fuller evidence of every sort, to the understanding of a fair inquirer, than the great sign which God has given us that Christ died and rose again from the dead.”

“But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.” Isaiah 53: 5,6,7


Friday, April 3, 2015

Friday, March 27, 2015

“Do you know what hurts so very much? It’s love. Love is the strongest force in the world, and when it is blocked that means pain. There are two things we can do when this happens. We can kill that love so that it stops hurting. But then of course part of us dies, too. Or we can ask God to open up another route for that love to travel.”

Our mixed up world says: “Philosophically, you can believe anything, so long as you do not claim it to be true. Morally, you can practice anything, so long as you do not claim that it is a “better” way. Religiously, you can hold to anything, so long as you do not bring Jesus Christ into it.”

“Our salvation is a free gift of grace that demanded the work of Jesus alone. God made sure, however, that much of our fulfillment would involve the glorious pursuit of God and His goals so our souls would be filled and thrilled in the constant discoveries.

“So where does one begin? With self-crucifixion. In effect, we go to our own funeral and bury the self-will so that God’s will can reign supremely in our hearts. Our will has no power to do God’s will until it first dies to its own desires and the Holy Spirit brings a fresh power within.”

Sunday, March 1, 2015

“Relativism poses as humble by saying: “We are not smart enough to know what the truth is—or if there is any universal truth.” It sounds humble. But look carefully at what is happening. It’s like a servant saying: I am not smart enough to know which person here is my master—or if I even have a master. The result is that I don’t have a master and I can be my own master. That is in reality what happens to relativists: In claiming to be too lowly to know the truth, they exalt themselves as supreme arbiter of what they can think and do. This is not humility. This is the essence of pride.”

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

“In Romans 8:13 Paul says, “If you live according to the flesh you will die.” How could he talk that way to the “saints” at Rome?
Thousands of pastors today would never talk that way to their people. Which is one reason why people don’t feel anything huge, eternal, life-shaking, awesome is at stake in this service or this message. Paul could talk that way because his understanding was that the way people receive and respond to the word of God confirms what kind of person they are: truly born of God, or not. . . .”

“Christian freedom doesn’t mean the right to do whatever we please; it means we have the privilege of following Christ and doing what pleases Him. True freedom is life controlled by truth and motivated by love.”

“The Samaritan woman grasped what He said with fervor that came from an awareness of her real need. The transaction was fascinating. She has come with a bucket. He sent her back with a spring of living water. She had come as a reject. He sent her back being accepted by God Himself. She came wounded. He sent her back whole.”
— Ravi Zacharias

“A pilot without his chart, a scholar without his book, and a soldier without his sword, are alike ridiculous. But, above all these, it is absurd for one to think of being a Christian, without knowledge of the word of God and some skill to use this weapon.”
~ William Gurnall


Wednesday, February 11, 2015

“Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge to Satan.”
~ John Bunyan



Tuesday, February 10, 2015

“The glory of the gospel is that when the Church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it. It is then that the world is made to listen to her message, though it may hate it at first. That is how revival comes.”
~M. Lloyd Jones


Monday, February 9, 2015

“If the church cannot extend grace to sexual sinners, we’ve lost the heart of the gospel. And if we cannot tell people to stay away from 50 Shades of Grey, we’ve lost our minds.”

— Oswald Chambers


Wednesday, February 4, 2015

“Though in its beginning prayer is so simple that the feeblest child can pray, it is at the same time the highest & holiest work to which man can rise. Prayer is fellowship with the Unseen & Most Holy One. The powers of the eternal world have been placed at prayer’s disposal…
It is to prayer that God has given the right to take hold of Him & His strength.”
~ Andrew Murray, With Christ in the School of Prayer


Tuesday, February 3, 2015

“Let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that pride is a problem only for the lost. The most effective means the enemy has to keep believers from being full of the Spirit is to keep us full of ourselves. No wonder the Bible states and restates that God hates pride. It is the enemy of genuine ministry. It is the end of many homes.”
— Beth Moore


Monday, February 2, 2015

“If we are to say no to covetousness, we must learn to say yes to contentment. This involves learning to be content with what we have (Hebrews 13:5). Much of our discontentment may be traced to expectations that are essentially selfish and more often than not completely unrealistic.”

Friday, January 23, 2015

“The fruit of the Spirit is fundamentally relational. Rather than originating with us, it flows to us from our union with Christ, and it flows beyond us to bring us into fellowship with others. The secret of this flow – and our unity with God and others – is humility.”
~ Jerry Bridges

“By the time we were knit in our mothers’ wombs, our lives were like open books before Him–every sentence read, every paragraph indented, every chapter titled, every page numbered. He knew it all in advance–all the sin, all the selfishness, every weakness. Yet He chose to love us–lavishly.”
— Beth Moore


Tuesday, January 20, 2015

~ Leonardo da Vinci

“But the fruit of the Spirit is…patience…” Galatians 5:22

“Obedience is the road to freedom, humility the road to pleasure, unity the road to personality.”
~ C.S. Lewis


Friday, January 9, 2015

“God is never a God of discouragement. When you have a discouraging spirit or train of thought in your mind, you can be sure it is not from God. He sometimes brings pain to his children — conviction over sin, or repentance over fallenness, or challenges that scare us, or visions of his holiness that overwhelm us. But God never brings discouragement.”
~ John Ortberg

Monday, December 29, 2014

“There is nothing in all the universe which does not in some way vibrate within the heart of God. No creature suffers alone; He suffers with His creatures and through it is in the process of bringing His sons and daughters through the cleansing and glorifying fires, without which the created cannot be made the very children of God, partakers of the divine nature and peace.”
— George MacDonald


Sunday, December 28, 2014

Thursday, December 25, 2014

“And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife,[a] who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2: 1 – 7 NKJV

Merry Christmas, friends. May your Christmas shine brightly with the love and presence of Immanuel, God with us.

“There is no hope at all except for the hope of the incarnation.”
~ St. Augustine


Monday, December 22, 2014

“What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself.”
~Blaise Pascal, Pensées


Sunday, December 21, 2014

“I fear you will never arrive at an understanding of God so long as you cannot bring yourself to see the good that often comes as a result of pain. For there is nothing, from the lowest, weakest tone of suffering to the loftiest acme of pain, to which God does not respond.”
— George MacDonald


Saturday, December 20, 2014

“Where,oh,where are the eternity-conscious believers? Where are the souls white-hot for God because they fear His holy name and presence and so live with eternity’s values in view?”

That one day we shall thank thee perfectly
For pain and hope and all that led or drove
Us back into the bosom of thy love.”

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4


Tuesday, December 16, 2014

“The Creator created a friend who became an enemy and so the Creator became one of the created. The enemy nailed the Creator to a tree and the Creator bled out oceans of grace. The created sealed the tomb but the Creator became life – for the created. Christ’s birth, death, life – the triune God’s three-fold plan. It’s this Christmas story. It’s the story of redemption.” ~ Jodi Greene

“A man may easier see without eyes, speak without a tongue, than truly mortify one sin without the Spirit.”
~John Owen


Friday, December 5, 2014

“Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word.”
~J.C. Ryle


Thursday, December 4, 2014

“No one sets out to become an apostate – it’s never the result of one abrupt, drastic turn away from the Lord. Instead, apostasy is most often the product of a pattern of sinful compromises that harden and gradually steer a professing believer away from the truth.”

“One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.”
~ John Piper


Saturday, November 29, 2014

“People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.”
~D.A. Carson

“That which begins not with prayer, seldom winds up with comfort.”
~ John Flavel


Tuesday, November 25, 2014

“I have always considered that the sum and substance of the gospel lies in that word Substitution,—Christ standing in the stead of man. If I understand the gospel, it is this: I deserve to be lost for ever; the only reason why I should not be damned is, that Christ was punished in my stead… By looking to Him, I received all the faith which inspired me with confidence in His grace; and the word that first drew my soul—”Look unto Me,”—still rings its clarion note in my ears. There I once found conversion, and there I shall ever find refreshing and renewal.”

~Charles Spurgeon


Monday, November 24, 2014

“To ask that God’s love should be content with us as we are is to ask that God should cease to be God: because He is what He is, His love must, in the nature of things, be impeded and repelled by certain stains in our present character, and because He already loves us He must labor to make us lovable.”
~ C.S. Lewis


Sunday, November 23, 2014

“We have grown so accustomed to the idea of divine love…that we no longer sense the awe that God’s coming should awaken in us.”
~Dietrich Bonhoeffer


Saturday, November 22, 2014

“It is not intellectual knowledge about God that quenches man’s ancient heart-thirst, but the very Person and Presence of God Himself. These come to us through Christian doctrine, but they are more than doctrine. Christian truth is designed to lead us to God, not to serve as a substitute for God.” — A.W. Tozer

~Jerry Bridges


Wednesday, November 19, 2014

“There is nothing which I know of which is more unscriptural, and which is more dangerous to the soul, than to divide doctrine from life… The reason for this is that if your life and your mode of living is not the outcome of your doctrine, it is not Christian living; it is something else.”
~D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones


Tuesday, November 18, 2014

“God tests us in order that we may know whether our faith is genuine or not. God brings trials into our lives to give true believers assurance and to reveal the lack of saving faith to false professors. Trials, like nothing else, reveal the truth about our faith. Holy practice under trials, is the highest evidence of sincerity to a professing Christian’s own conscience. The mere fact that at one time in the past the person ‘prayed to receive Christ’ is not proof of saving faith.” –Notes by Michael Stohlmeyer on “Jonathan Edwards — Religious Affections”


Monday, November 17, 2014

“The whole Bible supports the idea. God is speaking. Not God spoke, but God is speaking. He is by His nature continuously articulate. He fills the world with His speaking Voice.”
— A.W. Tozer


Sunday, November 16, 2014

“Authentic faith cannot help but act. If we really believe what the Word says about God and about us, our decisions and behaviors will reflect it. How we behave overwhelmingly flows from what we deeply believe.”
— Beth Moore

Thursday, November 13, 2014

“There’s no doubt, though, that fighting the good fight of faith takes energy! But then so do selfpity, anger, unforgiveness, and self-loathing. Each of us must decide where we’re going to put our energy when the battle grows fierce.”

“The pastor ought to have two voices: one, for gathering the sheep; and another, for driving away wolves.”
~John Calvin


Saturday, November 8, 2014

“Christian living is supernatural or it is nothing. The church is made of “living stones built into a spiritual house” (1 Peter 2:5). “Spiritual” is the opposite of merely “natural.” It means inhabited and guided and empowered by the supernatural Spirit of Christ.”
~ John Piper


Friday, November 7, 2014

“Why are there wars in the world? Why is there this constant international tension? What is the matter with the world? Why war and all the unhappiness and turmoil and discord amongst men? According to this Beatitude, there is only one answer to these questions-sin. Nothing else; just sin.”

~Francis Schaeffer


Wednesday, November 5, 2014

“Life is all about to whom and where you look for satisfaction of heart. The shape and direction of your life are determined by what you tell yourself will make you content… there is grace for this struggle — grace that battles for your heart, grace that is more powerful than the draw of any dream. Own the dangerous dreams of your fickle heart and run to the grace that is yours in Jesus.”
~Paul Tripp


Tuesday, November 4, 2014

“The simple fact of history is that the greatest evil has always resulted from denial of God, not pursuit of Him. Dennis Prager has noted, “In this [20th] century alone, more innocent people have been murdered, tortured, and enslaved by secular ideologies, nazism and communism, than by all religions in history.””
~Gregory Koukl

“Jesus. The very name at which every knee will one day bow. The very name every tongue will one day confess. A name that has no parallel in my vocabulary or yours…A name by which I’ve made every single prayerful petition of my life. A name that has meant my absolute salvation, not only from eternal destruction, but from myself. A name with power like no other name. Jesus. What a beautiful name.”
~ Beth Moore, Jesus the One and Only

“Let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that pride is a problem only for the lost. The most effective means the enemy has to keep believers from being full of the Spirit is to keep us full of ourselves. No wonder the Bible states and restates that God hates pride. It is the enemy of genuine ministry. It is the end of many homes.”
— Beth Moore


Thursday, October 23, 2014

“Jesus waits on the porch. He stands on the threshold. He taps … and calls. He waits for you to open the door. To pray is to open it. “Prayer is the hand of faith on the door handle of your heart.” The willing pull. The happy welcome to Jesus: “Come in, O King. Come in.” The kitchen is messy, but come in. I didn’t clean up, but come in. I’m not much of a conversationalist, but come in. We speak. He listens. He speaks. We listen. This is prayer at its purest form. God changes his people through such moments.”

“Harboring bitterness against people is actually confessing their sin to myself, over and over again. Anger is akin to confessing their sin to God, dissatisfied that he hasn’t done something and placing myself in his position as judge.” ― Paul David Tripp


Monday, October 20, 2014

“I have given Him permission to take every one of my memories captive to Christ, and now I can no longer see my abuses and sins in their own accord or in the hands of Satan. Now I see them in the healing, forgiving, nail-scarred hands of Jesus where He is cleansing them and transforming them into the stuff of mercy.”
— Beth Moore

Saturday, October 18, 2014

“When puny and sinful man declares that he will define reality by his logic, he is usurping from God the right of definition. God the Creator is thereby God the Definer, and attempts at independent definitions are usurpations of the prerogatives of God.”
~Cornelius Van Til


Friday, October 17, 2014

“You are a city set on a hill. Your lives are to draw the observation of others. The occasion of this must be something very remarkable and distinguishing. The lives of Christians should stand out. There should be something about professing believers that attracts the attention of other people…Jesus wants His people to stand out; it is God’s purpose that we be like a city set on a hill.” –Notes by Mike Stohlmeyer on Jonathan Edwards “Sermons and Discourses–A City Set On A Hill”

“When we have received Christ as our Savior, Satan is forced to work from the outside rather than the inside. Thus, he manipulates outside influences to affect the inside decision-makers of the heart and mind.”

Thursday, October 2, 2014

“[G]entleness is essential to Christian living…(gentleness is) one of the few indisputable evidences of the Holy Spirit alive and well within someone… Looked at another way, nowhere in the New Testament’s lists of spiritual gifts is gentleness identified as one such gift. It is not a gift of the Spirit for a few. It is the fruit of the Spirit for all. To be gentle is to become who we were meant to be; that is, to return to who we once were, in Eden.”

“Christ came to set the captive free—no matter what kind of yoke binds them. He came to bind up the brokenhearted—no matter what broke the heart. He came to open the eyes of the blind—no matter what veiled their vision.” — Beth Moore


Thursday, September 25, 2014

“True love is protective of what is valuable; it is rightly jealous for single-minded affection. Thus, God is jealously protective of the loving relationship for which all human beings were designed; his jealousy springs from love. God is appropriately jealous when humans turn away from the source of ultimate satisfaction and joy and turn to God-substitutes that can’t satisfy.” ~ Paul Copan


Wednesday, September 24, 2014

“I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day.” Abraham Lincoln

“I am at last convinced that it is better for me to do something for God, though it be imperfect, than to be guilty of perpetual delays in hopes of better pleasing myself.”
~ Isaac Watts


Monday, September 22, 2014

“If you conceive of God as ten thousand times more gracious and loving than any friend you have in the world, it will make you love him above all. This takes away weariness in duty, and gives more delight in prayer and meditation…If you fix deep in your understanding the natural goodness of God, even this will fall far short of God’s actual graciousness.”

Beth Moore Quote


Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6


Tuesday, September 16, 2014

“Love motivates self-less jealousy. God is jealous on our behalf. He is jealous for us to know the One True God. He is jealous for us to be in a posture of blessing. He is jealous for us to be kept from the evil one. He is jealous for us to be ready for our Bridegroom. Jealousy for someone’s best is of God. Jealousy of someone’s best is of the enemy.”
~ Beth Moore

If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

“If we would be empowered for life and ministry, it will only happen as we are on our knees at the foot of the cross.” ~ Douglas B. Wicks


Saturday, September 13, 2014

“Let us beware of tinkering with our inner life in hope ourselves to rend the veil. God must do everything for us. Our part is to yield and trust. We must confess, forsake, repudiate the self-life, and then reckon it crucified. But we must be careful to distinguish lazy `acceptance’ from the real work of God. We must insist upon the work being done. We dare not rest content with a neat doctrine of self-crucifixion. That is to imitate Saul and spare the best of the sheep and the oxen.”
~ A.W. Tozer


Friday, September 12, 2014

“The cross is rough, and it is deadly, but it is effective. It does not keep its victim hanging there forever. There comes a moment when its work is finished and the suffering victim dies. After that is resurrection glory and power, and the pain is forgotten for joy that the veil is taken away and we have entered in actual spiritual experience the Presence of the living God.”
~ A.W. Tozer

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pa., in 2002

“The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic, and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.” – New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani

Monday, August 25, 2014

“We ought to contemplate providence not as curious and fickle persons are wont to do but as a ground of confidence and excitement to prayer. When he informs us that the hairs of our head are all numbered it is not to encourage trivial speculations but to instruct us to depend on the fatherly care of God which is exercised over these frail bodies.”
~John Calvin

“Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself but because it contradicts them.” ~ Paul Harvey


Saturday, August 23, 2014

“Pride is the worst viper that is in the heart; it is the first sin that ever entered into the universe, and it lies lowest of all in the foundation of the whole building of sin, and is the most secret, deceitful and unsearchable in its ways of working, of any lusts whatsoever; it is ready to mix with everything; and nothing is so hateful to God, and contrary to the spirit of the Gospel, or of so dangerous consequence; and there is no one sin that does so much let in the Devil into the hearts of the saints, and exposes them to his delusions.”
~ Jonathan Edwards

“Is It Unloving to Speak of Hell? If you were giving some friends directions to Denver and you knew that one road led there but a second road ended at a sharp cliff around a blind corner, would you talk only about the safe road? No. You would tell them about both, especially if you knew that the road to destruction was wider and more traveled. In fact, it would be terribly unloving not to warn them about that other road.”

“Lord, in a crazy world, teach us to carpe diem, to seize the day, to seize You,
seize the moments, seize the hope, seize the grace,
seize the gift of breath in the lung now.
Teach us to carpe diem & number our days, number our blessings, number the small graces so we don’t go numb, to count all the ways You love,
so we don’t lose count of the good and lose our brave way.” ~ Ann Voskamp

Friday, August 1, 2014

“When you are trying to discern whether God or Satan is the author of a hardship, one of your best clues is whether sin is involved. God never entices us to sin, nor does he employ sin or perversion as a means of molding us into the image of Christ. Impossible!”
— Beth Moore


Thursday, July 31, 2014

“Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them. ” ~ John Calvin

Thursday, July 10, 2014

“Many people visualize a God who sits comfortably on a distant throne, remote, aloof, uninterested, and indifferent to the needs of mortals, until, it may be, they can badger him into taking action on their behalf. Such a view is wholly false. The Bible reveals a God who, long before it even occurs to man to turn to him, while man is still lost in darkness and sunk in sin, takes the initiative, rises from his throne, lays aside his glory, and stoops to seek until he finds him.”
~ John R.W. Stott

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

“Prayer must fasten all the other parts of our Christian armour. There are other duties of religion, and of our stations in the world, but we must keep up times of prayer. Though set and solemn prayer may not be seasonable when other duties are to be done, yet short pious prayers darted out, always are so. We must use holy thoughts in our ordinary course. A vain heart will be vain in prayer.” ~ Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary on Ephesians 6:17

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

The Greek word for what’s translated as “assurance” or “substance” in Hebrews 11:1 is hypostasis, and means “under a guaranteed agreement (title-deed). It’s a legitimate claim because it literally is under a legal standing.”
“For the believer, hypostasis, or ‘title of possession’, is the Lord’s guarantee to fulfill the faith He inbirths. Indeed we are only entitled to what God grants faith for.”

Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!

And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” Colossians 2:9,13-15
