“True thankfulness is more than being grateful for what we possess. It’s an attitude that permeates our relationship with the Lord so that we may serve Him with gladness and joy.” ~ Gladly
“During that week before I had confessed to my dad that I had indeed lied to him, he did not throw me out of his house; he didn’t disown me or write me out of his will! I was STILL his child, but our fellowship was broken…” ~ The Forgiveness of a Father
“Salvation requires faith in the true God: the God described by… The Bible. If we do not believe in the God of the Bible, then we are not saved by the God of the Bible… If we do not like His salvation plan, we are free to construct our own god from the parts of the scripture we find convenient to our lifestyle and philosophy. But, make no mistake, that god is NOT the God of the Bible.” ~ One Bible = One Belief: The Dilemma of Biblical Authenticity
“Despite the damage sin does to us spiritually and physically, the Blood of Jesus Christ washes us clean and makes us new. From human eyes, it might not look like much, but we have everything we need to build up our spiritual wall of salvation. And that wall is indestructible, because God is its architect.” ~ BUILDING A SPIRITUAL WALL: Five Imperatives of Spiritual Growth
“…God is actively protecting us from the influence and consequence of evil in the world around us. Therefore, when we love anything that is evil, we are striving against God’s work in our lives. That is, we are holding on to evil instead of allowing God to eliminate its influence from our lives.” ~ Working with God is Less Work
“It is the combination of God’s mercy (as He patiently works with us) and His Word (as it transforms our mindset) that ultimately breaks the power of sin over our lives… If God has started the transformation process in us, He won’t stop working (even if He has to use with trials to get it done). God won’t quit on you… so don’t quit on yourself!!!” ~ Sin doesn’t Come in Sizes
“…our faith in God may be tested to the ultimate. How will we come out on the other side of difficult situations? Will we emerge from our troubles and trials giving Christ the victory for having clung to Him and the promises in His Word?” ~ Precious Promises Prevail over Persistent Problems.
“Our weaknesses and fears will not stop God from calling us to serve Him. Our weaknesses don’t matter, because God is sending us out in His unfailing strength. And, our fears are of no concern, because He has given us all we need to triumph over the adversities we will face. The only thing that does matter is our OBEDIENCE! How will we respond to God’s call?” ~ Look up and Step Out
