We are not meant to embrace moments, but to embrace God. Moments are not always good; God is never anything else but good. Moments are simply the place where we meet him. – John Ortberg from “God Is Closer Than You Think”
“God with all His omnipotence at His disposal never wastes anything. He never sends a flood if a shower will do; never sends a fortune if a shilling will do; never sends an army if a man will do. And He never thunders if a whisper will do.” ― F.W. Boreham
“Have you been holding back from a risky, costly course to which you know in your heart God has called you? Hold back no longer. Your God is faithful to you, and adequate for you. You will never need more than He can supply, and what He supplies, both materially and spiritually, will always be enough for the present.” – J.I. Packer
If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, then error will be. If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendency. If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will. If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of this land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end. – Daniel Webster
“The people to whom the Word and God’s miracles were given lost him in the bustle of ceremony. His parents lost Jesus because they didn’t completely understand who he was. Now we have lost him because we prefer to live a lie rather than the truth; we prefer to think that we are gods ourselves when, in truth, we are the glory of creation gone wrong. We have set up a context of rebellion within ourselves against him and are therefore no longer on the side of truth. Jesus makes a sweeping statement that our true intentions regarding truth or falsehood are revealed by what we do with him. We do not lose [Jesus] in places, we evict him from our lives and justify it with ideas.” – Ravi Zacharias in Why Jesus?
