Who Do You Love More?

“The Lord does not give me rules, but He makes His standard very clear. If my relationship to Him is that of love, I will do what He says without hesitation. If I hesitate, it is because I love someone I have placed in competition with Him, namely, myself.”– Oswald Chambers –

God’s Sovereign Freedom

“Ancient paganism thought of each god as bound to his worshipers’ by bonds of self-interest, because he depended on their service and gifts for his welfare.  Modern paganism has at the back of its mind a similar feeling that God is somehow obliged to love and help us, little though we deserve it.  This feeling is not well founded.  The God of the Bible does not depend on His human creatures for His well-being, nor, now that we have sinned, is He bound to show us favor.”      -J.I. Packer-

                                                                                                                                        

God In Personal Experience

“Once the seeking heart finds God in personal experience there will be no further problem about loving Him.  To know Him is to love Him and to know Him better is to love Him more.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                             A.W. Tozer

                                                          

Fullness Only In The Lord

“Be content to be nothing, for that is what you are.  When your own emptiness is painfully forced upon your consciousness, chide yourself that you ever dreamed of being full, except in the Lord.”     

                                                    Charles Haddon Spurgeon   

True Evangelism

“True evangelism does not offer some panacea for all the ills in our life in this world; it does not promise to make us perfect in a moment or set the whole world right.  It says rather, ‘In the world ye shall have tribulation; but fear not, I have overcome the world.'”        D. Martin Lloyd-Jones
