Quotes of the Week

What does Job do from chapters 27 through 31? He defends himself. He vindicates himself. He protests his own innocence.
And that is why God is silent.
Why doesn't God answer Job's questions? Because Job isn't ready to listen. As long as job defends himself, God cannot defend him.
- Ray. C. Stedman

The minute you begin to justify yourself, God will immediately have to point the finger at you and say what you are. Real wisdom, and the correct position, is to condemn ourselves utterly and to cast ourselves upon God. When we do that, God becomes our justifier. There is nothing but wrath for the self-righteous. And there is nothing but grace for the self-judged. J. Vernon McGee

He that spits at Heaven- spits in his own eye. - Chinese proverb

Your walk walks and your talk talks but your walk talks louder than your talk talks. - quoted by Chaplain Randy Griffin

Beware of any you talk to who minimize the Lord Jesus Christ. - Griffin
