You may be very clever and sophisticated and think you don't need God, but you are walking on His earth, breathing His air, using His sunshine, and drinking His water. He even gave you the body that you have. Every now and then He washes His dishes. Nations down through the centuries lie along the highway of time in rubble and ruin. Do you know why? They did the same thing that our nation is doing today: living without God, feeling no need of God. God said that he was going to wipe Jerusalem as a man wipes a dish, and He did just that. - J. Vernon McGee

Grace Refused is grace removed. - unknown school administrator

As long as you're looking for a way out instead of the way HOME, you'll always remain a prodigal. - Scott Mitchell

The book began with a realization of the great sacrifice made by our the Lord Jesus Christ, the very Son of God, when He died on the cruel cross of Calvary, for my sins. There is no sacrifice that I can ever make that can ever come near to His sacrifice. In fact, every effort on my part to respond to His great love for me, to thank Him for all He has achieved by His death that I might know forgiveness of sin, can only be seen as privilege. - Dr. Helen Roseveare

Instead of asking ourselves "Is it worth it?" when the way gets tough, and our backs are to the wall, we should ask "Is He worthy?" There will certainly, eventually, come a day when we will be tempted to say "No" to the first question,, but the second will always bring us round to say "Yes. One hundred times Yes!" - Roseveare

We are apt to think that everything that happens is to be turned into useful teaching - no! - it is to be turned into something better than teaching; it is to be turned into character.  The (momentous moments in our lives) are not meant to teach us anything, they are meant to make us something. - Oswald Chambers
