Quotes of the Week

We make a fatal error when we think that this world will live forever and we are temporary. The Bible says the opposite: that this world is temporary and we will live forever. - Michael Ramsden

...Christ Himself reigns, but we are to reign with Him from the heavenly Jerusalem above. This, of course, is the New Jerusalem, the Bride, the Lamb's wife of Rev. 19 and 21. It embraces all the heavenly saints, that is, all those who have died in faith throughout the centuries, all who in every dispensation believed God and were therefore quickened by His Spirit. The heavenly Jerusalem is preeminently the Home of the Church and therefore is designated as the bridal city; but saints of all other dispensations who have passed through death and entered into resurrection life will, as one has expressed it, be upon its "Burgess roll." - H. A. Ironside

"The just shall live by faith" (Hebrews 10:38). The quotation is from Habakkuk 2:4, and it is also used in Romans 1:17 and Galatians 3:11. Romans emphasizes "the just," Galatians deals with "Shall live," and Hebrews centers on "by faith." We are not just saved from our sin by faith, we must also live by faith. - Warren W. Wiersbe

True Bible faith is confident obedience to God's Word in spite of circumstances and Consequences. - Warren W. Wiersbe

The world fails to realize that faith is only as good as its object, and the object of our faith is God. Faith is not some "feeling" that we manufacture. It is our total response to what God has revealed in His Word. - Warren W. Wiersbe

The easiest thing in the world is to believe God exists. It requires effort to disbelieve. The interesting thing is that everyone in the world, without exception, starts out believing God exists. It is only when they are carefully trained to disbelieve that they come to the place of declaring God does not exist. - Ray C. Stedman‪
