quotes

Never use the expression, ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,’ to refer to your need to change. You’re not a dog, you’re made in the image of God, and God calls you to change to be more like Him no matter your age.

– Dr. John Street

This book [the Bible] will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from this book.

– John Owen

What would be the worth of the opinions of all the men in the world as to the state of a soul before God?

– C. H. Spurgeon

In the manger and in eternity, on the cross and on His throne, in the garden and in His kingdom, among thieves or in the midst of cherubim, Jesus Christ is everywhere altogether lovely. Examine carefully every little act of His life, and every trait of His character, and He is as lovely in the minute as in the majestic.

– Charles Spurgeon

“Works done before the grace of Christ are not pleasant to God, for as much as they spring not of faith in Jesus Christ; yea, rather, for that they are not done as God has willed them to be done, we doubt not but they have the nature of sin.”

– The Book of Common Prayer

“We are a people of the Book. We know God through the Book. We meet Christ in the Book. We see the cross in the Book. Our faith and love are kindled by the glorious truths of the Book. We have tasted the divine majesty of the Word and are persuaded that the Book is God’s inspired and infallible written revelation. Therefore, what the Book teaches matters.”

– John Piper

“Works not rooted in God are splendid sins.”

– Augustine

“The more you know about Christ, the less you will be satisfied with superficial views of him.”

– C.H. Spurgeon

“The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God’s idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am, and all that He wants me to be.”

– Elisabeth Elliot
Let Me Be a Woman

“We must never be naive enough to think of marriage as a safe harbor from the Fall…. The Deepest struggles of life will occur in the most primary relationship affected by the Fall: marriage.”
