Before the Judgment Seat
Mood:  cool
Topic: quote

"...every individual of the human race
     will have to appear before the judgment seat.
       ...it is sometimes objected that
            the sins of believers, which are pardoned,
               certainly will not be published at that time;
     but Scripture leads us to expect that they will be,
       though they will, of course, be revealed as pardoned sins.
   Men will be judged for "every idle word,"
     ...and for "every secret thing,"
       ...and there is no indication whatsoever that
             this will be limited to the wicked." 


                                                               -- Louis Berkhof

Repentance
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

 

 “You can't bypass repentance to get to grace.

Topic: Bible Verses

The LORD says,
    “I will guide you
         along the best pathway
for your life.
     I will advise you and watch over you.

     Do not be like a senseless horse or mule
          that needs a bit and bridle
               to keep it under control.”


           - - Psalm 32:8-9 (New Living Translation)

Sin....
Topic: quote

"Sin only perverts what is good.
   Thus theft is a misuse of property.
   Lying is a misuse of the gift of language,
      as is slander, deceit and malice.
   Sexual immorality is a misuse of the gift of sexuality
   Divorce is a misuse of marriage.
   Greed is a misuse of our good desires and the aspirations we have.
   Pride is a misuse of skill and giving too much credit to ourselves.
 Every sin you can think of is somehow
   a perversion of something that is good." 

       - - Dr. Dan Doriani

Walking by faith....
Topic: quote
"..all of us would like to see the light
      at the end of the tunnel,
          but maybe it is sufficient to know
                that we are in the right tunnel
                      and God has us in His hands. 
   He is leading us,
      sometimes through the dark passages
             where we do not know why we are here,
                 what we are doing, and where He is leading.
     
        But that is the nature of walking by faith."
 
                  -- Dr. V. Phillip Long

Mood:  a-ok
Topic: prayer
Why the One who knows
    what we need before we ask Him
       should urge us to ask and seek and knock
    may puzzle us.
 
We realize that our Lord and God
   does not want us to let Him know what we want,
       since He cannot be ignorant of that.
 
What He wants for us is
    to exercise our desire in our prayers
        so that we are capable of receiving
            what He is preparing to give us.
 
His is a great gift,
    and we are little and limited
      in our ability to receive.
 
He tells us to widen our hearts.
   Our ability to receive His great gift,
     which eye has not seen,
     since it has no color,
         nor ear heard,
         since it has no sound,
             and which has not arisen in a human heart,
             since the human heart has to rise up to it,
   will grow in proportion
       as we believe more trustfully,
           hope more firmly,
               and desire more ardently.
 
                            --St. Augustine

Holiness.....
Mood:  hungry
Topic: quote
"Becoming holy is not a matter of self-transformation.
     It is a matter of looking to God
         in repentance and faith on a daily basis
            and seeking His help to become more like Him."

                           --Dr. Jay Sklar

Suffering....
Mood:  energetic
Topic: quote

"..suffering, if we respond to it appropriately, 
    has a maturing effect in us.
          But suffering in and of itself is no guarantee
          that we will grow spiritually.
          Some people are embittered by what they suffer.
    The key is responding to whatever life brings our way
    in a godly fashion, by His grace.
              In this way our circumstances will enable us to grow closer to Him
              rather than drive a wedge between us and Him.
        Those who are called upon to suffer should see
        that not as God kicking them, but as God honoring them.
              ...those whom God calls to suffer I see that
              as an honor to His most trusted servants.
                      They are the ones He can trust with that,
                      whereas some of the weaker ones of us
                      may not be able to fare as well under those circumstances.
        I do think there is deep meaning in suffering
            —we comfort others with the comfort
              with which we have been comforted.
       We can help other people when we have been through things."

                                   -- Dr. V.Phillip Long

Our dignity
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

"Our dignity is not found in rebellion against God,
     but in the humility of faith and in seeing
         our utter need of the grace of God given in Christ."

"Lord God, let us keep your Scriptures in mind
        and meditate on them day and night,
                persevering in prayer,
                       always on the watch.
      We beg you, Lord,
          give us real knowledge of what we read,
               and show us not only how to understand it
                    but how to put it into practice
                         that we might obtain spiritual grace,
                 enlightened by the law of the Holy Spirit,
            through Jesus Christ our Lord,
                   whose power and glory will endure
                                              throughout all ages.
                                                                         Amen."

 - The prayer of St. Origen (AD 185-254)

Pride..
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

 

      "As long as you are proud you cannot know God.
              A proud man is always looking down on things and people:
          and, of course, as long as you are looking down,
                  you cannot see something that is above you."

                                                            -- C.S. Lewis

                         a full comprehension of His goodness."
