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               certainly will not be published at that time;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.

.  
                                    
not in our disobedience."

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

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

     but in the humility of faith and in seeing
         our utter need of the grace of God given in Christ."

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

Knowledge and Love..
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

                         a full comprehension of His goodness."

Love and Serve....
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

  "Lord, it belongs not to my care
          whether I die or live;
              To love and serve Thee is my share,
                     and this Thy grace must give.
       If life be long, I will be glad,
             that I may long obey;
                  If short - then why should I be sad
                        to soar to endless day?"

                                            -- J.I.Packer

Scripture or experience ?
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

     "We should not interpret Scripture   
                   in the light of our experiences, 
         but we should examine our experiences 
                      in the light of the teaching of Scripture."

                                              -- Martyn Lloyd Jones

Light is not Sight
Mood:  cool
Topic: quote
       Religious instruction, however sound,
               is not enough by itself.
                    It brings light, but it cannot impart sight.
 
         The assumption that light and sight
               are synonymous has brought spiritual tragedy to millions.

          The Pharisees looked straight
               at the Light of the World for three years,
                     but not one ray of light reached their inner beings.
 
          Light is not enough.
               The inward operation of the Holy Spirit
                    is necessary to saving faith.
        
          The gospel is light
              but only the Spirit can give sight.

                                                             -- A.W. Tozer

Faith..
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: quote

“Now we shall possess a right definition of faith 
     if we call it a firm and certain knowledge of 
         God’s benevolence toward us,
     founded upon the truth
         of the freely given promise in Christ,
    both revealed to our minds
         and sealed upon our hearts
    through the Holy Spirit.”
                                             -- John Calvin
