"Jesus forgave a thief Dangling on a cross, knowing full well the thief had converted out of plain fear. That thief would never study the Bible, never attend Synagogue or Church, and never make amends to those he had wronged. He simply said “Jesus Remember me,” and Jesus promised “Today you will be with me in Paradise.” It was another shocking reminder that grace does not depend on what we have done for God, but rather what God has done for us."
Philip Yancy

1 “You cannot with the utmost stretch of imagination conceive of His exceeding greatness; yet there will be a further revelation of it when He shall descend from heaven in great power, with all the holy angels—“Then he will sit on his glorious throne.”2 The splendor of that glory seen will ravish the hearts of His people. This isn’t the end, for eternity will sound His praise. “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever!”3 Reader, if you would rejoice in Christ’s glory then, He must be glorious in your sight now. So, is He?
1 Isaiah 53:3

"There is no greater discovery than seeing God as the Author of your destiny."

Ravi Zacharias

Love is like the five loaves and two fish.  Never enough until you start giving it away!

"Our greatest fear should not be failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter."

Trinity Baptist Church

“It would indeed, be very hard for one that appears careless about his own salvation to persuade me that he were extremely concerned for mine.  For it is impossible that those should sincerely and heartily apply themselves to make other people Christians, who have not really embraced the Christian religion in their own hearts.”  
—John Locke

from Letter Concerning Tolerance published 1689.

"There is scarcely anything so dull and meaningless as Bible doctrine taught for its own sake. Truth divorced from life is not truth in its biblical sense, but something else and something less."

The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.

"The Grace that does not change my life, will not save my soul."
