Trusting in Jesus Christ my Savior, there is a blessed quietness in the deep caverns of my soul, through upon the surface, a rough tempest may be raging, and there may be little apparent calm. If you are not concerned about your neighbor's salvation, then I am concerned for yours. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

We are either in the process of resisting God's truth or in the process of being shaped and molded by His truth. Let your mess be your message.

Is there any pleasure on earth as great as a circle of Christian friends by a fire? Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway. It is not by telling people about ourselves that we demonstrate our Christianity. Words are cheap. It is by costly, self-denying Christian practice that we show the reality of our faith.

When we look at the ungodly, we are not to hate them - but to pity them, mourn over them, and pray for them. Nor have we any right to boast over them; for, by nature, and of ourselves, we are no better than they. Envy is a spirit of dissatisfaction or opposition to the prosperity or happiness of other people. The good man has his enemies. He would not be like His Lord if he had not. If we were without enemies we might fear that we were not the friends of God, for friendship of the world is enmity to God.

Those who are in the best of circumstances but without God can never find peace, but those in the worst of circumstances but with God need never lack peace. If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. There are so many people who want to get together to have a great prayer meeting or other great gatherings.
Friend, have you ever tried being alone? That is where God will meet with you. Take the Word of God and go off alone with Him. It will do you a lot of good. When it seems as if God is far away, remind yourself that He is near. Nearness is not a matter of geography. God is everywhere. Nearness is likeness. The more we become like the Lord, the nearer He is to us. We do not want, as the newspapers say, a church that will move with the world.
We want a church that will move the world. Sin kept in the dark has power. Confide in someone. We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine. Someone has said that the marks of a strong church are wet eyes, bent knees, and a broken heart. We'll never be powerful until we let God be God and jealously guard His honor.
Before God could bring me to this place He has broken me a thousand times. It is a very solemn delusion when ministers think they are prospering, and yet do not hear of conversions.

A bruised heart that chooses to beat with a passion for God amid pulsing pain and confusion may just be the most expensive offering placed on the divine altar.

You can do more than pray after you've prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed. Would anyone choose Hell over Heaven? They don't want to go in the only way you can go in, on your knees. They don't want to admit they are a failure, that their life is a mess. Sin will take you farther than you ever expected to go; it will keep you longer than you ever intended to stay, and it will cost you more than you ever expected to pay. Stop staring at your problems and glancing at God. Start glancing at your problems and staring at God. End of Construction -- Thank you for your patience.

You will find, as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love. God cannot give us happiness apart from Himself because it is not there. There is no such thing. I thank God for my handicaps, for, through them, I have found myself, my work, and my God.

He is never in a hurry. If God took time to create beauty, how can we be too busy to appreciate it? It is easier to leave angry words unspoken, than to mend a heart those words have broken.
The secret of my success? It is simple. It is found in the Bible, "In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Lord, let me make a difference for you that is utterly disproportionate to who I am. A dollar spent for God is an investment for eternity. As we search the Scriptures, we must allow them to search us, to sit in judgment upon our character and conduct. Under every condition, in every circumstance for every burden, in every need, through every sorrow, Christ, the source and sustainer of life, is more than sufficient.
We are traveling on with our staff in hand We are pilgrims bound for the heavenly land. The fundamental truth in the matter of stewardship is that everything we touch belongs to God.

I will bring praise I will bring praise, no weapon forged against me shall remain, I will rejoice I will declare God is my victory and He is here.
Lead me to the cross where Your love poured out, bring me to my knees, Lord I lay me down, rid me of myself I belong to You. More love, more power, more of You in my life. I will worship You with all of my heart, I will worship You with all of my mind, I will worship You with all of my strength, for You are my Lord. Smith More Love More Power. O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast unmeasured, boundless, free. Rolling as a mighty ocean, in its fullness over me. Underneath me, all around me, is the current of Thy love, leading onward, leading homeward to Thy glorious rest above.
I come on my knees to lay down before you, bringing all that I am, longing only to know you. Seeking your face, and not only your hand, I find you embracing me, just as I am. Jesus, all for Jesus, all I am and have and ever hope to be. All of my ambitions, hopes and plans, I surrender these into Your hands For it's only in Your will that I am free. I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow, a wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor in the wind.
Still, you hear me when I'm calling, Lord you catch me when I'm falling, and you told me who I am, I am yours. No matter where I am, and every tear I've cried, You hold in Your hand You never left my side, and though my heart is torn I will praise You in this storm. He's been waiting all our lives to hear us say, I am yours Lord, take my hand and lead the way. When you believe He's all you need, that will be your defining moment, as you live your life walking in His light, trusting Him completely There is hope for the helpless, rest for the weary, love for the broken heart. There is grace and forgiveness, mercy and healing, He'll meet you wherever you are, cry out to Jesus.
I can't live by what I feel, but by the truth Your Word reveals. I'm not holding on to You, but You're holding on to me. In my heart, there's a fire burning, a passion deep within my soul, not slowing down, not growing cold. An unquenchable flame that keeps burning brighter, a love that's blazing like the sun, for who You are and what You've done.
When mountains fall, I'll stand, By the power of Your hand. Father I am waiting, I need to hear from You, to know that You're approving, of what I say and do, cause nothing really satisfies, like when You speak my name, so tell me that You'll never leave and everything will be okay. In Your presence, all fear is gone God, I've fallen to my knees, I'm bowing at your feet, I give you all of me, in you I am complete. Everybody falls sometimes, gotta find the strength to rise, from the ashes and make a new beginning.
Anyone can feel the ache, you think it's more than you can take, but you're stronger, stronger than you know. Don't you give up now, the sun will soon be shining, you gotta face the clouds, to find the silver lining. Life is so much more, than what your eyes are seeing. You will find your way, if you keep believing. Broken I run to you for your arms are open wide. I am weary but I know your touch restores my life. I surrender all to you, I surrender all to you, I am nothing without you, Jesus Christ, take my life it's all for you.
Give me grace to see beyond this moment here, to believe that there is nothing left to fear, and that you alone are high above it all, for You, my God, are greater still. There is nothing that can ever separate us, there is nothing that can ever separate us from Your love, no life, no death, of this I am convinced, You, my God, are greater still. Jesus Your name is a shelter for the hurting, Your name is a refuge for the weak, only Your name can redeem the undeserving, Jesus Your name holds everything I need.
Heal my heart and make it clean, open up my eyes to the things unseen, show me how to love like You have loved me. Break my heart for what breaks Yours, everything I am for Your kingdom's cause, as I walk from earth into eternity. Jesus Messiah, name above all names, blessed Redeemer, Emmanuel, the rescue for sinners, the ransom from Heaven, Jesus Messiah, Lord of all. The humble live in continuous peace, while in the hearts of the proud are envy and frequent anger. The only two solutions you have to get over disappointment is to either alter your reality or alter your expectations.
Remember, the very time for faith to work is when our sight begins to fail. And the greater the difficulties, the easier it is for faith to work, for as long as we can see certain natural solutions to our problems, we will not have faith. Faith never works as easily as when our natural prospects fail. All of us have areas of weakness. God wants these character flaws to show us how totally dependent we are upon Him. When we handle them properly, they drive us into a deeper, more intimate relationship with the Lord.
But uncontrolled weakness wreaks havoc in a person's life. You may go days without thinking of God, but there's never a moment when He's not thinking of you. People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway. To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you. The great thing to remember is that though our feelings come and go God's love for us does not. Lukewarm people give money to charity and to the church Lukewarm people tend to choose what is popular over what is right.
Lukewarm people don't really want to be saved from their sin; they want to be saved from the penalty of their sin. Lukewarm people rarely share their faith with their neighbors, coworkers, or friends. Lukewarm people are thankful for their luxuries and comforts, and rarely consider trying to give as much as possible to the poor. People who are obsessed with Jesus give freely and openly without censure. Obsessed people love those who hate them and who can never love them back. People who are obsessed with Jesus aren't consumed with their personal safety and comfort above all else.
Obsessed people care more about God's kingdom coming to this earth than their own lives being shielded from pain or distress. People who are obsessed with Jesus live lives that connect them with the poor in some way or another. Obsessed people believe that Jesus talked about money and the poor so often because it was really important to Him. Obsessed people are more concerned with obeying God than doing what is expected or fulfilling the status quo.
A person who is obsessed with Jesus will do things that don't always make sense in terms of success or wealth on this earth. A person who is obsessed with Jesus knows that the sin of pride is always a battle. Obsessed people know that you can never be "humble enough," and so they seek to make themselves less known and Christ more known Mt People who are obsessed with Jesus do not consider service a burden. Obsessed people take joy in loving God by loving His people Mt Jn People who are obsessed with God are known as givers, not takers.
Obsessed people genuinely think that others matter as much as they do, and they are particularly aware of those who are poor around the world James A person who is obsessed thinks about heaven frequently. Obsessed people orient their lives around eternity; they are not fixed only on what is here in front of them.
A person who is obsessed is characterized by committed, settled, passionate love for God, above and before every other thing and every other being. People who are obsessed are raw with God; they do not attempt to mask the ugliness of their sins or their failures. Obsessed people don't put it on for God; He is their safe place, where they can be at peace.
People who are obsessed with God have an intimate relationship with Him. They are nourished by God's Word throughout the day because they know that forty minutes on Sunday is not enough to sustain them for a whole week, especially when they will encounter so many distractions and alternative messages. A person who is obsessed with Jesus is more concerned with his or her character than comfort.
Obsessed people know that true joy doesn't depend on circumstances or environment; it is a gift that must be chosen and cultivated, a gift that ultimately comes from God James A person who is obsessed with Jesus knows that the best thing he can do is be faithful to his Savior in every aspect of his life, continually saying "Thank You! An obsessed person knows there can never be intimacy if he is always trying to pay God back or work hard enough to be worthy.
He revels in his role as a child and friend of God. Christians like to play it safe. We want to put ourselves in situations where we are safe 'even if there is no God. We have to do things that cost us during our life on earth but will be more than worth it in eternity. Do you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people he has made? Many Spirit-filled authors have exhausted the thesaurus in order to describe God with the glory He deserves. His perfect holiness, by definition, assures us that our words can't contain Him.
Isn't it a comfort to worship a God we cannot exaggerate? Never forget that God is your friend. And like all friends, He longs to hear what's been happening in your life. Good or bad, whether it's been full of sorrow or anger, or even when you're questioning why terrible things have to happen. What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.
I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven. Spending time with God is the key to our strength and success in all areas of life. Be sure that you never try to work God into your schedule, but always work your schedule around Him. We can never know who or what we are till we know at least something of what God is. For years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.
How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone? I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put Him. We have kept Him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on Him in prayer, we wonder where He is. He is exactly where we left him. God doesn't bless us just to make us happy; He blesses us to make us a blessing. To love someone is to desire and work toward their becoming the best version of themselves. The one person in all the universe who can do this perfectly for you is God.
All God's giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on God being with them. A little thing is a little thing, but faithfulness in little things is a great thing. Consider six or eight hours a day sacred to the Lord and His work, and let nothing hinder your giving this time to language study and practice till you can preach fluently and intelligibly. Devotion to God is still a voluntary thing; hence the differences of attainment among Christians. I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.
Not infrequently our GOD brings His people into difficulties on purpose that they may come to know Him as they could not otherwise do. Satan may build a hedge about us and fence us in and hinder our movements, but he cannot roof us in and prevent our looking up.
Jack's Flight Club Reviews and Testimonials | Jack's Flight Club
Wave after wave of trial rolled over us; but at the end of the year some of us were constrained to confess, that we had learned more of the loving-kindness of the Lord than in any previous year of our lives. While unbelief sees the difficulties, faith sees God between itself and them. Let us give up our work, our thoughts, our plans, ourselves, our lives, our loved ones, our influence, our all, right into His hand, and then, when we have given all over to Him, there will be nothing left for us to trouble about, or to make trouble about.
If you are a Christian, you are not a citizen of this world trying to get to heaven; you are a citizen of heaven making your way through this world. Not all dreamers are winners, but all winners are dreamers. Your dream is the key to your future. The Bible says that, "without a vision dream , a people perish.
God leads us. God will do the right thing at the right time. And what a difference that makes. Following the crowd is not a winning approach to life. In the end it's a loser's game, because we never become who God created us to be by trying to be like everybody else. I should have died when I was sixteen, when I planned to commit suicide. And I was an atheist until then. I was an atheist, and what the heck, if life sucks what do you have to live for?
If you're an atheist, it's just about living, you know? So at the time, I didn't want to wake up anymore and then seriously, God chased me down and proved that he was real and that he loved me. The born-again Christian sees life not as a blurred , confused, meaningless mass, but as something planned and purposeful. We must focus on prayer as the main thrust to accomplish God's will and purpose on earth. The forces against us have never been greater, and this is the only way we can release God's power to become victorious. When God is involved, anything can happen.
Be open and stay that way. God has a beautiful way of bring good vibrations out of broken chords. Have I today done anything to fulfill the purpose for which Thou didst cause me to be born? Life is short and we have scarcely begun to live when we are called to die. We honor God by asking for great things when they are a part of His promise. We dishonor Him and cheat ourselves when we ask for molehills where He has offered mountains. Be such a man, and live such a life, that if every man were such as you, and every life a life such as yours, this earth would be God's paradise.
The life of faith is a daily exploration of the constant and countless ways in which God's grace and love are experienced. True prayer is measured by weight, not by length. A single groan before God may have more fullness of prayer in it than a fine oration of great length. Leadership requires vision, and whence will vision come except from hours spent in the presence of God in humble and fervent prayer? Prayer shouldn't be casual or sporadic, dictated only by the needs of the moment.
Prayer should be as much a part of our lives as breathing. Don't wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly. Fear lurks in the shadows of every area of life. The future may look very threatening. Jesus says, "Stop being afraid. Trust me! When God wants to do an impossible task, he takes an impossible man, and he crushes him. We are either the masters or victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice.
Who we are today is the result of choices we made yesterday. Tomorrow, we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose change. We know so little about the future that to worry about it would be the height of foolishness. The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety. Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work. Be patient. God is using today's difficulties to strengthen you for tomorrow.
He is equipping you. The God who makes things grow will help you bear fruit. Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things. The fact that we were created to enjoy God and to worship him forever is etched upon our souls. Don't ever come to church without coming as though it were the first time, as though it could be the best time, and as though it could be the last time.
More often than not, when something looks like it's the absolute end, it is really the beginning. God doesn't always change the circumstances, but He can change us to meet the circumstances. That's what it means to live by faith. After all, a crisis doesn't make a person; it reveals what a person is made of. Sometimes your medicine bottle says, "shake well before using. He has to shake them well before they are usable. Many books in my library are now behind and beneath me. They were good in their way once, and so were the clothes I wore when I was ten years old; but I have outgrown them.
Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years. God looketh upon any thing we say, or any thing we do, and if He seeth Christ in it, He accepteth it; but if there be no Christ, He putteth it away as a foul thing. Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment; trust in money and you may have it taken from you, but trust in God, and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity. Confidence in the natural world is self-reliance; in the spiritual world, it is God-reliance.
Walk by faith! Stop the plague of worry. Learn to say, "Lord, this is Your battle. Christ alone can bring lasting peace - peace with God - peace among men and nations - and peace within our hearts. The peace that Jesus gives is never engineered by circumstances on the outside. Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God. Don't expect wisdom to come into your life like great chunks of rock on a conveyor belt. Wisdom comes privately from God as a byproduct of right decisions, godly reactions, and the application of spiritual principles to daily circumstances.
It may not seem obvious at first glance, but the way we make decisions in life tells a lot about the kind of faith we have in Jesus Christ. I have since learned that the most mature believer is the one who is bent over, leaning most heavily on the Lord, and admitting his total inability to do anything without Christ.
It's not that your most important work is meaningless; it's that your most trivial movements are also significant. If you have put your faith in Christ and have spent significant time in the Word of God, the tough times can be like a magnet that draws you to the Lord Jesus. Nothing is going to happen - ever - that will catch Jesus Christ by surprise. He is able to help His children work through anything, and not a single thing is going to happen in the future that can change that fact. You asked the Holy Spirit for a miracle, and now that you've got one you're trying to argue it away.
People who don't believe in miracles shouldn't pray for them. The day you learn to be publically specific in your prayer, that is the day you will discover power. The backslider likes the preaching that wouldn't hit the side of a house, while the real disciple is delighted when the truth brings him to his knees. The Bible will always be full of things you cannot understand, as long as you will not live according to those you can understand. We have a right to believe whatever we want, but not everything we believe is right.
These days its not just that the line between right and wrong has been made unclear, today Christians are being asked by our culture today to erase the lines and move the fences, and if that were not bad enough, we are being asked to join in the celebration cry by those who have thrown off the restraints religion had imposed upon them. It is not just that they ask we accept, but they now demand of us to celebrate it too.
How quickly we forget God's great deliverances in our lives. How easily we take for granted the miracles he performed in our past. If we rationalize our problems when He points them out, we will spend less and less time meditating because we won't want to face God in that area of our lives. Temptation can be defined as an inducement to do evil. Three powerful forces work together to ruin a believer's character and witness: Satan, the world system, and our own lustful "flesh" tendencies. When friends abandoned him, Paul asked God not to count their actions against them.
He followed the example of Jesus, who prayed for the Father to forgive His persecutors. What's your response when friends let you down? Forgiveness is the choice that pleases God every time. When you become consumed by God's call on your life, everything will take on new meaning and significance. You will begin to see every facet of your life - including your pain - as a means through which God can work to bring others to Himself. Concentrate on counting your blessings and you'll have little time to count anything else.
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. If there is one single reason why good people turn evil, it is because they fail to recognize God's ownership over their kingdom, their vocation, their resources, their abilities, and above all their lives. The work that God does in us when we wait is usually more important than the thing for which we wait! Success is not what you have done compared to what others have done. Success is what you have done compared to what you were supposed to do. One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.
Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things 'above all that we ask or think. I used to ask God to help me. Then I asked if I might help Him. I ended up by asking Him to do His work through me. Most of the world's great souls have been lonely. Loneliness seems to be one price the saint must pay for his saintliness Always remember: you cannot carry a cross in company. Though a man were surrounded by a vast crowd, his cross is his alone and his carrying of it marks him as a man apart.
Society has turned against him; otherwise he would have no cross. No one is a friend to the man with a cross. Trials are not enemies of faith but opportunities to prove God's faithfulness. Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and His will. If you find a path in life with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere. There's nothing that can help you understand your beliefs more than trying to explain them to an inquisitive child. We would be more grateful if we knew how much of what we take for granted is planned by God.
Lord, help me to put aside the things that are breaking my heart, to pray about things that break Yours. Remember the God you knew in the wilderness, and allow those memories to enable you to stand in the future. We have to walk with God or we will not get to the place he has prepared for us. And for all these people alike, the key to healing turned out to be the same.
Each had a hurt he had to forgive. If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God you'll be at rest. The Lord has shown me that I can do anything, but that He has said, apart from Me ye can do nothing. So it comes to this, that everything I have done, and can still do apart from Him is nothing! The real question today is not when human life begins, but, what is the value of human life? The abortionist who reassembles the arms and legs of a tiny baby to make sure all its parts have been torn from its mother's body can hardly doubt whether it is a human being.
The real question for him and for all of us is whether that tiny human life has a God-given right to be protected by the law -- the same right we have. Many people treat the Bible like a drunk treats a lightpost; for support, not illumination. The Word of God is like a lion. You don't have to defend a lion. All you have to do is let the lion loose, and the lion will defend itself. True boldness for Christ transcends all, it is indifference to the displeasure of either friends or foes. Boldness enables Christians to forsake all rather than Christ, and to prefer to offend all rather than to offend Him.
Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory. It is a mindless philosophy that assumes that one's private beliefs have nothing to do with public office. Does it make sense to entrust those who are immoral in private with the power to determine the nation's moral issues and, indeed, its destiny?
One of the most dangerous and terrifying trends in America today is the disregard for character as a central necessity in a leader's credentials. The duplicitous soul of a leader can only make a nation more sophisticated in evil. I go out to preach with two propositions in mind. First, every person ought to give his life to Christ. Second, whether or not anyone else gives him his life, I will give him mine.
I'm tired of hearing about 'anointing. Instead I want to see character.

I want to see men who have made the hard moral decisions and thus have embodied the excellence of the Christian faith. I want to hear about people who have made every effort to add to their faith goodness We may not be responsible for all the things that happen to us, but we are responsible for the ways we react when they do happen. Most people would not want to live where there are no churches but many people live as though there were no churches.
In other days people chose a church on the basis of their doctrinal convictions. Now, lacking doctrinal convictions, they choose for social reasons. To a large extent, the American church has become merged with the world. It has adopted so many of the world's ideals and standards that it has lost its ability to stem the tide of crime, deception and immorality that is sweeping the nation.
For millions of church members there is no deep commitment to the cause of Christ, no regularity of attendance at public worship, no sacrificial giving, no personal religious discipline. Courage is contagious. When a brave person takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened. When you leave behind a vibrant Christian who knows his calling and his commission, you can be buried, but you will live on through all those in whom you have been reproduced. In three decades of pastoring and counseling couples, there's only one thing we've found truly makes for a lasting marriage, both people must want to be married to each other more than they want to divorce.
When a person does not know the doctrines of the Christian faith, he can easily be captured by false religions. I believe in the eternal security of the believer and in the insecurity of the make-believer. Vernon McGee. We have now moved from the burden of raising money to the adventure of trusting God. Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible. There is no glory for God in that which is humanly possible. Faith begins where man's power ends. The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God you fear everything else.
God buries our sins in the depths of the sea and then puts up a sign that reads, "No fishing. Our evangelical culture tends to take the awesome reality of a transcendent god who is worthy to be feared and downsize Him so He could fit into our "buddy system. It's been a long time since we've heard a good sermon on the "fear of God. If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.
If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference. If the Holy Spirit had been withdrawn from the New Testament church, 95 percent of what they did would stop, and everybody would know the difference. Only those who see themselves as utterly destitute can fully appreciate the grace of God.
For the Christian, humility is absolutely indispensable. Without it there can be no self-knowledge, no repentance, no faith and no salvation. Humility is a strange thing: the moment you think you have it, you have lost it. Most of the world around you doesn't read the Bible. God gives the world a living epistle-- you.
