A few quotes I ran across today which I wanted to share:
Lord Jesus Christ, I admit that I am weaker and more sinful than I ever before believed, but, through you, I am more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope. I thank you for paying my debt, bearing my punishment and offering forgiveness. I turn from my sin and receive you as Savior. Amen.
- Timothy Keller
Observed Duties maintain our credit but secret duties maintain our life
Flavels Touchstone of Sincerity, Works Vol V, p 520. - quoted in Jonathan Edwards, The Religious Affections, Banner of Truth Edition (Carlisle:PA, Banner of Truth Trust, 2001) 65.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
G.K. Chesterton, "What's Wrong with the World?” (Dodd, Mead and Company, 1910. Reprinted, San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1994), 37.
