Quote – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

30 Nov

God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises…leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

 

Thank the Lord that we don’t get everything we want.  Those who get even quite a bit of the worldly things they were hoping for end up in a mess.

God will always provide our needs.  Those needs point to His Kingdom and His love for us.

Quote – D L Moody

15 Nov

There is no better evangelist in the world than the Holy Spirit.
Dwight L. Moody

 

The Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity and part of God.  He has nothing contrary to say about the Word or God.

If someone does something or is teaching something other than the Word of God and says it’s from the Holy Spirit, they’re being deceived.  Jesus went to be with the Lord so he could send back the Comforer.

John 16:7 – 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  KJV

John 16:7 – 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.  NKJV

John 16:7 – 7 But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.  NIV

Counselor, Helper, Comforter, the Holy Spirit is all those things and our communication line to the Lord.  There is no better evangelist.

Quote – Dwight L Moody

I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
Dwight L. Moody

 

I believe the more we live for God we begin to see this.  We realize that we are accountable to God on how we live our own lives.  The more we get to know our Lord, the more wretched and fallen we see ourselves.

You can see why the term ignorance is bliss is a popular term.  However, there is only partial truth to that when it deals with God.  If we have the ability to know our Lord more and we choose not to do so, ignorance won’t be an excuse at all.  On the flip side as we get to know the rights and wrongs and we continue to choose wrong, that’s bad also.

So many paths to take and yet the one most beneficial to our lives is the one where we deny ourselves and live for Him and do what He would have us do.

 

Quote – H G Wells on Jesus

01 May

I am an historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very center of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history.
H.G. Wells

 

We tell our whole timeline by Before Christ (BC) and After Death (AD).  The Bible is the most printed book in history.  God and Jesus are not only the center of history, but the center of the universe as they are the Creator’s of it.

Quote C.S. Lewis

15 Mar

When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less.
C.S. Lewis

 

Spiritual blindness.  They are getting further away from the Light and the Truth.

Quote – Keith Green

11 Nov

I’d rather have people hate me with the knowledge that I tried to save them.
Keith Green

 

Clearly it’s the Lord that saves and our job to spread the Word and Good News.

After we die and some of our friends didn’t choose Jesus how will we feel if we didn’t really try to share Him with them?  Did we care about them?  Did we really love them?

That’s what I get out of Keith Green’s quote.  It may come off a little strong and our job isn’t to pester to the point they run away, but too many of us never mention Him at all to others or the ones we love.

Don’t stand in front of the Lord or regret that you didn’t at least try to share Jesus with those you love.

Quote – C. S. Lewis

16 Oct

A man can eat his dinner without understanding exactly how food nourishes him. A man can accept what Christ has done without knowing how it works: indeed, he certainly would not know how it works until he has accepted it.
C.S. Lewis

 

Come as you are.  However, I believe the reason we have had a great falling away from the Word of God is no one seeks Truth once they have accepted it.

The biggest thing that strengthens our faith from any doubt is the Truth.  Jesus said He is Truth.  Jesus is also known as the Word of God.  You can accept Jesus with only hearing a little bit in the beginning, that’s the way it usually always works.  However, when there is an assault on the Word of God, someone who doesn’t know it at all has no way to identify heresy.  The Bible constantly warns us about many things.  It’s constantly warning us to do certain things.  If we don’t know it at all we’re not going to be obeying those things.

Once again we are to come as we are.  However, when we accept His sacrifice, we are supposed to start the process of dying to ourselves and our own sinful nature and begin living for Him.

No one is perfect and one will falter usually on a daily basis, but continue to walk forward not backward.

The grace of Jesus was not meant to be a get out of jail free card.  It was meant for us to accept and begin the journey to serve him and no longer our own self or wants.  What the Lord wants more than anything is a
relationship with His own and for us to reach others so He may have relationship with them.  If not more will perish and He doesn’t wish for any to do that.

God sends no one away empty except those who are full of themselves.
Dwight L. Moody

Pride and arroance are the enemy to God.  It’s why we need to die to ourselves and live for Him.

Quote – Dwight L Moody

25 Sep

The Christian on his knees sees more than the philosopher on tiptoe.
Dwight L. Moody

 

Proverbs 2:6- 6 For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

The reason for spiritual blindness is no relationship with God.  When people don’t have God they don’t
have sound Wisdom.  Wisdom comes from the Lord.

Quote – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

18 Sep

Unless he obeys, a man cannot believe.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

 

Another reminder that actions speak louder than words.  If you keep telling someone you’ll do something and don’t you’re liar.  If you don’t do anything for someone you love, how much do you love them?  If you do everything for the benefit of yourself, who do you care about more?

When you stop doing things contradictary to God’s Word you are telling the Lord, I am going against my sinful natural nature because I love you.  

Love and obey because there is no other way to know the Lord.
