“I feel more affinity with unsophisticated believers than with the Christian elite. . . . I stand with the Bible-thumpers.” John Frame
“Men who are strong are always men who are fixed somewhere, who have a conviction from which they cannot be separated by argument, which cannot be changed, whatever the circumstances in the midst of which they live. Sometimes these men are very narrow, but they are wonderfully strong; they are singularly obstinate, but they are […]
“Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your Holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.” Book of Common Prayer, 1662
Dear Praying Friends, Yesterday we received a letter from a prisoner in West Virginia who told us a wonderful story. He had received a copy of An Anchor for the Soul as a reward for completing “Great Truths of the Bible,” a 52-lesson course from Crossroad Bible Institute.First he read the book on his own. […]
When we ask God to make us like Jesus, we are really praying to be led to the Cross.
“Christ leads us through no darker rooms than he went through before, He that unto God’s kingdom comes must enter by this door. Come Lord, when grace has made me meet, thy blessed face to see; For if thy work on earth be sweet, what will thy glory be! My knowledge of that life is […]
“Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail; Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end, Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.” Robert Grant, 1833

We must live in this present age, but this present age must not live in us.
“Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that’s a tough call. That’s rebellion.” Alice Cooper
Encouragement is not something that perishes in the using. The way to get more is to use what you’ve got. It increases by giving it away.
I pray for grace, dear God, to yield up anything that keeps me from discovering your best for my life. Grant that the good may go in order that the best may come. Amen.
Of all the people in the world, we should be the ones having the best time. After all, we know we aren’t going to live forever and we know where we’re going when we die. So have a blast while you last.
“Firm as the earth thy gospel stands, My Lord, my hope, my trust; If I am found in Jesus’ hands, My soul can ne’er be lost.” Isaac Watts

“The Bride eyes not her garment, but her dear Bridegroom’s face; I will not gaze at glory but on my King of grace. Not at the crown He giveth but on His pierced hand; The Lamb is all the glory of Immanuel’s land.” Anne R. Cousin
“The Gospel reminds me the mistakes I make don’t define me. I am defined In Christ Alone. Mistakes are just information for getting better.” Hugh Freeze
“If all men are offended because of Christ, let them be offended; but where is the sense of their being offended at something that is not Christ and is nothing like him? We do him singularly little honor by watering down his personality till it could not offend a fly. Surely it is not the […]
“Anything under God’s control is never out of control.” Chuck Swindoll
The skill of the shepherd is seen not in the sunlight but in the dark valleys.
