    Satan Is So Much More

  6. 6
    And Shall I Pray

    “And shall I pray Thee change Thy will, my Father,
    Until it be according unto mine?
    But, no, Lord, no, that never shall be, rather
    I pray Thee blend my human will with Thine.

    I pray Thee hush the hurrying, eager longing,
    I pray Thee soothe the pangs of keen desire—
    See in my quiet places, wishes thronging—
    Forbid them, Lord, purge, though it be with fire.”

  7. 7
    Jesus Tends

    “Jesus tends to his people individually. He personally sees to our needs. We all receive Jesus’ touch. We experience his care.”

  8. 8
    His Grace Is Cheapened

    “His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God’s forgiveness is not given in installments.”

  9. 9
    Creatures Are Not Born With Desires

    “The Christian says, ‘Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same.”

  10. 10
    A Sum Can Be Put Right

    “A sum can be put right: but only by going back till you find the error and working it afresh from that point, never by simply going on.”

  11. 11
    The Christians Are Right

    “The Christians are right: it is Pride which has been the chief cause of misery in every nation and every family since the world began.”

  12. 12
    Life Is Wasted

    “Life is wasted if we do not grasp the glory of the cross, cherish it for the treasure that it is, and cleave to it as the highest price of every pleasure and the deepest comfort in every pain. What was once foolishness to us—a crucified God—must become our wisdom and our power and our only boast in this world.”

  13. 13
    I Have Never Met

    “I have never met the man I could despair of after discerning what lies in me apart from the grace of God.”

  14. 14
    We Fail In The Work

    “We fail in the work of grace and love when there is too much of us and not enough of God.”

  15. 15
    Great Longing Was

    “[Amy Carmichael’s] great longing was to have a “single eye” for the glory of God. Whatever might blur the vision God had give her of His work, whatever could distract or deceive or tempt other to seek anything but the Lord Jesus Himself she tried to eliminate.”

  16. 16
    As Long As You Do

    “As long as you do things for God, you are a Hall of Famer in heaven’s list.”

  17. 17
    Are You Letting Culture

    “Are you letting culture, not scripture, determine your sexuality, how you date, how you present yourself, how you engage in certain relationships with members of the opposite sex? We need to be very clear that the way we do life is different than the rest of the world.”

  18. 18
    Since It Is Likely That

    “Since it is likely that, being men, they would sin every day, St. Paul consoles his hearers by saying ‘renew yourselves’ from day to day. This is what we do with houses: we keep constantly repairing them as they wear old. You should do the same thing to yourself. Have you sinned today? Have you made your soul old? Do not despair, do not despond, but renew your soul by repentance, and tears, and Confession, and by doing good things. And never cease doing this.”

  19. 19
    We Never Grow

    “We never grow closer to God when we just live life. It takes deliberate pursuit and attentiveness.”

  20. 20
    When We Are Securely Rooted

    “When we are securely rooted in personal intimacy with the source of life, it will be possible to remain flexible without being relativistic, convinced without being rigid, willing to confront without being offensive, gentle and forgiving without being soft, and true witnesses without being manipulative.”

  21. 21
    We Live By Revelation

    “We live by revelation, as Christians, as artists, which means we must be careful never to get set into rigid molds. The minute we begin to think we know all the answers, we forget the questions, and we become smug like the Pharisee who listed all his considerable virtues, and thanked God that he was not like other men.

    Unamuno might be describing the artist as well as the Christian as he writes, “Those who believe they believe in God, but without passion in the heart, without anguish of mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, and even at times without despair, believe only in the idea of God, and not in God himself.”

  22. 22
    We Have Never Preached Violence

    “We have never preached violence, except the violence of love, which left Christ nailed to a cross, the violence that we must each do to ourselves to overcome our selfishness and such cruel inequalities among us. The violence we preach is not the violence of the sword, the violence of hatred. It is the violence of love, of brotherhood,the violence that wills to beat weapons into sickles for work.”

  23. 23
    Experience Had Quickly Taught Her

    “Experience had quickly taught her that she could not survive the storms without the anchor of the constraining love of Christ and what she called the “Rock-counsciousness” of the promise given her, “He goeth before.”

  24. 24
    Don’t Cohabitate

    “Don’t cohabitate. Don’t fornicate. Don’t look at pornography. Don’t create a standard of beauty. Have your spouse be your standard of beauty. This is one of the great devastating effects of pornography: you lust after people and compare your spouse to them. It’s impossible to be satisfied in your marriage if you don’t have a standard that is biblical; that standard is always your spouse.”

  25. 25
    For The Church

    “For the church, the many abuses of human life, liberty, and dignity are a heartfelt suffering. The church, entrusted with the earth’s glory, believes that in each person is the Creator’s image and that everyone who tramples it offends God. As holy defender of God’s rights and of his images, the church must cry out. It takes as spittle in its face, as lashes on its back, as the cross in its passion, all that human beings suffer, even though they be unbelievers. They suffer as God’s images. There is no dichotomy between man and God’s image. Whoever tortures a human being, whoever abuses a human being, whoever outrages a human being abuses God’s image, and the church takes as its own that cross, that martyrdom.”

  26. 26
    We Are Not Asked

    “We are not asked to SEE,” said Amy. “Why need we when we KNOW?” We know–not the answer to the inevitable Why, but the incontestable fact that it is for the best. “It is an irreparable loss, but is it faith at all if it is ‘hard to trust’ when things are entirely bewildering?”

  27. 27
    It Was Becoming Clearer

    “It was becoming clearer and clearer that if I wanted to come to the end of my life and not say, “I’ve wasted it!” then I would need to press all the way in, and all the way up, to the ultimate purpose of God and join him in it. If my life was to have a single, all-satisfying, unifying passion, it would have to be God’s passion.”

  28. 28
    The Logic Of The Bible Says

    “The logic of the Bible says: Act according to God’s “will of command,” not according to his “will of decree.” God’s “will of decree” is whatever comes to pass. “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that” (James 4:15). God’s “will of decree” ordained that his Son be betrayed (Luke 22:22), ridiculed (Isaiah 53:3), mocked (Luke 18:32), flogged (Matthew 20:19), forsaken (Matthew 26:31), pierced (John 19:37), and killed (Mark 9:31). But the Bible teaches us plainly that we should not betray, ridicule, mock, flog, forsake, pierce, or kill innocent people. That is God’s “will of command.” We do not look at the death of Jesus, clearly willed by God, and conclude that killing Jesus is good and that we should join the mockers.”

  29. 29
    Avoid Trivial Pursuits

    “Avoid trivial pursuits. You are a child of God, destined for glory, and called to do great things in His Name. Do not waste your life on hobbies, sports, and other recreational pursuits. Do not throw away the precious moments of your life on entertainment, movies, and video games. Though some of these things can properly have a ‘small place’ in the Christian’s life, we must be careful not to give undue attention to temporal and fruitless activities. Do not waste your life. Employ the time of your youth in developing the character and skills necessary to be a useful servant of God.”

  30. 30
    As I Stumble

    “As I stumble through this life
    help me to create more laughter than tears, dispense more cheer than gloom, spread more joy than despair. Never let me become so indifferent that I will fail to see the wonder in the eyes of a child, or the twinkle in the eyes of the aged. Never let me forget that my total effort is to cheer people, make them happy, and forget momentarily all the unpleasantness in their lives. And in my final moment, may I hear You whisper, ‘When you made My people smile, you made Me smile.”

  31. 31
    Strength Of My Heart

    “Strength of my heart, I need not fail,
    Not mind to fear but to obey,
    With such a Leader, who could quail?
    Thou art as Thou wert yesterday.
    Strength of my heart, I rest in Thee,
    Fulfil Thy purposes through me.”

  32. 32
    Will You Pray

    “Oh, will you pray? Stop now and pray, lest desire turn to feeling and feeling evaporate.”

  33. 33
    If By Doing

    “If by doing some work which the undiscerning consider ‘not spiritual work’ I can best help others, and I inwardly rebel, thinking it is the spiritual for which I crave, when in truth it is the interesting and exciting, then I know nothing of Calvary love.”

  34. 34
    O Thou Who Art

    “O Thou who art my quietness, my deep repose,
    My rest from strife of tongues, my holy hill,
    Fair is Thy pavilion, where I hold me still.
    Back let them fall from me, my clamorous foes,
    Confusions multiplied;
    From crowding things of sense I flee, and Thee I hide.
    Until this tyranny be overpast,
    Thy hand will hold me fast;
    What though the tumult of the storm increase,
    Grant to Thy servant strength, O Lord, and bless with peace.”

  35. 35
    Hereby Perceive

    “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” How often I think of that ‘ought.’ No sugary sentiment there. Just the stern, glorious trumpet call, OUGHT. But can words tell the joy buried deep within? Mine cannot. It laughs at words.”

  36. 36
    Music Originated From God

    “Music originated from God and was created solely for his worship, his glory, and his pleasure.”

  37. 37
    The Point Of Your Life

    “The point of your life is to point to Him. Whatever you are doing, God wants to be glorified, because this whole thing is His.”

  38. 38
    But Whatever You Do

    “But whatever you do, find the God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated passion of your life, and find your way to say it and live for it and die for it. And you will make a difference that lasts. You will not waste your life.”

  39. 39
    God Created Me

    “God created me—and you—to live with a single, all-embracing, all-transforming passion—namely, a passion to glorify God by enjoying and displaying his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life.”

  40. 40
    When We Struggle

    “When we struggle for human rights, for freedom, for dignity, when we feel that it is a ministry of the church to concern itself for those who are hungry, for those who have no schools, for those who are deprived, we are not departing from God’s promise. He comes to free us from sin, and the church knows that sin’s consequences are all such injustices and abuses. The church knows it is saving the world when it undertakes to speak also of such things.”

  41. 41
    We Now Demand

    “We now demand glamour and fast-flowing dramatic action. A generation of Christians reared among push buttons and automatic machines is impatient of slower and less direct methods of reaching their goals…The tragic results of this spirit all all about us: shallow lives, hollow religious philosophies…the glorification of men, trust is religious externalities….salesmanship methods, the mistaking of dynamic personality for the power of the Spirit. These and such of these are the symptoms of an evil disease.”

  42. 42
    When We Are Passionately In Love

    “When we are passionately in love with our Prince, we put Him above all else–not just in theory, but also practically, in every moment of our day-to-day lives. We do not live for the applause of heaven. Our longings are not for people’s approval but only for more and more of Him. We are marked by an effortless, unshakable strength that is found in the presence of our perfect Lover.”

  43. 43
    There Is Nothing

    “There is nothing dreary or doubtful about (the life). It is meant to be continually joyful…We are called to a settled happiness in the Lord whose joy is our strength.”

  44. 44
    We Have One

    “We have one crystal clear reason apart from the blessed happiness of this way of life. It is this: prayer is the core of our day. Take prayer out, and the day would collapse, would be pithless, a straw blown in the wind. But how can you pray–really pray, I mean–with one against who you have a grudge or whom you have been discussing critically with another? Try it. You will find it cannot be done.”

  45. 45
    To The Glory

    “to the glory of His name let me witness that in far away lands, in loneliness (deepest sometimes when it seems least so), in times of downheartedness and tiredness and sadness, always always He is near. He does comfort, if we let Him. Perhaps someone as weak and good-for-nothing as even I am may read this. Don’t be afraid! Through all circumstances, outside, inside, He can keep me close.”

  46. 46
    I Realized That

    “I realized that all my life, my values were based upon typical middle-class American values: hard work, doing good, living well, owning things, following the rules & being the best I can be… but God clearly says, “those are not MY values. I value justice, mercy & humility.”

  47. 47
    All Of Us

    “All of us, poor & rich alike, have been conditioned by our upbringings. Impoverished men & women may become lulled into a state of “learned helplessness” without hope to change their lives. Likewise, the wealthy can walk in a state of “learned blindness” ignoring the desperation of the local & global poor.”

  48. 48
    All Life’s Training

    “All life’s training is just exactly what is needed for the true Life-work, still out of view but far away from none of us. Don’t grudge me the learning of a new lesson.”

  49. 49
    The Mere Telling

    “The mere telling of how a need was met is often like telling of a need, which is asking crookedly instead of straight out. But this much I will say–with every fresh need has come a fresh supply.”

  50. 50
    Do You Want To Be Safe

    “Do you want to be safe from the influence, ways, and lusts of the world and the flesh (I John 2:16)? From the sins which so easily entangles us (Hebrews 12:1)? Then delight in yourself in the Lord, in His provision, in His Word. Faithfully feed on the things that possess true substance and real meaning. When you remember that “all Scripture is given by inspiration by God and is profitable” (2 Timothy 3:16) and partake of such divine substance, then you are fed, you are led and you are safe!”

  51. 51
    As A House

    “As a house can be only be built satisfactorily and durably when there is a foundation, and a picture can be painted only when there is something prepared to paint it on, so carnal love is only legitimate, reasonable, and lasting when it is based on the respect and love of one human being for another.”

  52. 52
    It Is More Important

    “It is more important that you should know about the reverses than about the successes of the war. We shall have all eternity to celebrate the victories, but we have only the few hours before sunset in which to win them. We are not winning them as we should, because the fact of the reverses is so little realized, and the needed reinforcements are not forthcoming, as they would be in the position were thoroughly understood…So we have tried to tell you the truth the uninteresting, unromantic truth.”
