When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer. [Corrie Ten Boom]

The mystery of Christ, that He sunk Himself into our flesh, is beyond all human understanding. [Martin Luther]

One great power of sin is that it blinds men so that they do not recognize its true character. [Andrew Murray]

Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God because He said so. [C.S. Lewis]

Jesus' position as the one mediator excludes all others who claim to be a path to God.

Will power does not change men. Time does not change men. Christ does. [Henry Drummond]

A great many people are trying to make peace, but that has already been done. God has not left it for us to do; all we have to do is enter into it. [Dwight L. Moody]

But I quit (depart from) life as I would an inn, not as I would a home. [Cicero]

Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man. [D.L. Moody]

Perhaps if there were more of that intense distress for souls that leads to tears, we should more frequently see the results we desire. [Hudson Taylor]

True wealth isn't measured by your bank account or your wisdom. Believers, as joint heirs with Christ [Romans 8:17] have access to God's riches, which include unspeakable joy, unconditional love, and peace beyond understanding. Invest in your spiritual life and enjoy these blessings of grace.

Simply hearing and believing doesn't make a concept yours. A principle is yours when you explore the truth, discover its place in your life, and apply the principle so that God can make it work.

To become effective servants of God, we must let go of our self-righteousness that says, "I know what is right," our self-will that claims, "I know what is best for me," and our self-centeredness that declares, "what I want is most important."

Believers are here to point others to the Lord whom they serve. We are a reflection of His light and glory. It is He who not only gives opportunity to shine but also equips us with the strength and gifts to work for the kingdom. As bright as we may be, we are nothing apart from the Lord.

Jesus Christ is not valued at all until He is valued above all. [Augustine]
