In our natural state, we are all the slaves of SELF.

Self in its various forms . . .
  proud self,
  lustful self,
  covetous self,
  righteous self,
  self in some shape or other, is
the idol before whom all carnal knees bow, 
the master whom all carnal hearts serve.

           -J.C. Philpot         




“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer and supplication

and when He has cured us
He desires us to bestow nothing on Him
but our love."

Grace is my shield and Christ is my song.”

Ignorance of the providence of God is the cause of impatience.

John Calvin






Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.

The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

  the jeer of His patience,
  the slight of His power
  the contempt of His love!

the gift of His Son to the world,
and the gift of the world to His Son.”

He bids us reach forward our finger,
that He may guide it into the prints of the nails,
and reach forward our hand,
that He may guide it to His wounded side.
He was not only the Rock cleft for sinners,
but by His Almighty power
He puts us into the cleft of the rock,
and hides us there.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne









“The works of a professing Christian are of great importance.
They cannot save your soul. They cannot justify you.
They cannot wipe out your sins.
They cannot deliver you from the wrath of God.
But it does not follow because they cannot save you,
that they are of no importance.
Take heed and beware of such a notion.
The man who thinks so is fearfully deceived.
Jesus says ‘I know them’.”
- J.C. Ryle






IN THE WORSHIP OF HIM.” Pastor R. De Ruiter

And so much bad in all of us,
That it hardly behooves any of us
To talk about the rest of us.

"It's a good thing God chose me before I was born,

because he surely would not have afterwards." -C.H. Spurgeon




Let the Bible tell its own story, use its own language,  make its own appeals, enforce all these, but add nothing of your own. I see the revisions of the Scriptures is to improverish our language. We ought, instead of driving out words by substitution of modern ones, to force the older ones into more common use. All is in keeping. These fellows are enfeebling our doctine, and it is quite in harmony to enfeeble the language in which it is expressed. -Lord Shafttesbury




It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: "And this too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction! - Abraham Lincoln




  “Within my house.”


It is easier for most men to walk with a perfect heart in the church,

 or even in the world, than in their own familIes.

 How many are as meek as lambs among others

when at home they are as wasps and tigers!   -Adam Clarke




The Word is a glass to show us our spots,

and Christ’s blood is a fountain to wash them away. -Watson           




Preach the gospel everyday; if necessary, use words. -St. Francis of Assisi



Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord;

and our heart is restless until it rests in Thee. -St. Augustine




Seeking Knowledge 

There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge;

That  is Curiosity.


There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others;

    that is Vanity.

There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve;

    that is Love.”

-Bernard of Clairvaux 1090-1153


 "The best way to combat sin is upon your knees."

Thomas Watson


"Love is an act of endless forgiveness"

- Jean Vanier


They are the happiest Christians, who have the
lowest thoughts of themselves, and in whose eyes
Jesus is most glorious and precious.

John Newton's Letters

"Without Me you can do nothing." John 15:5

Just as the sinner's despair of any hope from himself
is the first prerequisite of a sound conversion; so the
loss of all confidence in himself is the first essential
in the believer's growth in grace.

Arthur Pink

"I can do all things through Christ who
 strengthens me." Philippians 4:13


2 Titus 2:1  Thou therefore, my son,
be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.


“Beware of Peter’s word; nor confidently say,
I never will deny Thee, Lord; but, grant I never may.
Man’s wisdom is to seek his strength in God alone;
and e’en an angel would be weak that trusted in his own.”
