Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Family

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, October 22, 2010 at 9:00 AM

"Whether we like it or not, a breakdown in home-life will eventually lead to a breakdown everywhere. This is, surely, the most menacing and dangerous aspect of the state of society at this present time. Once the family idea, the family unit, the family life is broken up - once that goes, soon you will have no other allegiance."
Martyn Lloyd-Jones

David Brainerd on God

David Brainerd





A.W. Tozer on Worship

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 9:30 AM

"In my opinion, the great single need of the moment is that light-hearted superficial religionists be struck down with a vision of God high and lifted up, with His train filling the temple. The holy art of worship seems to have passed away like the Shekinah glory from the tabernacle. As a result, we are left to our own devices and forced to make up the lack of spontaneous worship by bringing in countless cheap and tawdry activities to hold the attention of the church people."
A.W. Tozer

Charles Spurgeon on the Old and New Testament

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 9:00 AM

The religion of both Old and New Testaments is marked by fervent outspoken testimonies against evil. To speak smooth things in such a case may be sentimentalism, but it is not Christianity. It is a betrayal of the cause of truth and righteousness.  
~C.H. Spurgeon~

Jonathan Edwards on Jesus Christ

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, October 12, 2010 at 11:28 AM




Now can we suppose that Christ came down from heaven and went through all this upon uncertainties, not knowing what purchase he should get, how great or how small? Did he die only upon probabilities, without absolute certainty who, or how many, or whether any should be redeemed by what he did and suffered?  
  ~ Jonathan Edwards ~

Richard Baxter on Assurance

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, October 11, 2010 at 11:35 AM

“Christians, rest not till you can call this, rest your own, sit not down without assurance, get alone, and question with thyself; bring thy heart to the bar of trial, force it to answer the interrogatories put to it, set the conditions of the gospel and qualifications of the saints on one side, and thy performance of those conditions and the qualifications of thy soul on the other side, and then judge how near they resemble.”


“Yet, be sure thou judge by a true touchstone, and mistake not the scripture description of a saint, that thou neither acquit nor condemn thyself upon mistakes : for, as. groundless hopes do tend to confusion and are the greatest cause of most men's damnation; so groundless doubtings do tend to discomforts, and are the great cause of the disquieting of the saints.”


Richard Baxter

A.W. Tozer of Worship

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, October 4, 2010 at 10:57 AM

"The purpose of God in sending His Son to die and rise and live and be at the right hand of God the Father was that He might restore to us the missing jewel, the jewel of worship; that we might come back and learn to do again that which we were created to do in the first place – worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, to spend our time in awesome wonder and adoration of God, feeling and expressing it, and letting it get into our labors and doing nothing except as an act of worship to Almighty God through His Son, Jesus Christ. "
A.W. Tozer


Charles Spurgeon on Spending your Time Wisely

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , , | Posted On Friday, October 1, 2010 at 7:00 AM

As the apostle says to Timothy, so also he says to everyone, ‘Give yourself to reading.’ He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains (inspired by the Holy Spirit) proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read. Renounce as much as you will all light literature, but study as much as possible sound theological works, especially the Puritanic writers and expositions of the Bible. The best way for you to spend your leisure is to be either reading or praying.
~ C.H. Spurgeon ~
