Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, August 18, 2014 at 5:12 AM

J.R. Miller on the Christian Home

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 5:12 AM

“An ideal Christian home ought to be a place where love rules. It ought to be beautiful, bright, joyous, full of tenderness and affection, a place in which all are growing happier and holier each day. There should never be any discord, any wrangling, any angry words or bitter feelings. The home-life should be a harmonious song without one marring note, day after day. The home, no matter how humble it is, how plain, how small – should be the dearest spot on the earth to each member of the family. It should be made so happy a place, and so full of life, that no matter where one may wander in after years, in any of the ends of the earth – his home should still hold its invisible cords of influence about him, and should ever draw resistless upon his heart. It ought to be the one spot in all the earth, to which he would turn first, when in trouble or in danger. It should be his refuge, in every trial and grief.”

J.R. Miller

Isaac Watts on the Heart

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, August 8, 2014 at 5:30 AM

“The great God values not the service of men if the heart be not in it: The Lord sees and judges the heart; He has no regard to outward forms of worship, if there be no inward adoration, if no devout affection be employed therein. It is therefore a matter of infinite importance, to have the whole heart engaged steadfastly for God.”

Isaac Watts

J.R. Miller

Octavius Winslow on The Bible

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, August 1, 2014 at 5:24 AM

“Apart from the Spirit, cannot quicken, nor sanctify, nor comfort. It may be read constantly, and searched deeply, and known accurately, and understood partially, and quoted appropriately.  Yet, left to its own unassisted power, “it comes but in word only”, producing no hallowing, no abiding, no saving results.”
Octavius Winslow
