A.W. Pink on Man and Difficult Doctrines

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, October 28, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Men, left to themselves, have ever found it impossible to keep the even line of truth between what appear to be conflicting doctrines, such as the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man; election by grace and the universal proclamation of the Gospel; the justifying faith of Paul and the justifying works of James. Only too often, where the absolute sovereignty of God has been insisted upon, it has been to the ignoring of man’s accountability; and where unconditional election has been held fast, the unfettered preaching of the Gospel to the unsaved has been let slip. On the other hand, where human accountability has been upheld and an evangelical ministry been sustained, the sovereignty of God and the truth of election have generally been whittled down or completely ignored.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Grace and Salvation

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 5:30 AM

WE ARE CHRISTIANS ENTIRELY AND SOLELY AS THE RESULT OF THE GRACE OF GOD . Let us remind ourselves once more that grace means “unmerited, undeserved favor.” It is an action that arises entirely from the gracious character of God. So the fundamental proposition is that salvation is something that comes to us entirely from God’s side. What is still more important is this: it not only comes from God’s side, it comes to us in spite of ourselves—“unmerited” favor.

Charles Spurgeon on Good Works

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“The children of God are a holy people. For this very purpose were they born and brought into the world: that they should be holy. For this, they were redeemed with blood and made a peculiar5 people. God’s end in election, the end of all His purposes, is not answered until they become a people zealous of good works.” 


Charles Spurgeon


Archibald Alexander on Faith and Prayer

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Faith and prayer are our chief resources under all the various and heavy afflictions of this life. When all other refuges fail, God will hide His people who seek Him in His secret pavilion and shelter them under the shadow of His wings. Prayer is essential to the existence and growth of the spiritual life. It is the breath of the new man. By this means, he obtains quick relief from innumerable evils and draws down from heaven blessings of the richest and sweetest kind. “

T.S. Arthur on True Religion

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, October 24, 2016 at 5:30 AM


"True religion is more than a correct set of doctrines. It includes a life of good deeds in the world. Unless such a life is led, no matter what a man's faith may be — his religion is vain. Piety, which means devotion to God; and Charity, which consists in acting justly among men — make, when united, the true Christian. Charity is essential; for, if a man does not love his brother whom he has seen — then how can he love God whom he has not seen? Worship, therefore, in the absence of charity, is vain; and the prayers of one who does not deal justly and humanely with his fellow-men, can never ascend into Heaven."

T.S. Arthur

A.W. Tozer on Christianity

“Christianity to the average evangelical church member is simply an avenue to a good and pleasant time, with a little biblical devotional material thrown in for good measure!”

Thomas Watson on Pride

Thomas Guthrie on Salvation

“Purchasing our peace at such a price, God has done more for you and me than for all the universe besides. Creator of earth and heaven, he threw suns from his hand like sparks shot from the fire, and, as a potter turns off clay vessels from his wheel, he fashioned the worlds, and sent them away spinning in their orbits; but here is a greater work.”

Thomas Guthrie


Martyn Lloyd-Jones on the Character of God Giving Hope and Assurance

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , , , | Posted On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Nothing can give me greater hope and assurance than my knowledge of the character of God. ‘I dare not trust the sweetest frame’, as the hymn reminds us, because frames are so changeable, but I can rely upon Him always. God is eternal, God is immutable, God is everlasting; God never changes His purpose. There is no greater comfort or consolation than this. God never starts a work without finishing it.” 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Richard Baxter on Fathers Leading Families

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Lose not your authority by too much familiarity. If you make your children and servants your play-fellows, or equals, and talk to them, and suffer them to talk to you, as your companions, they will quickly grow upon you, and hold their custom ; and though another may govern them, they will scarce ever endure to be governed by you, but will scorn to be subject where they have once been as equal.”

Richard Baxter


Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Fathers Leading Families

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“In the Old Testament, it is quite clear that the father was a kind of priest in his household and family: he represented God.  He was responsible not only for the morals and the behavior but for the instruction of his children.  The Bible’s emphasis everywhere is that this is the primary duty and task of the parents. And it remains so to this day.  If we are Christians at all, we must realize that this great emphasis is based upon those fundamental units ordained by God—marriage, family, and home. You cannot play fast and loose with them.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones


John Calvin on Fathers Leading Their Family

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“So what is to be noted here is that heads of family must go to the trouble of being instructed in God’s Word if they are to do their duty.  If they are stupid, if they do not know the basic principles of religion or of their faith and do not know God’s commandments or how prayer is to be offered to Him or what the road to salvation is, how will they instruct their families?  All the more, then, must those who are husbands and have a family, a household to govern, think, “I must establish my lesson in His Word so that I will not only try to govern myself in accordance with His will, but that I will also bring to it at the same time those who are under my authority and guidance.””

John Calvin


A.W. Pink on Honoring Parents

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, October 3, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“Failure to honor father and mother, wherever it is found, is in large measure due to parental departure from the Scriptural pattern.  Nowadays the father thinks that he has fulfilled his obligations by providing food and raiment for his children, and by acting occasionally as a kind of moral policeman.  Too often, the mother is content to be a domestic drudge, making herself the slave of her children instead of training them to be useful.  She performs many a task that her daughters should do in order to allow them freedom for the frivolities of a giddy set.  The consequence has been that the home, which ought to be— for its orderliness, its sanctity, and its reign of love—a miniature heaven on earth, has degenerated into “a filling station for the day and a parking place for the night,” as someone has tersely expressed it.”

A.W. Pink
