I think our fundamental problem is that we are all idolaters. And when it gets down to it—that is the temptation of the Garden. The serpent looked at Eve and Adam and said, ‘God is not worth living for.’ And every single one of us has that play out every day. A person can say, yes, all of this Bible and Christianity stuff is nice, but the place where I’m really going to find joy is in my ‘fill in the blank.’ Whatever you think is going to give you ultimate satisfaction in life is what you worship. And so the real challenge as you share the gospel is to let people know that God is the ultimate joy and treasure and satisfaction and delight in life. If you don’t have Him, nothing else matters because nothing else measures up and nothing else can last (As Quoted in Mississippi Christian Living, April 1, 2014). Added 12/20/2014
Grace is not an argument against the obligation of obedience. Grace is the means by which we are enabled to obedience! In an age allergic to words like "duty," law," "authority," "ought," and "must," Gods Words are good medicine. We, like Israel, have grown very comfortable with the unrighteousness and irreligion of our own age. We need to hear both of the grace and the demands of the covenant (Source Page on Web was Removed). Added 11/29/2012

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong (Brainy Quote). Added 12/20/2014

Again, it is certain that man never achieves clear knowledge of himself unless he has first looked upon God's face, and then transcends from contemplating him to scrutinize himself Institutes I, I, 1-2, (Reformed Online, Basic Course Lesson 3). Added 12/15/2014
Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them (Protestant Reformers: John Calvin). Added 5/20/2012

We require higher tasks, because we do not recognize the height of those we have. Trying to be kind and honest seems an affair too simple and too inconsequential for gentleman of our heroic mould. (A Christmas Sermon, Published 1900). Added 12/14/2014
