Every sin is an exercise in trust of something or someone other than the one true God to satisfy, fulfill, or bless.  ~Jared Wilson

Deity with the humanity constituted the one offering which has perfected forever the salvation of those who are sanctified. Profoundly and awfully mysterious as is this truth, faith can receive it. It towers above my reason, and yet it does not contradict my reason. While it transcends and baffles it, it does not oppose nor supersede it. Christian reader, the blood upon which you depend for your salvation is not ordinary blood; the blood of a mere human being, however pure and sinless; but it is the blood of the incarnate God.  ~Octavius Winslow

Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it yet?
~Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.  ~Martin Luther

Give thy servants the courage to say No to everything that makes it more difficult to say Yes to thee. ~Peter Marshall

Faith is trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse. ~Philip Yancey

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. ~CS Lewis

Your security does not rest on the size of what you're facing or on your maturity, but on the character of the One who offers you his grace. ~Paul Tripp
