A person's religion may well be suspected when they are content to go to heaven alone.  ~JC Ryle

With the wolves you cannot be too severe. With the weak sheep you cannot be too gentle.  ~Martin Luther

All work and no play doesn't make "Jack" a dull boy; it makes him an idolater.  ~Scotty Smith

Freedom is not so much the absence of restrictions as finding the right ones. ~Tim Keller

Hebrews 6:15: And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise.

Aim at joy, and you will miss it. Aim at Christ and his cross-bearing call, and you will find it.  ~Dane Ortlund

Jesus is that which makes everything else without him nothing.  ~Bob Kauflin

While God is love, love is not God.  ~Jared Wilson

If you can't understand the Bible, keep reading. The Bible understands you.  ~Alistair Begg

The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man.  ~G.K. Chesterton

Whoever is not satisfied with Christ alone, strives after something beyond absolute perfection.  ~John Calvin

The concept of substitution may be said  to lie at the heart of both sin and salvation. For the essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man. Man asserts himself against God and puts himself where only God deserves to be; God sacrifices himself for man and puts himself where only man deserves to be. Man claims prerogatives which belong to God alone; God accept penalties which belong to man alone.  ~John Stott

Want others to love what you love? Love it well in front of them.  ~Lore Ferguson

Hebrews 4:14-16: Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
