Note for my Readers:
If thou findest me short in things, impute that to my love of brevity.
If thou findest me besides the truth in aught [any respect], impute that to my infirmity.
But if thou findest anything here that serves to your furtherance and joy of the faith, impute that to the mercy of God bestowed on thee and me.
Yours to serve you with what little I have.
- John Bunyan
The Gospel is not moral conformity, religion, neither is it self discovery, secularism. The Gospel brings restructure of the heart, removal of our sin, and reversal of our values.
- Tim Keller
”The secret to freedom from enslaving patterns of sin is worship. You need worship. You need great worship. You need weeping worship. You need glorious worship. You need to sense God’s greatness and to be moved by it, moved to tears and moved to laughter, moved by who God is and what He has done for you. And this needs to be happening all the time. This type of worship is the only thing that can replace the little “if only” fire burning in your heart. We need a new fire that says, “if only I saw the Lord. If only He was close to my heart, If only I could feel Him to be as great as I know Him to be. If only I could taste His grace as sweet as I know it to be”. And when that “if only” fire is burning in your heart, then you are free.
