Given so much,
What have I done to
No wonder my heart
from "Unfinished Sentences"
Our faith is rooted in the revelation of Scripture -
it does not depend on culture (which shifts every few generations)
nor emotion (which changes with every passing day) -
it rests on the veracity of God's Word.
Believe God’s love and power more than
you believe your own feelings and experiences.
Your rock is Christ,
and it is not the rock that ebbs and flows but the sea.
Isn’t is amazing that
almost everyone has an opinion to offer about the Bible,
and yet so few have studied it?
R. C. Sproul
Faith is seeing the invisible, but not the nonexistent.
Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II
The stone was rolled away from the tomb not so Jesus could get out,
but so that the world could look in.
His resurrection assures yours.
Because He lives, you will live forever.
The resurrection never becomes a fact of experience
until the risen Lord lives in the heart of the believer.
When we accept Christ we enter into three new relationships:
(1) We enter into a new relationship with God.
The judge becomes the father;
the distant becomes the near;
strangeness becomes intimacy
and fear becomes love.
(2) We enter into a new relationship with our fellow men.
Hatred becomes love;
selfishness becomes service;
and bitterness becomes forgiveness.
(3) We enter into a new relationship with ourselves.
Weakness becomes strength;
frustration becomes achievement;
and tension becomes peace.
