Quotations You Can Use (September 21, 2012)

“If you see a Bible that is falling apart, it probably belongs to someone who isn’t”–Vance Havner.

“A little faith will get you to heaven, but great faith will bring heaven to earth”–Charles Spurgeon.

“We have as much of God as we will. Christ puts the key of the treasure-chamber into our hand, and bids us take all we want. If a man is admitted into the bullion vault of a bank and told to help himself, and comes out with one cent, whose fault is it that he is poor? Whose fault is it that Christian people generally have such scanty portions of the fine riches of God?”–Alexander Maclaren, quoted in The Timothy Report (www.timothyreport.com).

“All my life I looked for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but I found it at the foot of the cross”–Dale Evans.

“It is the inner life of the soul that we must aim to transform, then behavior will naturally and easily follow. But not the reverse. A special term is used in the New Testament to mark the character of the inner life when it is as it should be. This is the term [righteousness]”–Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering our Hidden Life in God, 144.

“Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.”

    Great thinkers! Lord God please grow me to be a doer. Vance Havner’s book title, Playing Marbles With Diamonds, makes me ask “am I?”.
