In the world but not of it

A collection of profound statements…

We have been greatly encouraged by this. 2 Corinthians 7:13

Over the years we all pick up certain one-liners, statements and other phrases that really say it all. Some of the ones I have found profound and inspiring include:

The cross is either man’s greatest blessing or his worst curse

In spiritual growth there is no retirement age

Life is lived on levels and arrived at in stages

The Spirit and the Word agree, so the Spirit will never lead us to do things that the Word cannot confirm

The counterfeit trinity; me, myself and I

It is better to pray to be ready for opportunities when they come than to actually pray for them to come

Unbelief is the most expensive commodity in life

Perseverance will always outlast persecution

The lowest level of knowledge is assumption. Next is knowledge itself, then understanding, then wisdom (which is what you get when you apply the knowledge), then skill and finally practice…we must be disciplined in practicing

Submission to the will of God does not guarantee that there will be no death. It guarantees that after the death there will be a resurrection

Being mad at God and maintaining a grudge against Him for some perceived injustice means cutting yourself off from the only source of help

The mark of the spiritually potent person is prayer

Private prayer brings blessing and boldness in public appearances

The absence of prayer is a testimony to our ability. The presence of prayer is a testimony to God’s ability

It is better to have something worth dying for than to have nothing worth living for

To the degree you are willing to obey, God will give you understanding

More to come…
