We need a Savior

Most of us have never really understood that Christianity is not a self-help religion meant to enable moral people to become more moral. We don’t need a self-help book; we need a Savior. We don’t need to get our collective act together; we need death and resurrection and the life-transforming truths of the gospel. And we don’t need them just once, at the beginning of our Christian life; we need them every moment of every day.
~ Elyse Fitzpatrick

Forgiveness

“Don’t say, “How could God forgive me for that!” (whatever that is). Don’t think that God’s forgiveness is a begrudging forgiveness and with that thought deny some of God’s glorious love. And don’t think that God’s promises are only for other people. If this is how you are thinking, you must realize that your own sins, no matter how big, are not bigger than God’s pleasure in forgiveness.”
~ Ed Welch

Jesus Alone

“Jesus is not one of many ways to approach God, nor is He the best of several ways; He is the only way.”
~ A.W. Tozer

 

 

Grace Alone

“If God finds incentives for grace within Himself, then nothing in us can disqualify us from His grace – nothing except a proud unwillingness to be loved on terms of grace alone.”
~ Ray Ortlund

Beliefs

“We do not believe in belief any more than we have faith in faith. We believe the gospel, and we have faith in Christ. Our beliefs have substance and our faith has an object.”
~ Albert Mohler

The Crucified Christ

“To be a follower of the Crucified Christ means, sooner or later, a personal encounter with the cross. And the cross always entails loss.”
~ Elisabeth Elliot

Loving

“You can always give without loving, but you can never love without giving.”
~ Amy Carmichael

Grace

“For almost twenty years and I still feel the old clinging dirt of wanting to deal with God that I may contribute something, so that He will have to give me His grace in exchange for my holiness. And still I cannot get into my head that I should surrender myself completely to sheer grace.” 
~ Martin Luther
