Build Your Life Around Jesus Christ

View the Archives

The Christian thinks any good he does comes from the Christ-life inside him. He does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us; just as the roof of a greenhouse does not attract the sun because it is bright, but becomes bright because the sun shines on it.

– CS Lewis –

Nothing is too big for God to accomplish, and nothing is too little for Him to use in accomplishing it!

– Unknown –

God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him.

– Andrew Murray –

Dear Friend,
God loves you, therefore seek Him diligently;
Pray to Him earnestly. Read His Word constantly.
Jesus is the Comfort.

– Evan Roberts –

If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

– CS Lewis –

God has hidden every precious thing in such a way that it is a reward to the diligent, a prize to the earnest, but a disappointment to the slothful soul. All nature is arrayed against the lounger and the idler. The nut is hidden in its thorny case; the pearl is buried beneath the ocean waves; the gold is imprisoned in the rocky bosom of the mountains; the gem is found only after you crush the rock which encloses it; the very soil gives its harvest as a reward to the laboring farmer. So truth and God must be earnestly sought.

– AB Simpson –

Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.

– CS Lewis –
