The Christian’s Safety – Thomas Watson

The Christian’s Safety – Thomas Watson

The fear of God is a Christian’s safety. He is invulnerable; nothing can hurt him. Plunder him of his money, he carries a treasure about him of which he cannot be robbed (Isa. 33:6). Cast him into prison his conscience is free; kill his body, it shall rise again. He who has on this breastplate of God’s fear may be shot at, but can never be shot through.

– Thomas Watson –
from The Great Gain of Godliness, 1682

Find Contentment – Jeremiah Burroughs

Find Contentment – Jeremiah Burroughs

A man whose bones are filled with marrow, and his veins with good blood does not complain of the cold as others do. So a gracious heart, having the Spirit of God within him, and his heart filled with grace has that within him that makes him find contentment.

– Jeremiah Burroughs –
from The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, 1648 

Do this if you want be holy – Charles Spurgeon

Do this if you want be holy – Charles Spurgeon

If you think you can walk in holiness without keeping up perpetual fellowship with Christ, you have made a great mistake. If you would be holy, you must live close to Jesus.

How do you do the Lord’s work? – Corrie Ten Boom

How do you do the Lord’s work? – Corrie Ten Boom

Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.

– Corrie Ten Boom –

God one desire for humanity – Oswald Chambers

God one desire for humanity – Oswald Chambers

God has one destined end for mankind—holiness! His one aim is the production of saints. God is not an eternal blessing-machine for men. He did not come to save men out of pity. He came to save men because He had created them to be holy.

– Oswald Chambers –
