Give up ALL for Christ – George Whitefield

Give up ALL for Christ – George Whitefield

There is no being a Christian without giving up all for Christ. We must all have the spirit of martyrdom, though we may not all die martyrs.

Guidance Demands Obedience – Elisabeth Elliot

Guidance Demands Obedience – Elisabeth Elliot

Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person’s seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next.

Release your grasp on the temporal – Jim Elliot

Release your grasp on the temporal – Jim Elliot

Father, let me loose my clutch on everything temporal. My life, my reputation, my possessions, Lord, let me loose the tension of the grasping hand. Open my hand to receive the nail of Calvary, as Christ’s was opened. He thought Heaven, yea, equality with God, not a thing to be clutched at. So let me release my grasp.

Confess Our Sins – Alan Redpath

It’s Satan’s delight to tell me that once he’s got me, he will keep me. But at that moment I can go back to God. And I know that if I confess my sins, God is faithful and just to forgive me.

The only deal on the table – Alan Vincent

The only deal on the table – Alan Vincent

Jesus has no intention of helping anyone live a better life. He only had one intention and that is to totally kill you. And then live in your place. That is the only deal on the table.

Beside the Shepherd – AW Tozer

Beside the Shepherd – AW Tozer

The only safe place for sheep is by the side of the shepherd, because the devil does not fear sheep; he just fears the shepherd.
