Hold on and persevere – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Hold on and persevere – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The messengers of Jesus will be hated to the end of time. They will be blamed for all the division which rend cities and homes. Jesus and his disciples will be condemned on all sides for undermining family life, and for leading the nation astray; they will be called crazy fanatics and disturbers of the peace. The disciples will be sorely tempted to desert their Lord. But the end is also near, and they must hold on and persevere until it comes. Only he will be blessed who remains loyal to Jesus and his word until the end.

When sin becomes disgusting – George MacDonald

When sin becomes disgusting – George MacDonald

The salvation of Christ is a salvation from the smallest tendency or leaning to sin. It is deliverance into the pure air of God’s ways of thinking and feeling. It is a salvation that makes the heart pure with the will and the choice of the heart to be pure. To such a heart, sin is disgusting.
