Happy are those Christians – JC Ryle

Happy are those Christians who have learned of Jesus to live for others more than for themselves, and who understand that is is “more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)

Claiming Bible Verses – Eric Metaxas

Claiming Bible Verses – Eric Metaxas

Another version of the “Prosperity Gospel” or “Name It and Claim It” teaching has to do with finding a verse in the Bible and then “claiming” that verse. Proponents of this thinking believe that God must fulfill his promise to us in whatever verse we are “claiming”… We need to have faith in what the Bible says, but we have to be careful that we aren’t trying to force God to do what we want. That is arrogance rather than humility. God loves us, but we cannot demand things of him as though our faith is in charge rather than God.

Showing the love of God – DL Moody

Showing the love of God – DL Moody

If we have got the true love of God shed abroad in our hearts, we will show it in our lives. We will not have to go up and down the earth proclaiming it. We will show it in everything we say or do.
