New Creation.

May these words boast only in the Cross.

“the incarnation [helps us] understand there is no substitute for dwelling with physical people in a physical place.”

– Kevin DeYoung

“The person never sets priorities is the person who does not believe in his own finitude. We don’t expect to be able to buy anything want, because we know there is a limit to our money. But somehow we live as if time knew no bounds, when in fact time is much more limited than money. Wealth can be created, but no one has the ability to grow more time.”

– Kevin DeYoung

“Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven,
and he who testifies for me is on high.”

– Job 16:19

“I think we have at least two great cultural challenges when it comes to loving one another at this time. The first is that we are all so busy and distracted that we have trouble making time in our schedules to love one another. The second is that we have trouble loving people who are very different from ourselves. We find it easy to love in simple ways, but difficult to love in uncomfortable ways. Here is how I have been challenged recently: Until your love inconveniences you and makes you uncomfortable, you may not have loved at all. The gospel necessarily compels us to love people in uncomfortable and inconvenient ways. After all, this is exactly how we have been loved by Jesus Christ.”

– Tim Challies

“The rod of discipline must rest upon us in our measure, but it works for us the comfortable fruits of righteousness; and therefore by the help of the divine Comforter, we, a “people saved by the LORD,” will rejoice in the God of our salvation.”

“By our very nature as Christians we are bound to others. We need them and they need us. That is how God fashioned his Church to work as Christ’s beloved Bride. As such, we cannot forsake the assembling of ourselves together.”

– Scotty Smith

“You shall, it is true, often engage in combat; but your fight will be with a defeated foe. His head is broken; he may attempt to injure you, but his strength will not be sufficient for his malicious design. Your victory shall be easy, and your treasure shall be beyond all measure.”

Charles Spurgeon via Alistair Begg

“Christian habits are goods to be cultivated, but they are not standards to shame us.”
