Quote :: Lordship

Lordship

"So I say to you, seek God and discover Him and make Him a power in your life. Without Him all of our efforts turn to ashes and our sunrises into darkest nights. Without Him life is a meaningless drama with the decisive scenes missing. But with Him we are able to rise from the fatigue of despair to the buoyancy of hope. With Him we are able to rise from the midnight of desperation to the daybreak of joy. St. Augustine was right - we were made for God and we will be restless until we find rest in Him." - Martin Luther King, Jr., in The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr., compiled by Coretta Scott King

"Remember - Christianity proposes not to extinguish our natural desires. It promises to bring the desires under just control and direct them to their true object. In the case of both riches and of honor, it maintains the consistency of its character. But Christianity commands us not to set our hearts on earthly treasures. It reminds us that 'we have in heaven a better and more enduring substance' than this world can bestow (Heb. 10:34)." - William Wilberforce in Real Christianity

"Holy Spirit, think through me till your ideas are my ideas". - Amy Carmichael in The Doubleday Prayer Collection

"For one who has made thanksgiving the habit of his life, the morning prayer will be, 'Lord, what will you give me today to offer back to you?'" - Elisabeth Elliot in Love Has a Price Tag

"We and Christianity are the same in one thing only: We demand the entire person!" - Nazi Judge Roland Freisler quoted in For the Soul of the People: Protestant Protest Against Hitler, by Victoria Barnett

"He who loves God with all his heart dreads neither death, torment, judgment, nor hell, for perfect love opens a sure passage to God." - Thomas a Kempis in The Imitation of Christ

"If we can live one day with Jesus, we can live life every day with Him, each one as it comes. Immanuel, a name for Christ, means 'God with us.' Human life was meant to be dramatic. We are meant to be God-inhabited. Our religion is not organized around keeping God at a distance. It allows us to go see him when we want. If I really want God to be with me, then my life will be extremely different from ordinary human life. The outcome will be far greater than the efforts." - Ingrid Trobisch in The Confident Woman
