I don’t think the biggest threat to our theology is humanism or the host of world religions. Our biggest threat is cut-and-paste Christianity. If man places his faith in a god he has recreated in his own image, has he placed his faith in God at all? And if not, how can such a man be saved?
My Father, You are the Lord my God. I desire to love You, listen to Your voice, and hold fast to You, for You, Lord, are my life. (Deut. 30:20)
He did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth… . [He] committed Himself to the One who judges justly. 1 Peter 2:22-23
When Eve dropped her shield of faith, every other piece of her spiritual armor became vulnerable.
Salvation is a gift. Godliness is the pursuit.
The reflections of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. Proverbs 16:1
None of the good promises the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed. Everything was fulfilled. Joshua 21:45
Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!
Our victory rests not on faith in our spirituality. Our victory rests on faith in our God.
Oh, God, awake our souls to see-You are what we want, not just what we need. Yes, our life’s protection, but also our heart’s affection. Yes, our soul’s salvation, but also our heart’s exhilaration. Unfailing love-a love that will not let us go!
