our surety

 

 

When the Lord Jesus Christ became my surety . . . He went to Calvary’s cross, and all my guilt was charged against Him. He settled for everything, and then He cried, ‘It is finished.’ And on the basis of that finished work, God can freely forgive, and justify completely, every poor sinner who trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ. ~H. A. Ironside 

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”  ~II Corinthians 5:21

 

TOZER’S PRAYER

 

“O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, so that I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, ‘Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.’ Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long.”  ~A.W. Tozer

 

THANKSLIVING

 

I think that is a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living. How is this to be done? By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will. ~Charles Spurgeon

 

WALK IN THE SPIRIT

 

What is it to ‘walk in the Spirit’? It is not self-occupation, nor even occupation with the Spirit. Walking according to the Spirit is occupation with the Lord Jesus Christ in glory. If the believer ever looks to the Lord Jesus, depends upon Him, draws all his needs from Him- if He is his All in all- then the believer walks according to the Spirit of Christ. ~Arno C. Gaebelein

FROM SELF TO GOD

 

 

After many years of great mercy, after tasting of the powers of the world to come, we still are so weak, so foolish; but, oh! when we get away from self to God, there all is truth and purity and holiness, and our heart finds peace, wisdom, completeness, delight, joy, victory. ~C. H. Spurgeon

 

A CHILD’S FAITH

 

It is a masterpiece of the devil to make us believe that children cannot understand religion. Would Christ have made a child the standard of faith if He had known that it was not capable of understanding His words? ~Dwight L. Moody  “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” ~Matthew 19:14  “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.” ~Mark 10:15

 

THE METHOD MATTERS

 

When amusement is necessary to get people to listen to the gospel there will be failure. This is not the method of Christ. To form an organization and provide all kinds of entertainment for young people, in order that they may come to the Bible classes, is to be foredoomed to failure.  ~G. Campbell Morgan

 

 

TUNED TO GOD

 

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”  ~A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God
