Immortality is the glorious discovery of Christianity.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird:
it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.
We are like eggs at present.
And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg.
We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
Prayer is not asking.
Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God,
at his disposition,
and listening to his voice in the depths of our hearts.
Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible.
There is no glory for God in that which is humanly possible.
Faith begins where man's power ends.
We do not need more intellectual power, we need more spiritual power.
We do not need more of the things that are seen,
we need more of the things that are unseen.
God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience.
I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will,
a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.
We do not segment our lives,
giving some time to God, some to our business or schooling,
while keeping parts to ourselves.
The idea is to live all of our lives in the presence of God,
under the authority of God, and for the honor and glory of God.
That is what the Christian life is all about.
R. C. Sproul
If we make our goal to live a life of compassion and unconditional love,
then the world will indeed become a garden
where all kinds of flowers can bloom and grow.
Thou hast made us for Thyself,
and the heart of man is restless until it finds its rest in Thee.
Our Lord’s first obedience was to the will of his Father, not to the needs of men;
the saving of men was the natural outcome of his obedience to the Father.
