Jesus! Did I SAY that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me? I glanced over at my attorney, but he seemed oblivious...
What is the use of Christ's words, unless we set an example?
Your poem was in praise of Jesus, not in blame of Him--as you meant it to be.
Lunatics! Vain creatures! They don't believe in God, they don't believe in Christ! Why, you are so eaten up with pride and vanity that you'll end up by eating one another, that's what I prophesy.
Blow, blow, ye western wind . . . Christ, that my love were in my arms and I in my bed again. That my love Catherine. That my sweet love Catherine down might rain. Blow her again to me.
I like France, where everybody thinks he's Napoleon--down here everybody thinks he's Christ.
Dear Jesus...how foolish of me to have called for human help when You are here.
If you are worried about the people outside, the most unreasonable thing you can do is remain outside yourself. Christians are Christ's body...every addition to that body enables Him to do more. If you want to help those outside you must add your own little cell to the body of Christ who along can help them. Cutting off a man's fingers would be a odd way of getting him to do more work.
Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. ... We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means-the only complete realist.
Putting on Christ'...is not one among many jobs a Christian has to do; and it is not a sort of special exercise for the top class. It is the whole of Christianity. Christianity offers nothing else at all.
We do know that no person can be saved except through Christ. We do not know that only those who know Him can be saved by Him.
There have been men before à who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God himselfà as if the good Lord had nothing to do but to exist. There have been some who were so preoccupied with spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ.
I could never work out whether we were to view religion as a life-insurance policy or a life sentence. I can understand a wrathful God who'd just as soon dangle us all from a hook. And I can understand a tender, unprejudiced Jesus. But I could never quite feature the two of them living in the same house. You wind up walking on eggshells, never knowing which... is at home at the moment.
When Jesus was born, he was already the son of God. I was the daughter of someone who ran away, a big disgrace. And when Jesus suffered, everyone worshipped him. Nobody worshipped me for living with Wen Fu. I was like that wife of Kitchen God. Nobody worshipped me either. He got all the excuses. He got all the credit. She was forgotten.
Christ, I'm in Hell and they wear uniforms.
Christ himself was poor.... And as he was himself, so he informed his apostles and disciples, they were all poor, prophets poor, apostles poor.
For in Jesus Christ there is neither male nor female, bond nor free; even you may be the children of God, if you believe in Jesus.
Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.
One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you, instantly, forever.
The dearest friend on earth is a mere shadow compared to Jesus Christ.
There the union of Church and State tends strongly to paralyze some of the members of the body of Christ. Here there is no such influence to destroy spiritual life and power.
Farewell all relations and friends in Christ; farewell acquaintances and all earthly enjoyments; farewell reading and preaching, praying and believing, wanderings, reproaches, and sufferings.
Nothing is more prominently brought forward in the New Testament than the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Saving faith is an immediate relation to Christ, accepting, receiving, resting upon Him alone, for justification, sanctification, and eternal life by virtue of God's grace.
First I just thought it was your typical display, I thought it might be an angel holding Jesus kind of thing. But then I got closer and noticed Jesus was wearing camouflage. So I was like - that's not Jesus.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do,
In contrast, Christianity, while acknowledging the presence of suffering, declares that life can be infinitely worth living and opens the way to eternal life in fellowship with God Who so loved the world that He gave Himself in Christ.
Hark the herald-angels sing, 'Glory to the new-born King Peace on earth, and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled.' Christ, by highest heav'n adored, Christ, the everlasting Lord, Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of a virgin's womb Veiled in flesh the Godhead see Hail th' incarnate Deity Pleased as man with men to 'ppear, Jesus our Immanu'l here. Hail the heav'n-born Prince of peace Hail the Sun of righteousness Light and life to all He brings, Ris'n with healing in His wings. Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. Come, Desire of nations, come, Fix in us Thy humble home Rise, the woman's conquering Seed Bruise in us the serpent's head. Adam's likeness now efface, Stamp Thine image in its place Second Adam from above, Reinstate us in Thy love. Amen.
Revenge is a common passion it is the sin of the uninstructed. The savage deems it noblebut the religion of Christ, which is the sublime civilizer, emphatically condemns it. Why Because religion ever seeks to ennoble man and nothing so debases him as revenge.
It is my solemn witness that God lives, and that Jesus is the Christ. He lives and loves us and desires our happiness always. He died for us, not because he had to, but because he wanted to. He would die again, if it would help us. Through Christ and the Father, a plan was laid out which gave purpose and promise to mortal life, even though Satan would declare it meaningless and futile.
