Tidbits Tuesday

Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world. There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never quite keep their promise.

– C. S. Lewis


The heavy hand of trial in the life of the believer is actually the loving hand of redeeming grace.

– Paul David Tripp

By praying with friends and others, you will be able to hear and see facets of Jesus that you have not yet perceived.

– Tim Keller

The gospel shows us that God is far more holy and absolute than the moralists’ god, because he could not be satisfied by our moral efforts, even the best! On the other hand, the gospel shows us that God is far more loving and gracious than the relativists’ god. They say that God (if he exists) just loves everyone no matter what they do. The true God of the gospel had to suffer and die to save us, while the god of the relativist pays no price to love us.

– Tim Keller

Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word.

J.C. Ryle, Holiness

The better we know God, the more we will want all our existence to revolve around him.

– D. A. Carson

The cross was an act simultaneously of punishment and amnesty, severity and grace, justice and mercy.

John Stott
