"If you look at the world you will be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God you will be at rest."
 
                                                               Corrie Ten Boom     
                                                                    
 
"Here I stand, I can do none else. God help me!"
 
                                                              Martin Luther
 
"The greatest kindness we can do to one that is walking in a dangerous way, is to tell him of his danger." 
 
                                  John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
 
"Worldly men have in all ages been alike absurd in their views of religion. They would have the preacher fit his doctrine to the fashion of the times, and the taste of the hearers, and yet to add 'Thus saith the Lord' to words that men would put into their mouths." 
 
                                           Matthew Henry's Commentary
 
 
"Converts everywhere, but few disciples."
 
                                                           Shirley Weaver
 
"Vision creates passion and passion creates discipline.  Discipline creates risk taking."
 
                                                            Jim Hylton
 
"Courage isn't the absence of fears, it is going forward in spite of your fears."
 
                                             Author Unknown
 
The church, in so many ways, is a sort of potter's field where the gifts of women, as so many strangers, are buried.  How long, O Lord, how long before man shall roll away the stone that we may see a resurrection?
 
                                       Phoebe Palmer (1807-1874)
                    American Preacher and social reformer (2)
 
 
"Risk taking without discipline is recklessness.  Discipline without passion is legalism.  Passion without vision is hype."
                                 
                                                                   Jim Hylton
 
"Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of husbands. Remember all men would be tyrants if they could."
 
"If we mean to have heroes, statesmen and philosophers, we should have learned women."

 "
I've always felt that a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting points of view he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic."

"
Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence."

"Great necessities call out great virtues."

"We have too many high-sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them."

"You do not need to quote great men in order to prove that you are one."                                    
                                               Abigail Adams, First Lady
                                              United States of America

"Cheap grace," writes Dietrich Bonhoefer, "means the justification of sin without the justification of the sinner. Grace alone does everything, they say, and so everything can remain as it was before....Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession, absolution without personal confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.

"Costly grace is the hidden treasure in the field; for the sake of it a man will gladly go and sell all that he has....Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. It is costly because it condemns sin, and grace because it justifies the sinner. Above all, it is costly because it cost God the life of His Son: 'ye were bought with a price', and what has cost God much cannot be cheap for us. Above all, it is grace because God did not reckon His Son too dear a price to pay for our life, but delivered Him up for us, Costly grace is the Incarnation of God."

                                                           Dietrich Bonhoefer
