grace quotes

I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him.

When you come to religion, you come to a place.When you come to Jesus Christ, you come to a person.

God…doesn’t intend to help us live the Christian life. Immaturity considers the Lord Jesus a Helper. Maturity knows Him to be life itself.

The believer does not have to beg for help. He does have to thankfully appropriate that which is already his in Christ.

Grace is the offer of exactly what we do not deserve. Thus, it cannot be recognized or received until we are aware of precisely how undeserving we really are. It is the knowledge of what we do not deserve that allows us to receive grace for what it is. Unmerited. Unearned. Undeserved. For that reason, grace can only be experienced by those who acknowledge they are undeserving.

Jesus did not come to strike a balance between grace and truth. He brought the full measure of both.

Grace is not reserved for good people; grace underscores the goodness of God.

Grace is inviting to the unrighteous and threatening to the self-righteous.

A lot of people teach that Jesus’ death on the cross was necessary but that it was not enough. But Jesus didn’t come to help you save yourself; He came to save sinners. He didn’t make the down payment and say, ‘All right, here is the installment book. Make sure you keep up the payments.’ No, He paid it. In spinning a robe of your own righteousness, before the sun goes down you will find it all unraveled. He didn’t come to show me how to save myself; He came to save me. He didn’t come to help me save myself; He came to save me. Take your hands off it. Don’t touch it. Accept it like it is. Receive it as a free gift from God Almighty and be saved!

Faith doesn’t make anything happen – faith rests on something that has happened!
