REBUKE AND GRACE

How is it then that miserable men dare to be proud, either of their free will, before they are freed, or of their own strength, if they have been freed? They do not observe that in the very mention of free will they pronounce the name of liberty. But “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. ” If, therefore, they are the slaves of sin, why do they boast of free will? For by what a man is overcome, to the same is he delivered as a slave. But if they have been freed, why do they vaunt themselves as if it were by their own doing, and boast, as if they had not received? Or are they free in such sort that they do not choose to have Him for their Lord who says to them: “Without me ye can do nothing;” and “If the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed?” 
– Augustine, On Rebuke and Grace, Chp. 52

Did God get much

When you go out of a Church meeting and say, "I didn't get much out of that meeting tonight." That's not the point! How much did God get out of it? Did He get worshipped? Did He get adoration? Our only business on earth is to glorify GOD
You don't worship God standing up... you worship God on your belly....worship is speechless adoration! How much time have you spent with Jesus today? When is the last time you've gone to Him and said, "I'm not going to ask you for a thing... I come to worship you in spirit and in truth." via. K.S.R.

GOD PRODUCES ALL

In efficacious grace we are not merely passive, nor yet does God do some and we do the rest. But God does all, and we do all. God produces all, we act all. For that is what produces, viz. our own acts. God is the only proper author and fountain; we only are the proper actors. We are in different respects, wholly passive and wholly active.---Jonathan Edwards

WHO IS WITH ME

I am keeping the incarnation, perfection, substitution, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, reigning, returning, and exaltation of God in the public discussion. Who is with me?

WONDERFUL WORDS OF JESUS

I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are wise and very beautiful; but I have never read in either of them: "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden." ~Augustine

Quote, "The earthen-ness of the vessel does not take away from the excellency of the treasure."
