Christian Quote of the Day
What a wonderful thing it is to be sure of one’s faith! How wonderful to be a member of the evangelical church, which preaches the free grace of God through Christ as the hope of sinners! If we were to rely on our works, what would become of us?
G. F. Handel
To do what others do when, deep down, one knows it is wrong is moral cowardice, which does not lessen guilt but increases it.
— J. I. Packer
Come, Holy Spirit, God and Lord!
Be all thy graces now out-poured
On the believer’s mind and soul,
To strengthen, save, and make us whole.
— Martin Luther
