"To live by grace means we understand that God's blessing on our lives
is not conditioned by our obedience or disobedience but by the perfect
obedience of Christ. It means that out of a grateful response to the
grace of God, we seek to understand His will and to obey Him, not to be
blessed, but because we have been blessed."

"Loving a holy God is beyond our moral power. The only kind of God we can
love by our sinful nature is an unholy god, an idol made by our own hands.
Unless we are born of the Spirit of God, unless God sheds His holy love
in our hearts, unless He stoops in His grace to change our hearts, we
will not love Him . . . To love a holy God requires grace, grace strong
enough to pierce our hardened hearts and awaken our moribound souls"
"Either Sin will keep you from this Book, or this Book will keep you

"I am sorry for the men who do not read the Bible every day; I
wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and of the
pleasure. It is one of the most singular books in the world, for
every time you open it, some old text that you have read a score of
times suddenly beams with a new meaning. There is no other book I
know of, of which this is true; there is no other book that yields
its meaning so personally, that seems to fit itself so intimately to
the very spirit that is seeking its guidance."
-(Woodrow Wilson 28th
President of the United States)

faith, and you will live and die a better man."

better understanding, then why aren't more of the Greeks and Hebrews
"The Bible is endorsed by the ages. Our civilization is built
upon its words. In no other book is there such a collection of
