Considering that I need to get to bed on account of an early-morning exam, I'm postponing our usual study post for a day or two and instead sharing a few of my favorite Christian quotes today. I hope they're uplifting, challenging, and helpful to you.
Satan watches for those vessels that sail without convoy.
- George Swinock
This is a wise, sane Christian faith: that a man commit himself, his life, and his hopes to God; that God undertakes the special protection of that man; that therefore that man ought not to be afraid of anything.
- George MacDonald
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace. It is so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.

The winds of God are always blowing, but you must set the sails.
Love is an action, not a feeling. Love is a choice. In fact, love is a commandment.

I make it a rule of Christian duty never to go to a place where there is not room for my Master as well as myself.
- John Newton
If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees. Let no one go there unwarned or unprayed for.
- Charles H. Spurgeon
To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge, to find the will of God is the greatest discovery, and to do the will of God is the greatest achievement.
Whenever a man is ready to uncover his sins, God is always ready to cover them.
Death is not a period but a comma in the story of life.
- Amos J. Farver
Our faith should be our steering wheel, not our spare tire.
- C.L. Wheeler
Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush is afire with God. And only he who sees takes off his shoes, the rest sit around and pluck blackberries.
- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Some Christians haven't even attempted to think about whether or not they would die for Jesus because they haven't really been living for Him.

If God would concede to me His omnipotence for twenty-foru hours, you would see how many changes I would make in this world. But if He gave me His wisdom, too, I would leave things as they are.

The Son of God became the Son of man so that the sons of men might become the sons of God.

The greatest proof of Christianity for others is not how far a man can logically analyze his reasons for believing, but how far in practice he will stake his life on his belief.

I resolve to endeavor to my utmost to act and think as if I had already seen the happiness of heaven and the torments of hell.

Suffer me to follow the example of the passion of my God.
- Ignatius of Antioch
There remains for us only the very narrow way, often extremely difficult to find, of living everyday as though it were our last, and yet living in faith and responsibility as though there were to be a great future.
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.
- William Cowper
There are...few stronger indications of ignorance of the power of evil and sin than the confident assertion of our ability to resist and subdue it.

Live your life in such a way, that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.
- Will Rogers
Christianity is a battle, not a dream.
- Wendell Phillips
WHAT God did makes sense. It makes sense that Jesus would be our sacrifice because a sacrifice was needed to justify man's presence before God...However, WHY God did it is absolutely absurd. When one leaves the method and examines the motive, the carefully stacked blocks of logic begin to tumble. That type of love isn't logical; it can't be neatly outlined in a sermon or explained in a term paper...It IS inexplicable. It doesn't have a drop of logic nor a thread of rationality. And yet, it is that very irrationality that gives the gospel its greatest defense. For only God could love like that.
- Max Lucado
God is the only comfort, He is also the supreme terror...Some people talk as if meeting hte gaze of absolute goodness would be fun. They need to think again. They are only playing with religion.
- C.S. Lewis
