Dwight Moody
  • “A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough for the next six months, or take sufficient air into his lungs at one time to sustain life for a week. We must draw upon God’s boundless store of grace from day to day as we need it.”

  • Prayer can become a positive source of power in our life only when we develop a custom of praying everyday.

dr david jeremiah
Dr. David Jeremiah
  • “How can we pray v:11 selfishly, tritely, and materialistically when we’ve just finished praying ‘Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ We can’t. When we pray according to Jesus, our petition is in the proper context. ‘Lord, in the context of Your will being done on this earth, please meet the need that I have for today. You know better what those needs are than I do.’ What we think is best at one stage in life may be just the opposite of what we experience later.”

John Piper
  • “Making a million-dollar salary is not a sin. The evil, however, is in thinking that a million-dollar salary must be accompanied by a million-dollar lifestyle. God has made us to be the conduits of His grace and the danger is in thinking that the conduit should be lined with gold.”
james 2 16 17
James 2:16-17
  • 16 If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

Holy Bible : New Living Translation. 1997 . Tyndale House: Wheaton, Ill.

Another Difference Between A Hotel and God’s House
  • In a hotel, you stay temporarily; you’re only a guest. And when you leave, you pay for every service you used.
  • In the Father’s house, you’re the member of a family forever; you belong. And you receive all the riches of the Father’s grace free from His hand.
john 6 47 51
John 6:47-51
  • 47 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
