The Pilgrim Path (9-9-2020)

The Pilgrim Path---Ephesians 2: 8, 9 

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

GOD and CHRIST

“Esteem your value as you are related to the other world. Rate yourself by your treasure in heaven, by the pardon of your sins, by your interest in Christ, and by your durable riches and righteousness. These only are the mercies which are worth a thousand millions; all others are but painted cards and brass. Outward mercies serve the flesh, and last for a brittle life; but these mercies concern the soul and relate to eternity.” George Swinnock

“We will never come to know the LORD Jesus Christ as a reality until we see Him as a necessity.” Alistair Begg

“What God says is best, is best, though all the men in the world are against it.” John Bunyan

“Believe that Christ died for you. He suffered for you. He won the battle over sin for you. He rose from the grave for you. He rose from the grave and was victorious over death so that you can live forever.” Billy Graham

“There is a God in heaven who overrules all things for the best; and this is the comfort of my soul…how blessed it is to grow more and more like God!” David Brainerd

“What think we of Christ? Is He altogether glorious in our eyes, and precious to our hearts? May Christ be our joy, our confidence, our all. May we daily be made more like Him, and more devoted to His service.” Matthew Henry

“The love of God is like himself---constant, not capable of augmentation or diminishing. It is like the sun, always the same in its light, though a cloud may sometimes interpose. On whom the Father fixes his love, he loves unto the end. His love is immutable; it does not grow in eternity; and is not diminished at any time. It is an eternal love; it had no beginning and shall have no end…When for a little moment he hides his face, yet he gathers us with everlasting kindness. Does God love his people in their sinning? YES, his people---not their sinning. He does not alter his love towards them, or the purpose of his will, but the dispensations of his grace. He rebukes, chastens, and hides his face from them, but woe, woe it would be to us should he change his love or take away his kindness from us! Those things that seem to be demonstrations of the change of his affections, proceed also from love as much as those which seem the most genuine issues of love!” John Owen

“What we need to know about heaven is not so much where it is, but who is there. Heaven is where my Savior is. Heaven is where the one who has saved me and the one in whom I delight dwells. Therefore, I really do not care where heaven is located, as long as I am there with him and with all those who love him.” Ligon Duncan

“He that does not dedicate himself really to God, wholly to God, only to God, and always to God on earth shall never come to a vision of God in heaven (Second Corinthians 6: 17-18)!” Thomas Brooks

“All of God’s providences are but his touch of the strings of this great instrument of the world. And all his works are excellent because they are the fruit of his wonderful counsel and unsearchable wisdom!” William Charnock

“If you are in Christ, he has put the garment of his righteousness over you. Repentance and trust in the blood of Christ will quench the fire of hell so that it shall never kindle upon you!” Thomas Watson

“Set your faith on the promise that assures us that God will sanctify all our troubles (Psalm 91: 15). He moderates our troubles to the measure and degree they are bearable (Isaiah 27: 8). We will know a safe and comfortable deliverance from them at last (Revelation 7: 17). With these considerations we may recover our hearts out of the hands of our fears again and return them to a quiet and sweet satisfaction in the wise and holy pleasure of our God.” John Flavel

“LORD, life is going by so fast! It frightens me unless I remember your eternity. We are as rootless as tumbleweeds and will be blown about all our lives unless you are our dwelling place. In you we are at HOME. What I have in you I can never lose and will have forever. I praise you for this unfathomable comfort. Amen.” Tim & Kathy Keller

Our God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home.

From Psalm 90 / Isaac Watts, 1719
