The Quotable Round Up #10

Standard

Do you have a personal Bible study? Aside from the Bible, what tools do you use to further benefit in studying God’s Word? If you ask me I have a commentary of a specific book of the Bible and a devotional book. For me it has proven to give me a deeper understanding of the Bible and it strengthen my life as a Christian. I hope you’ll consider that too. Anyways, enjoy this week’s quote:
“We cannot think as the world thinks, act as the world acts, talk as the world talks, or set goals the world sets; we must be distinct. The ultimate hope of humanity is that in seeing that distinction, lost people will be drawn to Jesus Christ.”
–John F. MacArthur Jr.
“Connecting prayer and Bible reading allows you to build momentum in your spiritual disciplines and ensure that you are consistently engaging in these vital practices the Lord has given us to conform us to his image.”
— Matt Rogers
“Preach to yourself the immeasurable, matchless bounty of God’s love for you.”
— J. A. Medders
“The Bible declares the word of the King of the universe, God himself, to you and me. This message is far from trite. His word is living and active, speaking to us in a personal way. What a glorious privilege to consider that God would humble himself by speaking in words that people like us can understand.”
–Matt Rogers
“To convince a man that God can save, I need to show him a man He saved. To convince a man that God can give hope, I need to show him a man with hope. To convince a man that God can give peace, joy, and love, I need to show him a man with peace, joy, and love. To convince a man that God can give complete, total, and utter satisfaction, I need to show him a satisfied man. When the world sees people who are holy, righteous, peaceful, joyful, and fulfilled, they see the evidence of God’s transforming power.”
–John F. MacArthur Jr.
“God has given His truth to us as a sacred treasure for His own glory and the good of men, and we must guard it as our most precious possession. Churches that abandon the truth destroy their only reason for existing and give unbelievers cause to blaspheme God. That’s ultimately what is at stake in the way we live.”
–John F. MacArthur Jr.
“The credibility of the Christian gospel is inseparably linked to the integrity of the lives of those who proclaim it.”
–John F. MacArthur Jr.
