The Quotable Round Up #12

Standard

September was the 36th Manila International Book Fair. I was held at the Mall of Asia SMX convention center. Got some books that I’ll be occupied till next year! It’s a good thing that the Christian publishers are active in the event. In fact almost all of the MIBF booth belongs to Christian companies. That’s a good sign. Filipinos are still concern in matters of spirituality. And it will be a great opportunity for Christians to reach out people with the gospel in MIBF. More of my analysis of the recent MIBF next week but for now here are the quotes:

“By continuing to study the Bible, we grow in faith and are able to stand firm in the truth.”
–R. C. Sproul
“The separation of faith from knowledge is the fast train to crazy town.”
–Michael E. Wittmer

“We are to give ourselves to God as living sacrifices. This means we are to give our time, our energy, and our very selves to Him as acts of worship and gratitude. But we must always be aware that God has given us these and all things. Biblical giving, therefore, is done in the context of stewardship, our management of the good things the Father showers upon us.”
–R. C. Sproul

“Worship that pleases God is not given grudgingly, out of a mere sense of duty to show up at church on Sunday morning, but it is motivated and driven by a soul that delights in the presence of God.”
–R. C. Sproul

“Whatever Jesus says we “ought” to do becomes a solemn duty for us to perform. Prayer is one such duty.”
–R. C. Sproul

“Our goal should be to please Christ, not perform merely for the applause of people. People-pleasers cannot be true servants of Christ. We must keep our eyes on Christ and not on the judges of this world.”
–R. C. Sproul

“If we serve out of an effort to earn our way into the kingdom of God, we’re deceiving ourselves. The motivation for Christian service is love for God. We serve not to earn salvation, but because Christ already has pur-chased salvation for us.”
–R. C. Sproul
