The Quotable Round-Up #17

Standard

A useful hack to give yourself the 20 minutes time to read (which according to studies is essential) is reading while riding a public transport. If you’re not planning to take a nap on a bus, it will be cool if you can pull out a book or Kindle. But be sure you won’t miss your destination! Lets continue our discussion next week but before we wrap up here are our weekly quotes:
“Do you know what the Spirit-filled life is? It is living every moment as though you are standing in the presence of Jesus Christ!”
–John MacArthur Jr.
“The Spirit-filled life is nothing more than living in the conscious presence of the indwelling Christ.”
–John MacArthur Jr.

“You say you do not know what God’s will is,but I’ll tell you what it is.Above all it is that you know Christ and then that your neighbors hear about Christ.That is His will.”
–John MacArthur Jr.

“If I want the words of eternal life, there’s only one place I can go to get them to the One who gave His life, that we might live.”
— R. C. Sproul

“It is at the Word of God that you and I are rescued from spiritual nothingness and made alive to the things of God.”
— R. C. Sproul

“What many people call “psychological problems” are simple issues of idolatry. Perfectionism, workaholism, chronic indecisiveness, the need to control the lives of others—all of these stem from making good things into idols that then drive us into the ground as we try to appease them. Idols dominate our lives.”
— Timothy Keller

“Changing the world can be a way of actually avoiding the opportunities we have every day, right where God has placed us, to glorify and enjoy him and to enrich the lives of others.”
— Michael Horton, Ordinary
