8 Favorite Quotes From the Book “Surviving The Trenches” (Joe Barnard)

I have a some translation project coming this year that would like to share to everyone for free. I have two to translate and probably add another one. I’ll be sharing it as an e-book. I hope and pray that you can be a part of this project by lifting me up in your prayers. If you have been blessed with this blog’s content, you can check the end of this article to know how to support me by financially.

Anyways, Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, Surviving the Trenches by Joe Barnard published by Christian Focus Publications. You can get your copy in physical format by following this link. Purchasing your copy enables you to support the author, publishing house and ministry to further push the gospel of Christ.

“As Christians, we can never measure our potential by our experience. Past failure is never an accurate gauge for future progress. The reason for this is because the strength of the Christian life is found in Christ, not the self.”

“Satan loves nothing more than to convince Christians that the cameras of heaven are of f and that no one is watching. We need to bust this myth. Nothing will more ef f ectively promote vigilance than an ongoing awareness that the eyes of heaven are upon us.”

“It is only by remembering and cherishing the goodness of God that the crust of sin begins to crack and streams of living water begin to work their way back to the surface of the heart.”

“There is a better way to go about warring against sin. If the position of the enemy is known and carefully marked, rather than firing at random, a person can strike strategically. He can confess before God with precision, both requesting specific forgiveness for specific sins and requesting specific mercy for specif lic needs.”

“It is this posture – collapsing for mercy at the feet of Jesus – that is our position of strength in the battle against sin.”

“Vanity can never pursue a single aim because the world does not advertise a single good.”

“It is only Christ that can bring deep and enduring satisfaction to our souls. Any voice that suggests otherwise needs to be identified as a puppet of Satan and resisted with the vigilance that Odysseus resisted the Sirens on his journey back to Ithaca.”

“The measure of a sin is never how far it is from the basement of Hell, but how far it is from the ceiling of heaven.”
