Our 27th year church anniversary was a blast last Sunday. It was by God’s grace successful. The special numbers, the fellowship and most importantly the preaching of the Word was edifying. Not only that, the Lord added 3 new members in His church during the afternoon baptism. Will you keep us in prayer as our church grows and spread the gospel in our community?
Anyways, here’s a book by Jonathan Stephen, Fearless Faith published by 10 of Those Publishing. This book is part of the series of books from Union Theology and with Michael Reeves as senior editor. If you like these quotes, please get yourself a copy of this book by ordering at 10 of Those.
“What we ultimately trust in, where our hope really lies and what we love most of all not only reveal our true selves but also determine the direction of our lives.”
“faith, hope and love as the three huge propellers that drive the church of Jesus (and you as a member of that church) safely through the perilous seas of life.”
“The truth is that fear cannot coexist peacefully alongside faith, hope or love. There is a constant battle between them until one or other takes control.”
“the antidote to great fear is a strong faith in the true Person of Christ.”
” If our lives were always pleasant and never challenging, our faith would scarcely be required and never grow. We would not be much use to the Lord in this life, nor would we be prepared for the life to come.”
“A Christian’s trials and troubles are a normal and necessary part of our training for glory. So let’s be thankful that our times are in the Lord’s hands, and not in our own (Ps. 31:15).”
“Let your experience of God’s goodness in the past feed your faith in his loving purposes for you now. While there is no promise that we shall be delivered from all our trials and troubles, by faith we shall pass safely through them. “
“Ultimately, nothing strengthens the believer’s faith more than a full realisation and understanding of the Saviour’s unique identity.”
