    "The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven't yet come to the end of themselves. We're still trying to give orders, and interfering with God's work within us." ~A. W. Tozer

    "If hell were put into His cup; He seized it, and in one tremendous draught of love, He drank damnation dry." ~ Charles Spurgeon

    "I think it well to turn a little to one side that I may ask to observe adoringly the fountain-head of our salvation, which is the grace of God. Because God is gracious, therefore sinful men are forgiven, converted, purified, and saved. It is not because of anything in them, or that ever can be in them, that they are saved; but because of the boundless love, goodness, pity, compassion, mercy, and grace of God. Tarry a moment, then, at the well-head. Behold the pure river of water of life, as it proceeds out of the throne of God and of the Lamb!" ~ Charles Spurgeon

    "The death of Jesus was the opening and the emptying of the full heart of God; it was the out-gushing of that ocean of infinite mercy that heaved and panted and longed for an outlet; it was God showing how he could love a poor, guilty sinner." ~ Octavius Winslow

    "God did not come to make bad men good but to make dead men alive." ~Leonard Ravenhill

    "As long as we are seeking our worth in anything and everything but the gospel of God's grace, we will keep seeking and keep wearing ourselves out in the process. But in Christ's finished work is ultimate and eternal validation & ultimate and eternal rest." ~Tullian Tchividjian

    "Martin Luther said that one of our biggest problems was our own good works. They obscure our need for a Savior. At the cross, said Gerhard Forde, God has stormed the last bastion of the self, the last presumption that you were really going to do something for him. Genuine freedom awaits all who stop trusting in their own work and start trusting in Christ's work." ~Tullian Tchividjian

    “In God’s eyes, our problem is not sin, it is trust. Jesus settled our sin problem once and for all at Calvary. He does not constantly harp on us now, barking, ‘What have you done this time?’ or ‘Now you’ve gone too far,’ or ‘This time you’ve crossed the line.’ No, never! Our Lord’s attitude toward us is just the opposite. His Spirit is constantly wooing us, reminding us of the Father’s lovingkindness—even in the midst of failure.” ~Craig T. Owens

    "Look unto Me and be saved is not a suggestion by our heavenly Father, but the road of His recovery process in our life and all mankind." ~D.E. Johnson

    "Get into the habit of dealing with God about everything. Unless in the first waking moment of the day you learn to fling the door wide back and let God in, you will work on a wrong level all day; but swing the door wide open and pray to your Father in secret, and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God." ~Oswald Chambers

    "Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change." ~Richard Rohr

    "The old covenant says, 'keep the law and live', the new covenant is, 'you shall live, and I will lead you to keep my law, for I will write it in your heart." ~Chas. Spurgeon
