Living By Grace

"As Christians . . . in our everyday relationship with God, most of us are no different in our thinking than the unbelievers who think they will go to heaven because they've been good enough.  To live by grace, we must rid ourselves of such thinking."  ~ Jerry Bridges, The Discipline of Grace

Refined & Respectable Sins

"One of our problems with these so-called refined sins is that we have become too comfortable with the whole concept of sin.  Because we do sin so frequently we learn to coexist with it as long as it doesn't get too out of control or scandalous.  We forget, or perhaps have never learned, how seriously God regards all sin."  ~ Jerry Bridges, The Discipline of Grace

Life Is A Gift

"Life is gift, not gain.  Give up your pursuit of profit from your toil and instead seek to enjoy the hings that God has given you for what they are, and as you do that, you will know some reward." ~ Living Life Backward, David Gibson
