LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

Interesting Thoughts

"Give me the love that leads the way, The faith that nothing can dismay, The hope no disappointments tire, The passion that will burn like fire, Let me not sink to be a clod: Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God."
-Amy Carmichael

"Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us."
-Abraham Lincoln

"No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar."
-Abraham Lincoln

"Since much wealth too often proves a snare and an incumbrance in the Christian's race, let him lighten the weight by 'dispersing abroad and giving to the poor'; whereby he will both soften the pilgrimage of his fellow travelers, and speed his own way the faster."
-Augustus Toplady

"There is an essential difference between the decease of the godly and the death of the ungodly. Death comes to the ungodly man as a penal infliction, but to the righteous as a summons to his Father's palace. To the sinner it is an execution, to the saint an undressing from his sins and infirmities. Death to the wicked is the King of terrors. Death to the saint is the end of terrors, the commencement of glory."
-Charles Spurgeon

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible!"
-George Washington

"Education is useless without the Bible. The Bible was America’s basic text book in all fields. God’s Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct."
-Noah Webster

"If thou wouldst rule well, thou must rule for God, and to do that, thou must be ruled by him. Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants."
-William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania

"If sound doctrine is given up, the real Gospel of redemption by the blood of the Son of God is denied, worldliness follows."
-A.C. Gaebelein

"Dr. Bonar once said that he could tell when a Christian was growing. In proportion to his growth in grace he would elevate his Master, talk less of what he himself was doing, and become smaller and smaller in his own esteem, until, like the morning star, he faded away before the rising sun."
-D.L. Moody

"Someday, when in the presence of our Savior, we will thank Him for every burden, every trial, and every heartache."
-J. Vernon McGee

"Today, when people say they cannot believe, it is not a mental problem; it is
a matter of the will of the heart—they do not want to believe. Some say they have certain “mental reservations,” mental hurdles which they cannot get over. My friend, your mind is not big enough to take even one little hurdle. The problem is never in the mind but in the will. There is sin in the life, and
a man does not want to turn to God; he does not want to believe Him."
-J. Vernon McGee

"The scriptures are the only external guide in matters of religion; they are the way-posts we should look up unto, and take our direction from, and should steer our course accordingly: To the law and to the testimony: if men speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (Isa. 8:20)"
-John Gill

"No power of earth, or hell, men or devils, can possibly stand against the word of God; and hence it is the very height of folly and wild madness for any one to set up his thoughts or reasonings in opposition to the plain statements of Holy Scripture; and, on the other hand, it is the beginning and end of all true wisdom to submit in all things to the absolute authority of that Word which is settled forever in Heaven."
-CH Mackintosh

Excellent posts full of meat and meaning. Interesting that most were quotes from men long gone. Just shows you how shallow we are today. Virtually nothing worth quoting. In fact we are better off forgetting those of today than quoting them.

Another good quote from someone only recently gone is:
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
