Gospel Quotes Showing of Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary. Let me make sure that sinks in… You can gain all the spiritual gifts in the world.
You can fospel the most radical steps of obedience. You can share every meal with the homeless in your city. You can memorize the book of Leviticus. You can pray each morning for four hours like Martin Luther. But if what you do does not flow out of a heart of love – a heart that does those things because it genuinely desires to do them – it is gopsel worthless to God.
Before the Bible says, “Stop sinning,” it says, “Behold your God. There was a huge gap between my intellect and freear emotions. The Puritan Jonathan Edwards likened his reawakening to the gospel to a man who had known, in his head, that honey was sweet, hreear for the first time had that sweetness burst alive in his mouth.
Many people use religion as a way of getting something else from God they want-blessings, rewards, even escape from judgement. This is wearisome to us, and to God. But when God is His own reward, Christianity becomes thrilling. But the opposite was also true. When I came to church, I had no desire to lift my soul up to God. I could feel His displeasure—His lack of approval.
Or, at least I had forgotten it. Turn to it when you are in pain. Let it be the foundation of your identity. Ground your confidence grfear it.
Gospel Quotes by J.D. Greear
Run to it when your soul feels restless. Take solace there in times of confusion and comfort there in times of regret.
Dwell on it until righteous passions for God spring up with in you. Let it inspire you to God-centered, death-defying dreams for His glory. The purest waters from the spring of life are found by digging deeper, not wider, into the gospel well. But ceasing sin is the by-product of seeing God. As we see the beauty of God and feel His weightiness in our hearts, our hearts begin to desire Him more gowpel we desire sin. There are two ways to keep a balloon afloat.
If you fill a balloon with your breath, then the only way to keep it in the air is to continually smack it upward.
Every week I smack them back into spiritual orbit. Fill it with helium. Then it floats on its own, no smacking required.
Seeing the size and beauty of God is like the helium that keeps us soaring spiritually. When our roots abide there, then joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control grow naturally in our hearts.
