Sermon Quotes: "Anything & Everything"

“Perhaps no single problem plagues people more than worry or anxiety. It may arise suddenly. It may accompany you daily. It saps your sleep, drains your joy, exhausts your energy, ruins your relationships, and aggravates your body ailments. For some people, worry is chronic and crippling. For all of us, worry is one of the most typical, everyday sins.” ROBERT D. JONES (JBC Spring 1999)

“Will God not graciously give us all things? In response, we might well have demurred and given an equivocal answer. For we need many things, some of which are difficult and demanding. How then can we possibly be sure that God will supply all our needs? But the way Paul phrases his question banishes these doubts. For he points us to the cross. The God concerning whom we are asking our question whether or not He will give us all things is the God who has already given us his Son…In giving his Son he gave everything. The cross is the guarantee of the continuing, unfailing generosity of God.” JOHN STOTT (Romans, 255)

 “The worldling blesses God while he gives him plenty, but the Christian blesses him when he smites him: he believes him to be too wise to err and too good to be unkind; he trusts him where he cannot trace him, looks up to him in the darkest hour, and believes that all is well.” CHARLES SPURGEON (his sermon “A Happy Christian)
