"NO MAN LIVING IN ANY KNOWN SIN IS EVER COMFORTED OF GOD. The Holy Ghost never yet spoke one word of all His abounding consolations to any man so long as he lived in any actual sin, or in any neglect of known duty." ~ Alexander Whyte
THESE DAYS IT HAS BECOME POLITICALLY INCORRECT TO CALL SIN - SIN. What they don't understand is that what is at stake here is our eternal destination - heaven or hell: "One great power of sin is that it blinds men so that they do not recognize its true character." ~ Andrew Murray
CHRIST'S RESURRECTION: "We are ADOPTED into GOD'S FAMILY through the resurrection of Christ from the dead in which he paid all our obligations to sin, the law, and the devil, in whose family we once lived. Our old status lies in his tomb. A new status is ours through his resurrection." ~ Sinclair B. Ferguson
Philippians 1:9 I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. 10 For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. 11 May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.
"Justification is away beyond anything that a human court of justice ever realizes. It is putting the sinner in the CONDITION BEFORE GOD AS IF HE HAD NEVER SINNED AT ALL. It is giving him a standing in the merit of Jesus Christ of absolute innocence before God." ~ A.C. Dixon

JESUS DYING FOR OUR SINS WAS ALL ABOUT LOVE FOR US: "Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair," G.K. Chesterton. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life," John 3:16.
CHRISTIANS ARE A BLESSED PEOPLE - IF ONLY WE FULLY SURRENDER OUR LIVES TO CHRIST: "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you," James 4:8. "Behold, I will do something new... I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert," Isaiah 43:19.
"THE JOY OF CHRIST and THE JOY OF THE WORLD CANNOT CONSIST TOGETHER. A heart delighted with worldly joy cannot feel the consolations of the Spirit; the one of these destroys the other: but in sanctified trouble, the comforts of God's Word are felt and perceived in a most sensible manner." ~ Abraham Wright
