“Puffery in doctrine leads to its dishonor.” —Charles Spurgeon

“In love’s service, only the wounded soldiers can serve.” —Dr. James Stewart

“Don’t bother about the idea that God ‘has known for millions of years exactly what you are about to pray.’ That isn’t what it’s like. God is hearing you now, just as simply as a mother hears a child. The difference His timelessness makes is that this now (which slips away from you even as you say the word now) is for Him infinite. If you must think of His timelessness at all, don’t think of Him having looked forward to this moment for millions of years: think that to Him you are always praying this prayer. But there’s really no need to bring it in. You have gone into the Temple (‘one day in Thy court is better than a thousand’) and found Him, as always, there. That is all you need to bother about.” ―C.S. Lewis

“The itch of self-regard craves the scratch of self-approval. That is, if we are getting our pleasure from feeling self-sufficient, we will not be satisfied without others seeing and applauding our self-sufficiency.” —John Piper

A Byzantine Benediction

Christus Ravenna MosaicA prayer for all of us…

Go now with God.
Be not tempted to stay in the safety of known places.
Move from where you are to where God points.
Go now with God.
Be not tempted to go only in your time, when it suits, when it is sure,
For now is God’s time.
Go now with God.
Choose not to go alone.
Go in faith that there is no wilderness so vast,
No way so confused,
That God is not already there to show you the way. ―Byzantine Benediction
