---

Paul saw people sinking toward hell and did not talk of refining them, but of saving them from the wrath to come. He laid aside his preferences to prevent prejudice; He submitted his will in things indifferent, and if humankind would but recieve the Gospel, he raised no questions about forms or ceremonies. Are we possessed with the same all-absorbing desire? [b]Jesus died for sinners, can't we live for them?[/b]
-C.H. Spurgeon

 Re: Great Quotes 2

God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His gospel out in the world. God is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God.
H.A. Ironside

 Re:

"When Christ as a symbolic moment was establishing His great society, He chose for its corner-stone neither the brilliant Paul nor the mystic John, but a shuffler, a snob, a coward--in a word, a man. And upon this rock He has built His Church, and the gates of Hell have not prevailed against it. All the empires and the kingdoms have failed, because of this inherent and continual weakness, that they were founded by strong men and upon strong men. But this one thing, the historic Christian Church, was founded on a weak man, and for that reason it is indestructible."

~G.K. Chesterton~

 Re: quotes

Love that Chesterton quote!

"Being broken is both God's work and ours. He brings His pressure to bear, but we have to make the choice...All day long the choice will be before us in a thousand ways." -Roy Hession

Great quote Chanin! I love Roy Hession, his book 'calvary road' is a classic. I am actually getting 5 or so tapes of his sermons and am looking forward to getting them up at SI :-)

Beware brethren. Chesterton was a catholic and held the heresy that Peter was the church's foundation. He has NOT built His church upon 'a man' of any kind.

True, but I liked the ambiguousness of the quote, that it is built using weak men.

I have no problems with 'built with', my issue is with 'built on'.

 Re: puritan prayer

Lord, High and Holy, meek and lowly,
Thou hast brought me to the valley of vision,
where I live in the depths but see thee in the heights;
hemmed in by mountains of sin I behold thy glory.

Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
that to give is to receive,
that the valley is the place of vision.

Lord, in the daytime stars can be seen from deepest wells,
and the deeper the wells the brighter thy stars shine;
Let me find thy light in my darkness,
thy life in my death,
they joy in my sorrow,
thy grace in my sin,
thy riches in my poverty,
thy glory in my valley.

-The Valley of Vision (a collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions)

Greg, you said LONG or short. :)
