The essence of faith is being satisfied with all that God is for us in Jesus.

Faith is the evidence of new birth, not the cause of it.

    Topics: Faith, Renewal

My take on tithing in America is that it's a middle-class way of robbing God. Tithing to the church and spending the rest on your family is not a Christian goal. It's a diversion. The real issue is: How shall we use God's trust fund - namely, all we have - for His glory? In a world with so much misery, what lifestyle should we call our people to live? What example are we setting?

    Topics: Giving

There will be no people in heaven who want to be around their things more than Jesus.

    Topics: Heaven

Consider Jesus. Know Jesus. Learn what kind of Person it is you say you trust and love and worship. Soak in the shadow of Jesus. Saturate your soul with the ways of Jesus. Watch Him. Listen to Him. Stand in awe of Him. Let Him overwhelm you with the way He is.

    Topics: Jesus, Contentment

The aim of God in creating and redeeming us is the delight He Himself enjoys in seeing His creatures delight in Him. As Edwards said, "[The] glorifying of God is nothing but rejoicing in the manifestations of Him." In other words, the purpose of the knowledge of God is the enjoyment of God because "God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in Him."

    Topics: Joy

When justice is divorced from morality, when rights of individuals are separated from right and wrong, the only definition you have left for justice is the right for every individual to do as he pleases. And the end of that road is anarchy and barbarism.

    Topics: Justice

Trying to work for God without worshipping God results in joyless legalism. Work minus worship magnifies your will power not God's worth. If you try to do things for God without delighting in God you bring dishonor upon God. Serving God without savoring God is lifeless and unreal.

    Topics: Legalism
