Put thou thy trust in God;In duty's path go on;Fix on His word thy steadfast eye;So shall thy work be done.
Spare the rod and spoil the child - that is true. But, beside the rod, keep an apple to give him when he has done well.
A religion that gives nothing, costs nothing, and suffers nothing, is worth nothing.
The best way to get rid of the Devil, if you cannot kill it with the words of Holy Scripture, is to rail at and mock him. Music, too, is very good; music is hateful to him, and drives him far away.
We do not become righteous by doing righteous deed but, having been made righteous, we do righteous deeds.
Religion is not 'doctrinal knowledge,' but wisdom born of personal experience.
Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness.
A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law.
The cross alone is our theology.
Be thou comforted, little dog, Thou too in Resurrection shall have a little golden tail. Martin Luthe
I have to hurry all day to get time to pray.
True Christian love is not derived from things without, but floweth from the heart, as from a spring.
The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious.
Prayer is a powerful thing; for God has bound and tied himself thereunto.
There is no wisdom save in truth.
I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess.
Peter erred in life and in doctrine. Paul might have dismissed Peter's error as a matter of no consequence. But Paul saw that Peter's error would lead to the damage of the whole Church unless it were corrected. Therefore he withstood Peter to his face. The Church, Peter, the apostles, angels from he
Great God, what do I see and hear!The end of things created!The judge of mankind doth appearOn clouds of glory seated!The trumpet sounds; the graves restore,The dead which they contained before;Prepare, my soul, to meet Him!
Many demons are in woods, in waters, in wildernesses, and in dark poolly places ready to hurt and prejudice people; some are also in the thick black clouds, which cause hail, lightning and thunder, and poison the air, the pastures and grounds.
God created the world out of nothing, and so long as we are nothing, He can make something out of us.
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.
Be thou comforted, little dog, Thou too in Resurrection shall have a little golden tail.
Thus every matter, if it is to be done well, calls for the attention of the whole person.
Nothing on earth is so well-suited to make the sad merry, the merry sad, to give courage to the despairing, to make the proud humble, to lessen envy and hate, as music.
Each betrayal begins with trust.
Next to theology I give to music the highest place and honor. And we see how David and all the saints have wrought their godly thoughts into verse, rhyme, and song.
Men are so delving into the mysteries of things that today a boy of twenty knows more than twenty doctors formerly knew.
If you want to interpret well and confidently, set Christ before you, for He is the man to whom it all applies, every bit of it.
