However dark our lot may be, there is light enough on the other side of the cloud...

-Horace Bushnell
Horace Bushnell

God made sin possible just as he made all lying wonders possible, but he never made it a fact, never set anything in his plan to harmonize with it. Therefore it enters the world as a forbidden fact against everything that God has ordained.

Horace Bushnell
Live as with God; and, whatever be your calling, pray for the gift that will perfectly qualify you in it.
Horace Bushnell

Christ is redemption only as He actually redeems and delivers our nature from sin. If He is not the law and spring of a new spirit of life, He is nothing. "As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God," as many, no more.

Horace Bushnell
Fashionable dances as now carried on are revolting to every feeling of delicacy and propriety and are fraught with the greatest danger to millions.
Horace Bushnell

Christ commands you to take up His cross and follow Him, not that He may humble you, or lay some penance upon you, but that you may surrender the low self-will and the feeble pride of your sin, and ascend into the sublime patience of heavenly charity.

Horace Bushnell
Not all the winds, and storms, and earthquakes, and seas, and seasons of the world, have done so much to revolutionize the earth as Man, the power of an endless life, has done since the day he came forth upon it, and received dominion over it.
Horace Bushnell

Go to your duty, every man, and trust yourself to Christ; for He will give you all supply just as fast as you need it. You will have just as much power as you believe you can have. Be a Christian; throw yourself upon God's work; and get the ability you want in it.

Horace Bushnell
O, if there be any kind of life most sad, and deepest in the scale of pity, it is the dry, cold impotence of one, who has honestly set to the work of his own self-redemption.
Horace Bushnell

Trust in God for great things. With your five loaves and two fishes He will show you a way to feed thousands.

Horace Bushnell
Christ wants to lead men by their love, their personal love to Him, and the confidence of His personal love to them.
