How easy it is to stumble…

How easy it is to stumble if you don’t take the precautions long before and draw the lines well ahead of time.

Ravi Zacharias, from the Mirror for the Soul lecture

To trust Him means…

To trust Him means, of course, trying to do all that he says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice.

C. S. Lewis, quoted by Greg Koukl in The Story of Reality,  kindle location 2152

You have the freedom to do anything…

Using the guidelines of God’s word and wisdom, you have the freedom to do anything you want … with God’s blessing.

Greg Koukl, from Decision Making Part Two, Ambassador Basic Curriculum, Course Two

A person’s life is fundamentally serious…

Paul Helm rightly notes that according to Scripture “the whole of a person’s life is fundamentally serious, something for which he is responsible before God, and for which he will have to give an account…. He is individually responsible to God for what he ‘makes’ of it.”

James Emery White, from Serious Times, p. 10

The most important thing in life…

The most important thing in life is not me feeling good all the time. The most important thing in life is the state of my soul before God.

The desire for my true country…

I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of my life to press on to that other country and to help others do the same.

C. S. Lewis, from Mere Christianity, p. 121
