I would rather be…

‎”I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been thought about, been born in God’s thought, and then made by God, is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking.” – George McDonald

From Pastor Wilson:

Like Being Waterboarded (09.16.12)
“… God knows our frame, and He knows how to test and grow us in a way that does not truly overwhelm. It is like being waterboarded—you are not drowning, but you can feel like it.”
 
Elms and Olives (09.23.12)
“What is more impressive—a small grape vine, or a stately elm? What is more striking—two rows of grape vines, or two rows of majestic oaks? Well, the trees are more impressive, but the vines are more fruitful.
And compare the great trees with the olive trees. The olive trees are much smaller, and more gnarly-looking. But they are also more fruitful.
God delights in bring fruit out of small vines. He delights in the olive shoots around His table, and it should delight us to gather there in that capacity. That is what we are, and we must not chafe at what we are.”

“If Christians today fail to recognize the Battle of our time – against the socialist welfare-warfare state – and join the right side of that battle, when the battle is over, we will be in no position to have our voice heard. If we just stay on the sidelines today, we will be left on the sidelines in the future.” – Bojidar Marinov in his article “Yes, Christians Should Vote for Ron Paul; or Why Treebeard Is Not a Good Example for Christians”

A Few Quotes

“If it is true that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words,’ than it is also true that ‘a living model is worth a million words.’”

“Our estimate of Christ is the best gauge of our spiritual condition; as the thermometer rises in proportion to the increased warmth of the air, so does our estimate of Jesus rise as our spiritual life increases in vigor and fervency. […] We are growing in grace when we grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let everything else be gone, and let Christ fill up the entire space of our soul, then, and only then, are we rising out of the vanity of the flesh into the real life of God.”

“Great things have been effected by a few men well conducted.”

“The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. 
The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. 
The final weapon is the brain. 
All else is supplemental.”

You’ve been taught right from wrong and given a good education. The person you see there can’t be lied to or manipulated like you can with everyone else. He knows the truth of it.”
