*** We get away with nothing! Beware of the government of God. There is a government of God. Every act in your life and mine has both present and eternal consequences.

*** Never fear persecution; it will make your face shine like an angel's

*** We break bread, if intelligently, not merely as forgiven sinners, but as members of the body of Christ.
*** God intends that we should breath by faith, the atmosphere of heaven before we get there.
*** Death is the principle of Christianity; resurrection is its power.
*** Christian obedience is not law-keeping, but delight in love, giving subjection to the will of another, whether expressed or not.
