Unless you live in Christ, you are dead to God.
      - Rowland Hill

From behind the shadow of the still small voice--more awful than tempest or earthquake--more sure and persistent than day and night--is always sounding full of hope and strength to the weariest of us all, "Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
      - Thomas Hughes

Sun of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,
  It is not night if Thou be near;
    Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise,
      To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.
      - John Keble

And what is the joy of Christ? The joy and delight which springs forever in His great heart, from feeling that He is forever doing good; from loving all, and living for all; from knowing that if not all, yet millions on millions are grateful to Him and will be forever.
      - Charles Kingsley

The hoary centuries are full of Him; the echoes of His sweet voice are heard to-day; His love has perfumed the past eighteen hundred years, and He lives to-day, as the Head of the Church; He lives to-day, the object of the warmest adoration, the most passionate love, for whom millions would die this very hour. Empires have fallen, thrones have crumbled; but Jesus lives, His empire extending every day, His throne gaining new trophies of His grace.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge

Thus the word reveals the divine essence; His incarnation makes that life, that love, that light, which is eternally resident in God obvious to souls that steadily contemplate Himself. These terms life, love, light--so abstract, so simple, so suggestive--meet in God; but they meet also in Jesus Christ. They do not only make Him the centre of a philosophy; they belong to the mystic language of faith more truly than to the abstract terminology of speculative thought. Whey draw hearts to Jesus; they invest Him with a higher than any intellectual beauty.
      - Canon Henry P. Liddon

Jesus did all the saving-work. He brought the cross to our level. Get saved by looking to Him, and then live to God.
      - William Paton Mackay

Christ puts Himself at the head of the mystic march of the generations; and, like the mysterious angel that Joshua saw in the plain by Jericho, makes the lofty claim, "Nay, but as the captain of the Lord's host am I come up."
      - Alexander Maclaren

Christ's voice sounds now for each of us in loving invitation; and dead in sin and hardness of heart though we be, we can listen and live. Christ Himself, my brother, sows the seed now. Do you take care that it falls not on, but in, your souls.
      - Alexander Maclaren

Grieve not the Christ of God, who redeems us; and remember that we grieve Him most when we will not let Him pour His love upon us, but turn a sullen, unresponsive unbelief towards His pleading grace, as some glacier shuts out the sunshine from the mountainside with its thick-ribbed ice.
      - Alexander Maclaren

In danger Christ lashes us to Himself, as the Alpine guides do when there is perilous ice to get over.
      - Alexander Maclaren

It is not the thinker who is the true king of men, as we sometimes hear it proudly said. We need one who will not only show, but be the Truth; who will not only point, but open and be the way; who will not only communicate thought, but give, because He is the Life. Not the rabbi's pulpit, nor the teacher's desk, still less the gilded chairs of earthly monarchs, least of all the tents of conquerors, are the throne of the true king. He rules from the cross.
      - Alexander Maclaren

He who thinks he hath no need of Christ, hath too high thoughts of himself. He who thinks Christ cannot help him, hath too low thoughts of Christ.
      - John M. Mason

There is truth in Jesus which is terrible, as well as truth that is soothing; terrible, for He shall be Judge as well Saviour; and ye cannot face Him, ye cannot stand before Him, unless ye now give ear to His invitation.
      - Henry Melvill

Christ sends His Spirit, not only to help, but to lead us on, so that we build better than we know. We come freely into His methods; we are made to carry out His plan. This is the guarantee of an eternal success.
      - Matthew Brown Riddle

As this brook not only washes off impurities, but overwhelms them, so that they can no longer be found, even so Thy Divine mercy, and the stream of my Saviour's blood, not only purge away, but extinguish my sins, sweeping them into the depths of the sea, where through all eternity they shall be remembered no more.
      - Christian Scriver (used pseudonym Gotthold)

Christ is the head of all things. Everything lies open before His eye; everything is sustained by His power, and everything is disposed of by His wisdom. Not a sparrow can fall to the ground without His notice and permission. Oh, to see Jesus in all things! Oh, to see everything at the disposal of Jesus! Oh, to see that all things are directed, controlled, and overruled by Christ alone! May this calm my mind, compose my spirit, and produce holy resignation in my soul! If Jesus arranges all, sends all, directs all, overrules all, then all things must work together for good to them that love God.
      - James Smith

On Thee alone my hope relies,
  Beneath Thy cross I fall;
    My Lord! my Life! my Sacrifice!
      My Saviour! and my All!
      - Anne Steele (used pseudonym Theodosia)

And, whereas many who are called by the gospel do not repent nor believe in Christ, but perish in unbelief, this is not owing to any defect or insufficiency in the sacrifice offered by Christ upon the cross, but is wholly imputed to themselves.
      - Synod of Dort,
        Decision of the Synod of Dort
         (Second Head, Article 6)

Go to the family where darkness and suspicion and jealousy and disorder reign, and if they will but receive Christ mark how light and confidence and order and peace spring up. Go to the regions of superstition and idolatry; and see what transformations are effected by Jesus.
      - Edward Thomson

The enthronement of Christ over the minds of men is steadily going forward. His kingdom embraces the princes in the realm of mind. It embraces the nations of highest civilization. They are all beneath the cross. It is maintained by simple authority. Other mental monarchs rule by logic; Christ's word is law--it is satisfying to His subjects. His truth in the hands of His disciples, like the bread He broke upon the mountains, is an ample supply for the millions that gather at His table.
      - Edward Thomson

You may be a dreadful failure. Christ is a divine success. "Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth."
      - Edward Thomson
