Strings for Your Harp

     Part II. The Christian

        A. Salvation/Faith

          The greatest miracle that God can do today is to take
          an unholy man out of an unholy world and make him
          holy, then put him back into that unholy world and
          keep him holy in it.

          It is nothing to plant a man on the moon compared with
          getting the Son into a man.

          Faith needs no crutches.

          If "Christ liveth in me" then I shall be very careful
          where I take Him.

          It cost Jesus Christ everything to obtain eternal
          redemption for us.
          It will cost us everything to obtain and maintain that

          Faith is either dead earnest or just dead.

          God will not penalize me for Adam's sin.
          God will not penalize Adam for my sin.
          But He will penalize each of us for our own sin.

          God cannot be explained -
          He can be experienced.

          The Holy Spirit cannot be intimidated.
          He came in tongues of Living Flame to teach, convince,

          Our claim on the Lord is from our weakness not from
          our strength,
          from our poverty not from our riches,
          from our ignorance not from our wisdom,
          from our humility not from our superiority.

          God will test the faith He is going to trust.

          If faith were more vigorous it would be more
          victorious. (I John 5:4)

          No vice, however horrendous, will keep us out of
          Heaven if repented of.
          No virtue, however admirable, will get us into Heaven
          without the blood of Christ.

          "Faith" takes the guesswork out of tomorrow. It
          confidently boasts, "My times are in Thy hands."

          An experience with God cannot be shared, it can only
          be described.

          Sinners need cold comfort and hot preaching until they
          come to a place of repentance.

          I would rather be Balaam's ass for God
          than the swiftest horse in Jehu's chariot.

          God grant us perception from Heaven
          to save us from deception on earth.

          God has to work in a man
          before He can work through a man.

          To know about Christ is education.
          To know HIM is emancipation.
