"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."-John 17:3, NIV
"Even the good things in our life can become idols."
Leslie Ludy - Three Questions
Is Christ enough? Until He is your portion, no portion will ever be adequate. Until He is your desire, your desires will never be quenched. Until He is your satisfaction, you will never find satisfaction. Until He is your hope, hope will be elusive. Until God is enough, you will never have enough. Good news: Christ is enough!
― Joshua Harris
"If Jesus has your heart, He will have your will. If He has your heart, He will have your emotions, your affections, your intellect. And if He doesn’t have any impact upon your hands, your feet, and eyes and your ears, what you do with your body, then you are deceiving yourself when you say, “Jesus has my heart” because He most certainly does not."-Paul Washer (via set-apartgirl)
"Dearest Daughter. I knew you would not be long in coming to me. Joy shall be yours."-C.S. Lewis (The Horse and His Boy)
"Before the sin, Satan assures us that it is of no consequence; after the sin, he persuades us that it is unforgivable."-Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (via breanna-lynn)
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. [John 10:27-29, ESV]
"…no one will snatch them out of my hand…no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand…"
Isn’t it too overwhelming that Jesus said it twice? Isn’t it powerful and humbling and amazing??
