Good morning friends and Happy Thanksgiving,

Here is a random quote (of over 2100) from Nuggets:

O LORD OF GRACE… All thy lovingkindness is in thy Son, I bring him to thee in the arms of faith, I urge his saving Name as the One who died for me. I plead his blood to pay my debts of wrong. Accept his worthiness for my unworthiness, his sinlessness for my transgressions, his purity for my uncleanness, his sincerity for my guile, his truth for my deceits, his meekness for my pride, his constancy for my backslidings, his love for my enmity, his fullness for my emptiness, his faithfulness for my treachery, his obedience for my lawlessness, his glory for my shame, his devotedness for my waywardness, his holy life for my unchaste ways, his righteousness for my dead works, his death for my life. – Valley of Vision

It wasn’t like the 55-year-old leader of the Evangelical Church Winning All to be late. As the hour grew later, people in the congregation left to search — each one praying that his disappearance wasn’t what they all feared. In Nigeria, they knew, being a Christian or going to church could be a death sentence — one that had been carried out thousands of times this year already.: https://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WA21K42&f=WU21K12

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. Hebrews 12:28

Blessings to you all

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2100) from Nuggets:

Willing to appear openly to those who seek him with all their heart, and to be hidden from those who flee from him with all their heart, God so regulates the knowledge of himself that he has given indications of himself, which are visible to those who seek him and not to those who do not seek him. There is enough light for those to see who only desire to see, and enough obscurity for those who have a contrary disposition. – Blaise Pascal

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2100) from Nuggets:

He (Jesus) was a willing Sufferer in order to procure redemption for a lost and ruined soul. He had undertaken to give His own life as a ransom, that we might live forever, and He laid it down on the cross with all the desire of His heart. He did not bleed and suffer and die because He was vanquished by superior force, and could not help Himself, but because He loved us, and rejoiced to give Himself for us as our Substitute. – J.C. Ryle

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2100) from Nuggets:

Sinners need pardon—and they are utterly unable to provide it for themselves; they need deliverance from a guilty conscience and the fear of death—and they have no power of their own to obtain it. This need, the Lord Jesus Christ came into the world to relieve. “He came into the world to save sinners!” – J.C. Ryle
