2 Timothy 3:12
 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

Matthew 10:35-36

James 4:4
You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

 1 John 2:15-16
 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

John 15:18-20
 "If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before [it hated] you.
 "If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A slave is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also.

John 16:33
"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."

Sermon #703
Salvation Altogether By Grace
Delivered On Sunday Morning, July 29, 1866,
By C. H. Spurgeon,
At The Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington.

“Who Has Saved Us, And Called Us With A Holy Calling, Not According To Our Works, But According To His Own Purpose And Grace Which Was Given To Us In Christ Jesus Before The World Began.” 2 Timothy 1:9.
Bible Discussion / HOLINESS
« Last post by Bob on April 01, 2019, 12:41:06 AM »

  Holy has the same root as wholly, it means complete. A man is not complete in spiritual stature if all his mind, heart, soul, and strength are not given to God.
R. J. Stewart

     A holy life is a voice; it speaks when the tongue is silent and is either a constant attraction or a perpetual reproof.
Archbishop Robert Leighton (1611–1684)

     A holy life is not an ascetic, or gloomy, or solitary life, but a life regulated by divine truth and faithful in Christian duty. It is living above the world while we are still in it.
Tryon Edwards (1809–1894)

    A holy life will produce the deepest impression. Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.
Dwight Lyman Moody (1837–1899)

   Although we become Christians instantaneously by faith in Christ, knowing God and developing faith is a gradual process. There are no shortcuts to maturity. It takes time to be holy.
Erwin W. Lutzer (1941– )

      Holiness has love for its essence, humility for its clothing, the good of others as its employment, and the honor of God as its end.
Nathanael Emmons (1745–1840)

     Holiness in a human being is only manifested by antagonism.
Oswald Chambers (1874–1917)

     Holiness is a fire whose outgoing warmth pervades the universe.
Plotinus (205–270)

     Holiness is inwrought by the Holy Spirit, not because we have suffered, but because we have surrendered.
Richard Shelley Taylor

     Holiness is not exemption from conflict, but victory through conflict.
G. Campbell Morgan (1863–1945)

     Holiness is not freedom from temptation, but power to overcome temptation.
G. Campbell Morgan (1863–1945)

      Holiness is not inability to sin, but ability not to sin.
G. Campbell Morgan (1863–1945)

     Holiness is not the end of progress, but deliverance from standing still.
G. Campbell Morgan (1863–1945)

      Holiness is the symmetry of the soul.
Philip Henry (1631–1696)

      Holiness means something more than the sweeping away of the old leaves of sin; it means the life of Jesus developed in us.
I. Lilias Trotter

      Holy is the way God is. To be holy he does not conform to a standard. He is that standard. He is absolutely holy with an infinite, incomprehensible fullness of purity that is incapable of being other than it is. Because he is holy, all his attributes are holy; that is, whatever we think of as belonging to God must be thought of as holy.
A. W. Tozer (1897–1963)

      How little people know who think that holiness is dull. When one meets the real thing . . . it is irresistible. If even 10 percent of the world’s population had it, would not the whole world be converted and happy before a year’s end?
C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

      If only ten among us be righteous, the ten will become twenty, the twenty fifty, the fifty a hundred, the hundred a thousand, and the thousand will become the entire city. As when ten lamps are kindled, a whole house may easily be filled with light; so it is with the progress of spiritual things. If but ten among us lead a holy life, we shall kindle a fire which shall light up the entire city.
Saint John Chrysostom (c. 347–407)

      It is quite true to say, “I can’t live a holy life,” but you can decide to let Jesus make you holy.
Oswald Chambers (1874–1917)

      It is time for us Christians, to face up to our responsibility for holiness. Too often we say we are “defeated” by this or that sin. No, we are not defeated; we are simply disobedient. It might be well if we stopped using the terms victory and defeat to describe our progress in holiness. Rather we should use the terms obedience and disobedience.
Jerry Bridges

     Our progress in holiness depends on God and ourselves—on God’s grace and on our will to be holy.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910– )

     Saying yes to God means saying no to things that offend his holiness.
A. Morgan Derham

     Spring cleaning should begin with the head and end with the heart.
      The destined end of man is not happiness, nor health, but holiness. God’s one aim is the production of saints. He is not an eternal blessing machine for men; he did not come to save men out of pity; he came to save men because he had created them to be holy.
Oswald Chambers (1874–1917)

     The essence of true holiness is conformity to the nature and will of God.
Samuel Lucas (1818–1868)

      The greatest miracle that God can do today is to take an unholy man out of an unholy world, and make that man holy and put him back into that unholy world and keep him holy in it.
Leonard Ravenhill (1867–1942)

      The holier a man is, the less he is understood by men of the world.
Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801–1890)

     The holiest person is . . . one who is most conscious of what sin is.
Oswald Chambers (1874–1917)

      The holy man is not one who cannot sin. A holy man is one who will not sin.
A. W. Tozer (1897–1963)

      The holy man is the most humble man you can meet.
Oswald Chambers (1874–1917)

      The inward stirring and touching of God makes us hungry and yearning; for the Spirit of God hunts our spirit, and the more it touches it, the greater our hunger and our craving.
Jan Van Ruysbroeck (1293–1381)

      The old word for holy in the German language, heilig, also means healthy. And so heilbronn means holy-well, or healthy-well. You could not get any better definition of what holy really is than healthy—completely healthy.
Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

      The serene, silent beauty of a holy life is the most powerful influence in the world, next to the might of the Spirit of God.
Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

     The true Christian ideal is not to be happy but to be holy.
A. W. Tozer (1897–1963)

      There is no detour to holiness. Jesus came to the resurrection through the cross, not around it.
Leighton Ford

      Things that are holy are revealed only to men who are holy.
Hippocrates (c. 460–c. 377 b.c.)

     When God purifies the heart by faith, the market is sacred as well as the sanctuary.
Martin Luther (1483–1546)

      When godliness is produced in you from the life that is deep within you—then that godliness is real, lasting and the genuine essence of the Lord.
Madame Jeanne Marie de La Mothe Guyon (1648–1717)

Bible Discussion / WHO IS THIS MAN JESUS?
« Last post by Fat on March 14, 2019, 12:18:44 AM »

There is one God, and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Tim. 2:5 )   and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than [the blood] of Abel.
 (Hebrews 12:24)
 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23)
Forasmuch … as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same. (Heb. 2:14 )
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (Isa. 45:22 )   For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)
We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. (1 John 2:1 ) In Christ Jesus, ye who sometime were far off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace. (Eph. 2:13, 14 ) By his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. (Heb. 9:12, 15 ) He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (Heb. 7:25 )
  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. (Philippians 2:6-8)

March 6

He preserveth the way of his saints. (Prov. 2:8 )
The Lord your God … went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day. (Deut. 1:32 , 33 ) As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: so the Lord alone did lead him. (Deut. 32:11 , 12 ) The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. (Psa. 37:23 , 24 ) Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. (Psa. 34:19 ) For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Psa. 1:6 ) We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Rom. 8:28 ) With us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. (2 Chr. 32:8 )
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy. (Zeph. 3:17 )
