An attitude of gratefulness is the anecdote to “complaints that God hasn’t blessed me enough”.
“The true despisers of the world are the people who accept what God sends them, gratefully use all things when they have them, and gladly do without them if God takes them away.” – Martin Luther
2. His Work.
“I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God; first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.” – Hudson Taylor
3. Why do ye believe in God?
For heaven, money, greatness, women, to see one’s enemies perish…etc… Or “Just Him, His Love”?
Test it out like this to find out:
“You can tell a person’s faith by what it takes to discourage him.” – Anonymous
4. I’ve never seen it this way.
“Self-righteousness is the subtle killer of all ‘religious’ people. The Pharisees used to say “Lord thank you that I’m not like these publicans.” Today we say “Lord thank you that I’m not like those Pharisees.” Throughout all ages the Lord has demanded one thing: humility.” – Anonymous
“Jesus was either a Liar, a Lunatic, or Lord” – CS Lewis
For me, “He is Lord”.
6. Christ had “no money” (literally).
“The Greatest Man Who ever Lived needed to borrow a penny to illustrate a lesson (Matthew 22:19).” – Anonymous
7. Away with all “denominations” including the “non-denominational denomination”!
“The first thing I ask is that people should not make use of my name, and should not call themselves Lutherans but Christians. What is Luther? The teaching is not mine. Nor was I crucified for anyone…How did I, poor stinking bag of maggots that I am, come to the point where people call the children of Christ by my evil name?” – Martin Luther
8. Life of contentment.
For example, “why are you not married?”
“For what God gives I thank indeed; What He withholds I do not need.” – Martin Luther
