Crumbs – A Lofty Thought

                                                                                            

“No doubt all history in the last resort must be held by Christians to be a story with a divine plot.”  C.S. Lewis

   “For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption , the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14

“The doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven, which was the main teaching of Jesus, is certainly one of the most revolutionary doctrines that ever stirred and changed human thought.”  H. G. Wells

                                                                                                                                       

“The person who does not seek the kingdom first does not seek it at all, regardless of how worthy the idolatry that he or she has substituted for it.”   Richard J. Foster

                                                                                     
“When I say ‘hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come,’ I should be adding in my mind the words ‘in and through me,’ and so giving myself to God afresh to be, so far as I can be, the means of answering my own prayer . . . .  J.I. Packer

                                                                                                                           

                 “When a man is all wrapped up in himself he makes a pretty small package.”  John Ruskin 

“He cannot bless us unless He has us. When we try to keep within us an area that is our own, we try to keep an area of death. Therefore, in love, He claims all. There’s no bargaining with Him.”  C. S. Lewis

                                                                                                          

 

 

“The amount of time we spend with Jesus – meditating on His Word and His majesty, seeking His face – establishes our fruitfulness in the kingdom.”  Charles Stanley

                                                                                           

This is the mystery of the riches of divine grace for sinners; for by a wonderful exchange our sins are now not ours but Christ’s, and Christ’s righteousness is not Christ’s but ours.”  Martin Luther

                                                                                                                                                                        

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  Hebrews 12:2

                                                      

                                      “Your throne, O God, will last forever; a scepter of justice with be the scepter of your kingdom.”
