echoes of thought in love with God through Christ crucified

Category: Quotes (page 2 of 68)

Wherever we find the word of God purely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ; there, it is not to be doubted, is a Church of God.

— John Calvin
Institutes, III.iii.18.

It is important to bear in mind that the church … may never be conceived of apart from the organization of the people of God in visible expression and in discharge of the ordinances instituted by Christ.

—John Murray
Collected Writings of John Murray, 1:236.

Many low and carnal considerations may work men to watch their words, their lives, their actions; as hope of gain, or to please friends, or to get a name in the world, and many other such like considerations. Oh! but to watch our thoughts, to weep and lament over them, etc., this must needs be from some noble, spiritual, and internal principle, as love to God, a holy fear of God, a holy care and delight to please the Lord.

—Charles H. Spurgeon

Cor meum tibi offero, Domine, prompte et sincere.

“My heart I offer to you, O Lord, promptly and sincerely”

“I offer my heart to you, O Lord, eagerly and earnestly”

Day by day, dear Lord,
of Thee three things I pray:
to see Thee more clearly,
to love Thee more dearly,
to follow Thee more nearly.

—Prayer of Richard of Chichester (1197-1253)
