D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
“To make it quite practical I have a very simple test. After I have explained the way of Christ to somebody I say “Now, are you ready to say that you are a Christian?” And they hesitate. And then I say, “What’s the matter? Why are you hesitating?” And so often people say, “I don’t feel like I’m good enough yet. I don’t think I’m ready to say I’m a Christian now.” And at once I know that I have been wasting my breath. They are still thinking in terms of themselves. They have to do it. It sounds very modest to say, “Well, I don’t think I’ good enough,” but it’s a very denial of the faith. The very essence of the Christian faith is to say that He is good enough and I am in Him. As long as you go on thinking about yourself like that and saying, “I’m not good enough; Oh, I’m not good enough,” you are denying God – you are denying the gospel – you are denying the very essence of the faith and you will never be happy. You think you’re better at times and then again you will find you are not as good at other times than you thought you were. You will be up and down forever. How can I put it plainly? It doesn’t matter if you have almost entered into the depths of hell. It does not matter if you are guilty of murder as well as every other vile sin. It does not matter from the standpoint of being justified before God at all. You are no more hopeless than the most moral and respectable person in the world.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cure

Charles R. Swindoll
“God never asked us to meet life's pressures and demands on our own terms or by relying upon our own strength. Nor did He demands that we win His favor by assembling an impressive portfolio of good deeds. Instead, He invites us to enter His rest.”
Charles R. Swindoll

Andrew Murray
“The Lord gave the wonderful promise of the free use of His Name with the Father in conjunction with doing His works. The disciple who lives only for Jesus' work and Kingdom, for His will and honor, will be given the power to appropriate the promise. Anyone grasping the promise only when he wants something very special for himself will be disappointed, because he is making Jesus the servant of his own comfort. But whoever wants to pray the effective prayer of faith because he needs it for the work of the Master will learn it, because he has made himself the servant of his Lord's interests.”
Andrew Murray, With Christ in the School of Prayer

Dejan Stojanovic
“We love the imperfect shapes in nature and in the works of art, look for an intentional error as a sign of the golden key and sincerity found in true mastery.”
Dejan Stojanovic

Jerry Bridges
“Our duty is found in the revealed will of God in the Scriptures. Our trust must be in the sovereign will of God as He works in the ordinary circumstances of our daily lives for our good and His glory.”
Jerry Bridges, Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts

John H. Gerstner
“The main thing between you and God is not so much your sins; it's your damnable good works. ”
John H. Gerstner

Charles R. Swindoll
“To be "in Christ" is to place one's trust in Him for salvation from sin. To be "in Christ" is to trust His goodness, not our own; to trust that His sacrificial death on the cross paid the complete debt of death we owe for our sin; to trust that His resurrection gives us eternal life instead of relying upon our own ability to please God. To be "in Christ" is to claim, by faith, the free gift of salvation. To be "in Christ" is to enjoy a completely restored relationship with our Father in heaven by virtue of His Son's righteous standing.”
Charles R. Swindoll

Charles R. Swindoll
“Good intentions and earnest effort are not enough. Only Jesus can make an otherwise futile life productive.”
Charles R. Swindoll

“In science, work (W) is done when force (F) move a body through a distance (D). It is the same with our every day affairs. When you don't progress, no work is done irrespective of the force (power) you have”
Israelmore Ayivor

Hermann Hesse
“Gemeinsam aber ist allen Menschen, die des guten Willens sind, dieses: daß unsere Werke uns am Ende beschämen, daß wir immer wieder von vorn beginnen müssen, daß das Opfer immer neu gebracht werden muß.”
Hermann Hesse, Narcissus and Goldmund

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“That eye which sees anything good in the creature is a blind eye; that eye which fancies it can discern anything in man, or anything in anything he can do to win the Divine favor, is as yet stone blind to the Truth of God, and needs to be lanced and cut, and the cataract of pride removed from it!”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Martin Luther
“To an unbelieving person nothing renders service or work for good. He himself is in servitude to all things, and all things turned out for evil to him, because he uses all things in impious way for his own advantage, and not for the glory of God.”
Martin Luther, On Christian Liberty

“If you don't have a rainbow to give.
Give a smile. It works just the same.”
Anthony T. Hincks

Israelmore Ayivor
“Our work is directly proportional to the distances our dreams travel across, as force (power) is a constant factor”
Israelmore Ayivor

Martin Luther
“Being by his faith replaced afresh in paradise and created anew, he (the believer)does not need works for his justification, but that he may not be idle, but that he may exercise his own body and preserve it. His works are to be done freely, with the sole object of pleasing God.”
Martin Luther, On Christian Liberty

“The Good News does not hinge on words like do or change but on the powerless, irrelevant, and frightening words like belief and faith.”
Mark Galli, Chaos and Grace: Discovering the Liberating Work of the Holy Spirit

Gordon B. Hinckley
“We too must work. Nothing happens in this world until there is work. You never plow a field by turning it over in your mind. You have to put your hands to the handles of the plow and walk forward. It is easier now, but the principle is the same. There must be work, and what a great and wonderful blessing that is.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

Haruki Murakami
“Works that have a certain imperfection to them have an appeal for that very reason –or at least they appeal to certain types of people.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“Prayers profit very greatly: but it is when we also do something. For Prayers indeed cooperate & assist, but a man 'acts with' one that is acting, and 'assists' one that is himself also working. But if thou remainest idle, though wilt receive no great benefit. -- Chrysostom”
Chrysostom, The Homilies of S. John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople, on the Statues, or to the People of Antioch
