Over my 52 years in the ministry, I have come across 1000’s of quotes and sayings from many, many sources. The next six Weekly SERMON cover letters will contain some of these. I trust they will be a blessing to you. Here are sixteen more of those sayings.

 

Left untreated bitterness poisons us. The secret ingredient for removing bitterness is the love of God, and the effective recipe for that is found in Ephesians 4:32, “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.” If you are struggling with an angry or bitter spirit, pray this verse into your life.

 

Temptation is a negative force, but it can have positive outcomes in our lives when we resist it. When Joseph was tempted by Potiphar’s wife in Genesis 39:8-9 “…he refused, and said unto his master's wife… how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” Make up your mind to defy temptation. God knows how to crush Satan under your feet.

 

Prayer should be the breath of our breathing, the thought of our thinking, the soul of our feeling, the life of our living, the soul of our hearing, and the growth of our growing.

 

Prayerful study of the Bible is indispensable for powerful prayer as the Bible and prayer goes hand in hand.

 

No man’s prayer is acceptable with God whose life is not well-pleasing before God.

 

Every problem in the Christian life is a prayer problem; where we pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.

 

If the matter of praying is important you, what price would you put on it?

 

The Lord wants us to pray because He loves to hear us, because it makes us conscious of our dependence on Him, because it therefore makes our union with Him a greater reality.

 

Never forget that a life of prayer is spiritual warfare. Prayer is a battle, and God wants to bring us to the front lines of the battlefield.

 

The commands of Christ are sharp and clear, but the response of His people is often measured and lifeless which produces apathy.

 

It is the Word of God that gives the heart a passion for souls and brings conviction to the lost.

 

The Bible is the book that comforts and challenges, gives light to our pathway, strengthens us in our hour of weakness, and gives food for the soul and refreshment for the heart.

 

Simplicity is truth’s most becoming garb. He who knows no tempest knows no calm.

 

You can borrow brains, but you cannot borrow character. You express love by obedience.

In His Amazing Grace,

 

 

Pastor David Miklas
