Samuel Rutherford

Duties are ours, events are the Lord’s; when our faith goeth to meddle with events, and to hold a court (if I may so speak) upon God’s Providence, and beginneth to say, “How wilt Thou do this or that?” we lose ground; we have nothing to do there; it is our part to let the Almighty exercise His own office, and steer His own helm; there is nothing left us, but to see how we may be approved of Him, and how we may roll the weight of our weak souls, in well-doing, upon Him who is God omnipotent, and when what we thus essay miscarrieth, it shall neither be our sin nor cross.

Charles Swindoll

You couldn’t if you tried! Salvation is a free gift. You simply lay hold of what Christ has provided. Period. And yet the heretical doctrine of works goes on all around the world and always will. It is effective because the pride of men and women is so strong. We simply have to do something in order to feel right about it. It just doesn’t make good humanistic sense to get something valuable for nothing.

Katherine Walden

Without hope, faith and love, it doesn’t matter what you do for yourself, your fellow man or God, In the end, if your life work was not built upon a foundation built of empowering love, faith and hope, it will all crumble into nothingness. It nothing but chaff blowing in the wind. But if you have these three things in place, nothing you do, no matter how small or seemingly mundane is without significant kingdom value.
