the Bellevue Baptist Church
1. Just because it doesnít make sense to you doesnít mean it doesnít make sense.
2. Most people want to serve God, but only in an advisory capacity.
3. If Satan canít make you bad, heíll make you busy.
4. Sin is not just breaking Godís laws; it is breaking His heart.
5. We ought to be living as if Jesus died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back this afternoon.
6. Has it ever occurred to you that nothing occurs to God?
7. Itís what you sow that multiplies, not what you keep in the barn.
8. If you have a Bible thatís falling apart, youíll have a life thatís not.
9. I wouldnít trust the best fifteen minutes I ever lived to get me into heaven.
10. God grades on the Cross not on the curve.
And one of
my favorites that is so very timely and a
MUST Think about !!!
Especially considering what our "new President Obama"
is trying to do to our beloved America !!!
legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What
one person receives without working for, another person must work for without
receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government
does not first take from somebody else.
When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.Ē
don't make Him Lord. He's Lord already. You just recognize it."
"Is what I'm living for worth Christ dying for?"
"Sometimes we don't feel like praying. But if there is ever a time that we need to pray, it's when we don't feel like it. We need to pray until we do feel like it."
"We can do more than pray after we've prayed, but we can do no more than pray until we've prayed."
"If I had a thousand lives to live, I'd give everyone to Jesus."
"He who angers you, controls you!"
"The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us."
"Pray and doubt; you'll do without. Pray and believe; you will receive."
"Don't ask God to cram His plan into your puny little mind, because then God would be limited by your understanding."
"Has it ever occured to you that nothing ever occurs to God?"
"Try to define the Trinity, and you'll lose your mind. Deny it you'll lose your soul."
"Humility is knowing what I am, acknowledging that God made me that way, and giving Him the glory for it."
"If it's big enough to concern you, it's big enough to concern God."
"Meekness is strength under control."
"I am the visible part of the invisible Christ. He is the invisible of the visible me."
"God the Father is all there is
The Holy Spirit is all we will feel
And Jesus is all we will ever see."
"Spiritual hope is not wishful thinking. It's rock-solid assurance!"
"If Christ is worth ANYTHING, He is worth EVERYTHING."
"To understand the part of the Bible you don't understand is to obey the part of you do understand, and before long you'll begin to understand what you didn't understand. Understand?"
"God only wants for us what we would want for ourselves if we were smart enough to want it."
"There is no promise God cannot keep, no prayer God will not answer, and no problem too hard for Him to solve."
"God's plan is to take ordinary people with ordinary talents, do extraordinary things through them, and give the glory to Himself."
"If you have a Bible that's falling apart, you'll have a life that's not."
"Tragically, many of our prayers are so vague that if God were to answer them, we wouldn't even know it."
"Justice is God giving us what we deserve. Mercy is God not giving us what we deserve. Grace is God giving us what we don't deserve."
"The difference between the Anti-Christ and Christ is that one gives you a number and the other gives you name. When Jesus comes, will your name be called, or will your number be up?"
