Sabbath Keeping


"Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path."

"When you fear God, you fear nothing else." 
"I am a Bible-bigot.
I follow it in all things, both great and small."
"The secret of my success? It is simple. It is found in the Bible, "In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths." ~ George Washington Carver ~
"The Bible is the Constitution of Christianity."
"Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face." ~ Ronald Reagan ~
"The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly." ~ Soren Kierkegaard ~
"Sin will keep you from this Book.
This Book will keep you from sin."
"There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His word spiritual strength for labour in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. ... Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God's Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hands upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord. ..." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon ~
"God brings men into deep waters not to drown them,
but to cleanse them."
"So great is my veneration for the Bible, that the earlier my children begin to read it, the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens to their country and respectable members of society." ~ John Quincy Adams ~
"We are, 
because 
God is."
"No lawyer can afford to be ignorant of the Bible." ~ Rufus Choate ~
"Other books were given for our information,
the Bible was given for our transformation."
~ unknown ~
"The Scriptures teach us the best way of living,
the noblest way of suffering,
and the most comfortable way of dying."
"It is necessary for the welfare of the nation that men's lives be based on the principles of the Bible. No man, educated or uneducated, can afford to be ignorant of the Bible." ~ Theodore Roosevelt ~
"Faith is not a sense, not a sight, not reason, but taking God at his Word."
~ Arthur Benoni Evans ~
"The Mohammedans have ninety-nine names for God, 
but among them all they have not 'Our Father' ." 
~ unknown ~
"No one ever said at the end of his days, "I have read my Bible too much, I have thought of God too much, I have prayed too much, I have been too careful with my soul." ~ J. C. Ryle ~
"A little faith will bring your soul to heaven,
a great faith will bring heaven to your soul."
"The Bible grows more beautiful, as we grow in our understanding of it." ~ Goethe ~
"The Bible is the Rock upon which this Republic rests." 
"The existence of the Bible, as a book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced. Every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity." ~ Immanuel Kant ~
"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." 
"This Book (the Bible) had to be written by one of three people: good men, bad men or God. It couldn't have been written by good men because they said it was inspired by the revelation of God. Good men don't lie and deceive. It couldn't have been written by bad men because bad men would not write something that would condemn themselves. It leaves only one conclusion. It was given by divine inspiration of God." ~ John Wesley ~
"It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible reading people.
The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom."

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, 
for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 
that the man of God may be competent, 
equipped for every good work."

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names will be kept for one week; around the world, people are praying.

  9. Kierkegaard's words cut straight to the truth and really, that is why so many, Christians & non-Christians alike, cannot reconcile with scripture. Because once they know what His word says, they are accountable .Being accountable to God is an awful thing when you know you want to do things your way. ( rebellion )

  10. "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."
    ~ George Washington ~

    A wise man was our first President!
    I wanted to let you now that I continue to pray for you regarding the sale of the farm. I've thought of you so often (and prayed for you) as we've had such a severe winter ...especially when you have to be out in the weather to take care of your animals.

    Hugs to you, Sandra.

  11. "Your word is a lamp to my feet
    and a light to my path."
    ~ Psalm 119:105 ~

    I love this sentence very much!

    a friend of mine - her husband died years ago - has a column with a cross on the top, and there yu find this sentence. It is so strong and full of pneuma!
