Sabbath Keeping

The grass withers,
the flower fades,
but the word of our God stands forever."
~ Isaiah 40: 8 ~

"I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven." ~ A. W. Tozer ~

"Reading the Bible without meditating on it
is like trying to eat without swallowing."
~ unknown ~

"The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed." ~ Patrick Henry ~

"You may as well quit reading and hearing the Word of God, and give it to the devil, if you do not desire to live according to it." ~ Martin Luther ~

"The Bible teaches that there will be a famine of the Word of God in the last days...spiritual starvation leads to spiritual death." ~ Billy Graham ~

"Here, then, is the real problem of our negligence. We fail in our duty to study God's Word not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or a lack of passion.
Our problem is that we are lazy."  ~ R. C. Sproul ~

"One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed." ~ Leonard Ravenhill ~

"I am a creature of a day. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God. I want to know one thing: the way to heaven. God himself has condescended to teach me the way. He has written it down in a book. Oh, give me that book! At any price give me the book of God. Let me be a man of one book." ~ John Wesley ~

"The word of God hidden in the heart is a stubborn voice to suppress." ~ Billy Graham ~

"No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says: 
he is always convinced that it says what he means."
~ George Bernard Shaw

"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 of their country and respectable members of society. I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year." ~ John Quincy Adams ~

"If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the Scriptures." ~ Daniel Webster ~

"It is a mistake to look to the Bible to close a discussion;
the Bible seeks to open one."
~ William Sloane Coffin ~

"The Holy Book of the living God suffers more from its exponents today than from it's opponents."
~ Leonard Ravenhill ~

"Never place a period where God has placed a comma.
God is still speaking."
~ Gracie Allen

"When you read God's Word, you must constantly be saying to yourself, "It is talking to me, and about me. " ~ Soren Kierkegaard ~

"I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the scriptures do not reign paramount." ~ Martin Luther ~ 

"Heaven and earth will pass away ,
but my words will be no means pass away."
~ Matthew 24:35 ~

Please pray for ~ Jim ~ Steph and Walt ~ Patty and daughters ~ Nancy and Julie ~ Bonnie Jean and family ~ Diana and her Hero ~ Anita ~ Mildred and John ~ Sandra ~ 


  1. Is that THE Gracie Allen? I love that! Such great and compelling quotes on Scripture but I especially like the John Quincy Adams one, another reason to admire the man.

  2. There's a lot of truth in the R.C. Sproul quote. I know I suffer from spiritual laziness. I was wondering, too, if that was THE Gracie Allen. :)

  3. Thanks, SB! I love it when I notice that someone's bible is very worn, loved, used.

  4. Keep Calm and trust the Lord! Love this yvonne
