"Two words in the Christian language cannot go together: No, Lord. If you say No, He is not your Lord. If He really is your Lord, your answer must always be Yes." - Experiencing God
"Thomas had been saved in a refugee camp in Thailand...... He went through the community trying to led his Laotian brothers to Christ. The first week Thomas led fifteen adults to the Lord. The next week he led eleven to the Lord, and he wept because he felt he was so unfaithful to the Lord" - Experiencing God
“King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”- Daniel 3:17-18
When you see the greatness of our God, then you'll truly know, there is nothing that you cannot lose. Is that sacrifice really that big in the light of eternal salvation? You can lose all things in life and yet still have life itself, and when even that is taken away..so what? If I perish, I perish.
It's time to start reevaluating do we really know how great God is.
