Each Sunday, I try to post a devotional thought for you to meditate on. Sometimes it will be something out of my own studies and prayers. Other times – like today – it will be from another source.
Today, I am posting quotes about true salvation & repentance from a serious of pastors/theologians, courtesy of Grace Gems:
“Some people want only as much of God’s salvation as will keep them out of Hell, and they measure out with unconscious precision how much worldliness and sin they can still hang on to without jeopardizing their chances. This is ‘conversion’ without repentance. Flee from it!” David Shepherd
“Are you guilty of this insidious practice? Are you unconsciously weighing out each day how much sin and worldliness you can still enjoy, and yet miss Hell’s eternal torment and flames? If this is the case with you, then you are a religious pretender and a gross hypocrite who needs to swiftly run to the foot of the Cross and repent of such an atrocity!
“A ‘worldly Christian’? Can there be such a thing? Or is this a term that the backslidden Church came up with to try to appease their guilty consciences and to excuse their ungodly ways? The concept of a ‘worldly Christian’ is a total absurdity! A true Christian is devoted, dedicated, or consecrated to God’s service–not worldliness. We are either devoted to Jesus–or to the world. Which is it for you?” C. Giordano
“Nothing worse can happen to a church, than to be conformed to this world! Those who would be transfigured by Jesus, must not be disfigured by conformity to the world.”Charles Spurgeon
“If I find anyone who is settled down too snugly into this world, I always doubt whether he’s ever truly been born again.”A.W. Tozer
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money!” Matthew
