Every day is important for us because it is a day ordained by God. If we are bored with life there is something wrong with our concept of God and His involvement in our daily lives. Even the most dull and tedious days of our lives are ordained by God and ought to be used by us to glorify Him  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Evil Rulers Are Never Beyond The Bounds of God’s Sovereign Will  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) self-control is not control by oneself through one's own willpower but rather control of oneself through the power of the Holy Spirit  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Holiness is nothing less than conformity to the character of God  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Every day of our Christian experience should be a day of relating to God on the basis of His grace alone. We are not only saved by grace, but we also live by grace every day  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Practice of true community involves responsibilities and actions that do not come naturally to us  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Holiness requires continual effort on our part and continual nourishing and strengthening by the Spirit  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) That which should distinguish the suffering of believers from unbelievers is the confidence that our suffering is under the control of an all-powerful and all-loving God. Our suffering has meaning and purpose in God's eternal plan, and He brings or allows to come into our lives only that which is for His glory and our good  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) The Holy Spirit makes us aware of our lack of holiness to stimulate us to deeper yearning and striving for holiness. But Satan will attempt to use the Holy Spirit's work to discourage us  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Lord, I am willing to receive what you give. To lack what you withhold. To relinquish what you take, to suffer what you inflict, to be what you require  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) We ought to be as earnest and frequent in our prayers of thanksgiving when the cupboard is full as we would be in our prayers of supplication if the cupboards were bare  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Trust is not a passive state of mind. It is a vigorous act of the soul by which we choose to lay hold on the promises of God and cling to them despite the adversity that at times seeks to overwhelms us  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Jesus did not die just to save us from the penalty of sin, nor even just to make us holy in our standing before God. He died to purify for Himself a people eager to obey Him, a people eager to be transformed into His likeness  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) God in His love always wills what is best for us. In His wisdom He always knows what is best, and in His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) The wisdom of the chess player is displayed more in winning over a capable opponent than a novice. The wisdom of the general is displayed more in defeating a superior army than in subduing an inferior one. Even more so, the wisdom of God is displayed when He brings good to us and glory to Himself out of confusion and calamity rather than out of pleasant times  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) God's guidance is almost always step-by-step; He does not show us our life's plan all at once. Sometimes our anxiousness to know the will of God comes from a desire to peer over God's shoulder to see what His plan is. What we need to do is learn to trust Him to guide us  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Only those who walk in holiness experience true joy  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Obedience is the pathway to holiness  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) ... self-control is not control by oneself through one’s own willpower but rather control of oneself through the power of the Holy Spirit  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) So often we try to develop Christian character and conduct without taking the time to develop God-centered devotion. We try to please God without taking the time to walk with Him and develop a relationship with Him. This is impossible to do  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Prayer assumes the sovereignty of God. If God is not sovereign, we have no assurance that He is able to answer our prayers. Our prayers would become nothing more than wishes. But while God’s sovereignty, along with his wisdom and love, is the foundation of our trust in Him, prayer is the expression of that trust  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) God never allows pain without a purpose in the lives of His children. He never allows Satan, nor circumstances, nor any ill-intending person to afflict us unless He uses that affliction for our good. God never wastes pain. He always causes it to work together for our ultimate good, the good of conforming us more to the likeness of His Son (see Romans 8:28-29)  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Don’t believe everything you think. You cannot be trusted to tell yourself the truth. Stay in The Word  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Love is costly. T forgive in love costs us our sense of justice. To serve in love costs us time. To share in love costs us money. Every act of love costs us in some way, just as it cost God to love us. But we are to live a life of love just as Christ loves us and gave Himself for us at great cost to Himself  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Grace... expresses two complementary thoughts: God’s unmerited favor to us through Christ, and God’s divine assistance to us through the Holy Spirit  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) The person who fears God seeks to live all of life to the glory of God... All the activities of life should be pursued with the aim of glorifying God  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) God does not delight in our sufferings. He brings only that which is necessary, but He does not shrink from that which will help us grow  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Here is a spiritual principle: We cannot exercise love unless we are experiencing grace. You cannot truly love others unless you are convinced that God’s love for you is unconditional, based solely on the merit of Christ, not on your performance. Our love, either to God or to others, can only be a response to His love for us  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Three means by which God assures us that we do have eternal life: 1. The promises of His Word, 2. The witness of the Spirit in our hearts, 3. The transforming work of the Spirit in our lives  (Jerry Bridges Quotes) Giving thanks to God for both His temporal and spiritual blessings in our lives is not just a nice thing to do - it is the moral will of God. Failure to give Him the thanks due Him is sin  (Jerry Bridges Quotes)
