Quotes About Rousing

"Trusting Gods grace means trusting Gods love for us rather than our love for God. […] Therefore our prayers should consist mainly of rousing our awareness of Gods love for us rather than trying to rouse Gods awareness of our love for him, like the priests of Baal on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:26-29)." - Author: Peter Kreeft

Quotes About Luxe

"I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth "home." Before you know it, I am calling luxeries "needs" and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I dont think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace. I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set." - Author: John Piper
