Great quotes from great spiritual thinkers of yesterday and today.
Today’s quotes are on dealing with sin and pursuing repentance in our lives.
“How else but through a broken heart may Lord Christ enter in?” –Oscar Wilde
“Learn this lesson: not to trust Christ because you repent, but trust Christ to make you repent; not to come to Christ because you have a broken heart, but to come to Him that He may give you a broken heart; not to come to Him because you are fit to come, but to come to Him because you are unfit to come. Your fitness is your unfitness. Your qualification is your lack of qualification.” – Charles Spurgeon
“We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” – C.S. Lewis
“Repentance, not proper behavior or even holiness, is the doorway to grace. And the opposite of sin is grace, not virtue.” – – Philip Yancey
“Little by little, the church loses its grip on essential things, becomes a social club, goes to sleep or flies off at a tangent. All over the world we find sleeping churches, and all round them are the gospel-starved masses. Instead of performing the first thing of importance, evangelizing the masses, they are engaged in a bewildering variety of pastimes–anything but the real thing.” – Edwin Orr
