Some Quotations On Grace

C.H. Spurgeon: "The higher a man is in grace. The lower he will be in his own esteem."
J.C. Ryle: "The man who has nothing more than a kind of Sunday religion -- whose Christianity is like his Sunday clothes put on once a week, and then laid aside -- such a man cannot, of course, be expected to care about growth in grace."
Anon - “Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.”
Louis Cassels (1922-1974) - “If God wants you to do something, he'll make it possible for you to do it, but the grace he provides comes only with the task and cannot be stockpiled beforehand. We are dependent on him from hour to hour, and the greater our awareness of this fact, the less likely we are to faint or fail in a crisis.”

I end with the famous words of Annie Johnson Flint:

"He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater, He sendeth more strength as our labours increase;
to added afflictions He addeth His mercy, to multiplied trials He multiplies peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance, when our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
when we reach the end of our hoarded resources our Father’s full giving is only begun.

His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men;
for out of His infinite riches in Jesus He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again."
