Quotes I Love

Just recently I heard these quotes from a man I respect greatly.

"The idea of Eternal Life is not just a future event it begins right now"

He is referring to the fact that changed lives occur when God saves someone.

"Just because people proclaim truth, that needs to be matched with fruits of the Spirit"

Does your preaching and your life mesh up?

"Do you get saved by Grace but then must live by works?"

I think so often I see people living under a banner of works based righteousness, unintentionally or legalistically. Do not get me wrong, works are an outflow of the Grace God has given you, but it is not a saving works, or a status works like some make it out to be.
