THE VITAL IMPORTANCE OF GOD’S WORD

“The Christian is not to be governed by the thoughts of his fellow-man,
but simply and solely by the Word of God.  I must hold it directly from God,
Himself.  God may use a man to communicate His truth;  but unless I hold
it as from God, it has no divine power over my heart and conscience; it
does not bring me into living contact with God, but actually hinders that
contact by bringing in something between my soul and His holy authority.”
C.H.M.

Norman Maclean……Quote

“Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don’t know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them – we can love completely without complete understanding.”
