Romans 12:12  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Nature forms us, sin deforms us, education informs us, society reforms us, but only Jesus Christ can transform us. There is no one so bad—that he cannot be saved. There is no one so good—that he need not be saved.

Wit And Wisdom From Pastor Adrian Rogers!

Reputation is what others think about you. Character is what God knows about you.

Anything you love more, fear more, serve more, or value more than God—is your idol!
If I put things between me and Christ—it is idolatry.
If I put Christ between me and things—it is a victory!
Justice is God giving us what we deserve.
Mercy is God not giving us what we deserve.
Grace is God giving us what we don’t deserve.
 
God only wants for us, what we would want for ourselves—if we were smart enough to know what is best for us.
Character is what we are in the dark.
We are not in a race. We are on a pilgrimage.
 
The devil would just as soon send you to Hell from the pew—as from the gutter!
Serenity is not freedom from the storm—but peace amid the storm.
 
Holiness is not the way to Christ. Christ is the way to holiness.
 
Your character is the harvest of your habits.
 
Is what I’m living for—worth Christ’s dying for?
 
Humility is knowing what I am, acknowledging that God made me that way, and giving Him glory for it.
To ridicule a preacher who warns of Hell—would be the same as to ridicule a doctor who warns of cancer!
You can live with victory over the desires of your flesh. Habits, attitudes, desires, worries, and dissipation must yield—as you exercise authority over your mind, emotions, and will.
 
It is better to be frightened into Heaven—than lulled into Hell!
 
It is more important to influence people—than to impress them.
 
Without knowledge of Jesus—all education is but splendid ignorance.
If you educate people without a knowledge of our Lord—you make them clever devils.
 
Wisdom is having a mind that is stayed on God, full of the Word of God, and led by the Spirit of God.
God did not spare His own Son from the cross.
What makes you think He will spare you from rejecting the cross?
Some people go to Hell—with a chest full of Sunday school attendance pins!
You take care of your character—and God will take care of your reputation.
 
You can laugh your way into Hell—but not out it!
“The Lord laughs at the wicked—for He knows their day is coming!” Psalm 37:13
 
Life is too short, eternity is too long souls are too precious, the Gospel is too wonderful—
for us to sleep through it all!
 
God’s plan is to take ordinary people with ordinary talents, do extraordinary things through them—and then give all the glory to Himself.
 
I can preach the truth—but only the Holy Spirit can impart truth.
 
God is sovereign—so live confidently.
God is holy—so live reverently.
 
Pride is #1 on God’s hate parade.
 
Heaven is not a reward for the righteous—it’s a gift for the guilty.
