Brandon Andress

Wisdom of the Ages

“If economies collapse and lawlessness rules and resources are scarce, many people who claim with their mouths that they follow Jesus… will abandon him with their lives.”
― Brandon Andress

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
Luke 21:34-36

Wisdom of the Ages – Silouan the Athonite

The grace of the Holy Spirit is also given for obedience. This is why obedience is higher than prayer and fasting

Wisdom of the Ages

“By obedience a man is guarded against pride. Prayer is given for the sake of obedience. The grace of the Holy Spirit is also given for obedience. This is why obedience is higher than prayer and fasting.”
Silouan the Athonite

Frederick W. Robertson

Wisdom of the Ages

“It is not a minister’s wisdom but his conviction which imparts itself to others. Nothing gives life but life. Real flame alone kindles other flame; this was the power of the apostles: “We believe and therefore speak.” Firm faith in what they spoke, that was the basis of the apostles’ strength.
– Frederick W. Robertson

Wisdom of the Ages – Jerry Bridges

No one can attain any degree of holiness without God working in his life, but just as surely no one will attain it without effort on his own part

Wisdom of the Ages

“The pursuit of holiness is a joint venture between God and the Christian. No one can attain any degree of holiness without God working in his life, but just as surely no one will attain it without effort on his own part”
– Jerry Bridges
