Useful Quotes

Thomas Watson:

“We aim at God’s glory when we are content that God’s will should take place, though it may cross our own.”

“Thus to love God is to glorify Him.  That which is the chief of our happiness has the chief of our affections.”

Artrichus of Dreshaan:*

“God created the universe to glorify Him.  Thus, if I have not glorified God today, then I have failed in my purpose for existing.”

Thomas Wilcox:

“Untried faith is uncertain faith.”

Thomas a Kempis:

“It is by gradual advances, rather than impetuous efforts, that victory is obtained; rather by patient suffering, that looks to God for support, than by impatient solicitude and rigorous austerity.”

Jonathan Edwards:

“Humility is often found connected with long-suffering.”

Richard Baxter:

“It is a mercy to have a faithful friend that loveth you entirely… to whom you may open your mind and communicate your affairs… And it is a mercy to have so near a friend to be a helper to your soul and… to stir up in you the grace of God.”

*I came across this quote as attributed to Artrichus of Dreshaan; however, I’ve never been able to confirm the name or the quote.  Yet, I find it worth sharing despite my inability to find any legitimate citation.
