What Do You Want?

“But the question to precede all others, which finally determines the course of our lives is, 'What do I really want?' Was it to love what God commands, in the words of the collect, and to desire what He promises? Did I want what I wanted, or did I want what He wanted, no matter what it might cost?”  ~ Elizabeth Elliot

Agape Love

"Agape, however, is a completely different dimension of love. It is a quality of a person rather than a different kind of love. It is a principle by which one orders life—or by which life is ordered." ~ Mildred Wynkoop

Faith Is...

"Faith, in general, is a divine, supernatural . . . (evidence, or conviction) of things not seen, nor discoverable by our bodily senses, as being either past, future, or spiritual. Justifying faith implies . . . a sure trust and confidence that Christ died for my sins, that he loved me and gave himself for me. And the moment a penitent sinner believes this, God pardons and absolves him." ~ John Wesley
