In some sense the path to heaven is very safe, but in other respects there is no road so dangerous.

From Jude 1:24:  “Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to make you stand without blemish in the presence of His glory.”

Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.

From 2 Timothy 3:16-17:  “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.”

Our hope in Christ for the future is the mainstream of our joy.

From Psalm 23:5-6:  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.”

The Lord gets His best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.

From 2 Corinthians 4:8-10:  “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.”

Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.

From 1 Peter 5:6-7:  “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”

A tried Christian grows rich by his loses, he rises by his falls, he lives by dying, and he becomes full by being emptied.

From James 1:2-4:  “My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.”

The instrument of our sanctification is the Word of God.  The Spirit of God brings to our minds the precepts and doctrines of truth, and applies them with power.  The truth is our sanctifier.  If we do not hear or read it, we will not grow in sanctification.

Apostle Paul writes in Romans 1:16:  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
