Christ is like a river that is continually flowing.  There are always fresh supplies of water coming from the fountain-head, so that a man may live by it and be supplied with water all his life.

From Romans 8:38-39:  “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Resolution One:  I will live for God.  Resolution Two:  If no one else does, I still will.

From Romans 6:10-11:  “The death He died, He died to sin, once for all; bu the life He lives, He lives to God.  So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

Lord, stamp eternity on my eyeballs.

From Romans 5:21:  “So that, just as sin exercised dominion in death, so grace might also exercise dominion through justification leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Be assiduous [diligent] in reading the Holy Scriptures.  This is the fountain whence all knowledge in divinity must be derived.  Therefore, let not this treasure lie by you neglected.

From Matthew 4:4:  “But He [Jesus] answered, ‘It is written, One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil’s reach as humility.

From Philippians 2:3:  “Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.”
