"You are going to face death some day. You are going to face that last moment, barring Christ's return, where you are going to be terrified of sin, death, and the devil. And at that point you are either going to say, 'I have lived the victorious life' or you are going to say, 'Dearest Jesus, forgive me! I am a beggar and a sinner!' I would say you either say the latter, or you will not spend eternity with Him in heaven."

--Pastor Matt Harrison, LCMS World Relief
"In the hospitality of war, we left them their dead as a gift to remember us by."

"Every Christian without exception is a believer, a lover and a hoper (not necessarily an optimist, since 'optimism' is a matter of temperament, 'hope' of theology). Faith, hope and love are thus sure evidences of regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Together they completely reorientate our lives, as we find ourselves being drawn up towards God in faith, out towards others in love and on towards the parousia in hope. The new birth means little or nothing if it does not pull us out of our fallen introversion and redirect us towards God, Christ and our fellow human beings."

-- John R. W. Stott
