Quotes from Alone With God.

“Our life, breath, health, possessions, talents, and opportunities all originate from resources God has created and made available to man. Everything we have is from God: It is He who brings the rain to make things grow, causes the seasons to change, produces the minerals that make the soil fertile, provides the natural resources we use to propel ourselves around, and provides the animals and plants from which we make our clothing and food. Our daily bread—the necessities of physical life—are all from God.”
“If the true worshiper found it necessary, he should find the most secluded, private place available to avoid the temptation to show off. When he got there, he should close the door to keep out all distractions, so he could concentrate on God and pray to Him and Him alone.”
“For Christians to live in disobedience to God is the ultimate in taking His name in vain, claiming as Lord someone we’re not even willing to follow.”
“A few years ago someone suggested that we were living in post-Christian America. Although it struggles to deserve a nominal Christian label, today it is more like sub-Christian America. People attend religious services and say they believe in God, but at best they adhere to a practical atheism and situational morality. Whatever vestiges of Christian religion still remain in our culture have become weak and compromising, if not cultic and apostate.”
“The following is a New Testament list of all that is encompassed in a worthy walk: • Humility (Eph. 4:2–3) • Purity (Rom. 13:13) • Contentment (1 Cor. 7:17) • Faith (2 Cor. 5:7) • Righteousness (Eph. 2:10) • Unity (Phil. 1:27) • Gentleness (Eph. 4:2) • Patience (Col. 1:11) • Love (Eph. 5:2) • Joy (Col. 1:11) • Thankfulness (Col. 1:3) • Light (Eph. 5:8–9) • Knowledge (Col. 1:10) • Wisdom (Eph. 5:15–16) • Truth (3 John vv. 3–4) • Fruitfulness (Col. 1:10) If you truly belong to Christ, you ought to walk as He walked (1 John 2:6).”
