Quotes Of The Month:

“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them stronger than God? Oh, be not weary of well-doing! Go on, in the name of God and in the power of His might, till even American slavery shall vanish away before it.” ~ John Wesley, on his deathbed, writing to William Wilberforce, ultimately responsible for changing Britain’s slave laws

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” – Jim Elliot, one of five Christian missionaries martyred in Ecuador in 1956
