No Greater Legacy

There’s no greater legacy to leave behind than a life lived trusting the promises of God.

[Alistair Begg]



 
Psalm 20:7 ... Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
 
 
Psalm 48:14 ... For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
 
 
Proverbs 3:5 ... Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Mother

ƸӜƷ  Did any of you, parents, ever hear your child wake from sleep with some panic fear and shriek the mother's name through the darkness? Was not that a more powerful appeal than all words? And, depend upon it, that the soul which cries aloud on God, "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ," though it have "no language but a cry," will never call in vain.
[Alexander MacLaren]
 
 
 
ƸӜƷ  Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.
[Billy Graham]
 
 
ƸӜƷ  I don't believe there are devils enough in hell to pull a boy out of the arms of a godly mother.
[Billy Sunday]
 
 
ƸӜƷ  The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
[Henry Ward Beecher]
 
 
ƸӜƷ  The impression that a praying mother leaves upon her children is life-long.
[D.L. Moody]
 

ƸӜƷ  Ladies, [motherhood] is a full-time job. Do not kid yourself that you can be a dental receptionist and a mother; that you can be a typist and a mom; that you can be a Vice President and a mom. One of the two things will win. Now look at your Bible and ask what you have to do.
[Alistair Begg]


ƸӜƷ  My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.
[Georg Washington]


Titus 2:1-5 ... But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.  The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;  That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,  To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Fall in Love

Let us remember the loving-kindness of the Lord and rehearse His deeds of grace. Let us open the volume of recollection, which is so richly illuminated with memories of His mercy, and we will soon be happy.
 
[Alistair Begg]
 
 
 
 
Romans 13:14 ... But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
 
 
 
Galatians 3:27 ... For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
 
 
Hebrews 1:9 ... Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
 
 
Philippians 2:1-2 ... If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,  Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Steps

Follow boldly in your Master's steps, for He has made this rough journey before you.  Better a brief warfare and eternal rest than false peace and everlasting torment.

[Alistair Begg]






2 Corinthians 4:17 … For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

1 Timothy 6:12 … Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Matthew 16:24-25 … Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Friends

The Christian will be sure to make enemies. It will be one of his objects to make none; but if doing what is right and believing what is true should cause him to lose every earthly friend, he will regard it as a small loss, since his great Friend in heaven will be even more friendly and will reveal Himself to him more graciously than ever.

[Alistair Begg]



John 15:18-19 ... If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

1 John 3:13 ... Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.


Psalm 50:23 ... Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.


Proverbs 22:11 ... He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend. ❤

Pleasing God

We make a great mistake if we think of pleasing God as a compartment of life marked “spiritual” or “religious” rather than as a total way of life involving pleasing God in all its aspects.


[Alistair Begg]


3 John 1:3... For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.


2 Corinthians 5:9 ... Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.


1 John 2:6 ... He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.❤
