None know how to prize the Saviour, but such as are zealous in pious works for others.
Precious saviour! come in spirit, and lay Thy strong, gentle grasp of love on our dear boys and girls, and keep these our lambs from the fangs of the wolf.theodore l. cuyler
As we look upon that agony and those tearful prayers, let us not only look with thankfulness; but lot that kneeling saviour teach us that in prayer alone can we be forearmed against our lesser sorrows; that strength to bear flows into the heart that is opened in supplication; and that a sorrow which we are made able to endure is more truly cohijuered than a sorrow which we avoid.alexander maclaren
Surely it is a matter of joy, that your faith in Jesus has been preserved; the Comforter that should relieve you is not far from you. But as you are a Christian, in the name of that saviour, who was filled with bitterness and made druken with wormwood, I conjre you to have recourse in frequent prayer to 'his God and your God,' the God of mercies, and father of all comfort. Your poor father is, I hope, almost senseless of the calamity; the unconscious instrument of Divine Providence knows it not, and your mother is in heaven.Charles Lamb
It is sufficiently evident from many circumstances, that the doctrine of the divinity of Christ did not establish itself without much opposition, especially from the unlearned among the Christians, who thought that it savoured of Polytheism , that it was introduced by those who had had a philosophical education, and was by degrees adopted by others, on account of its covering the great offence of the cross , by exalting the personal dignity of our saviour.joseph priestley
In the presence of this blood banner which represents our Führer, I swear to devote all my energies and my strength to the saviour of our country, Adolf Hitler. I am willing and ready to give up my life for him, so help me God.baldur von schirach
Christ is not God, not the saviour of the world, but a mere man, a sinful man, and an abominable idol. All who worship him are abominable idolaters. And Christ did not rise again from death to life nor did he ascend into heaven.
Jesu, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high; Hide me,O my saviour, hide, Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last.Charles Wesley
Such was God's original love for man, that He was willing to stoop to any sacrifice to save him; and the gift of a saviour was the mere expression of that love.albert barnes
When life has been well spent; when there is a conscience without reproach; when there is faith in the saviour; when there is a well-founded hope of heaven, there can be nothing that should disquiet us.albert barnes
What to my saviour shall I giveWho freely hath done this for me?I'll serve him here whilst I shall liveAnd Loue him to Eternityanne bradstreet
Dear saviour! we are Thine,By everlasting bands;Our hearts, our souls, we would resignEntirely to Thy hands.Philip Doddridge
Faith then, in its relation to salvation, is that confidence by which we accept it as a free gift from the saviour, and is the only possible way in which the gift of God could be appropriated.mark hopkins
But if there has been on this earth no real, perfect human life, no love that never cooled, no faith that never failed, which may shine as a loadstar across the darkness of our experience, a light to light amidst all convictions of our own meanness and all suspicions of other's littleness, why, we may have a religion, but we have not a Christianity. For if we lose Him as a Brother, we cannot feel Him as a saviour.frederick william robertson
My saviour! fill up the blurred and blotted sketch which my clumsy hand has drawn of a Divine life, with the fullness of Thy perfect picture. I feel the beauty I cannot realize; robe me in Thine unutterable purity.frederick william robertson
The true religion of Jesus Christ our saviour is that which penetrates, and which receives all the warmth of the heart, and all the elevation of the soul, and all the energies of the understanding, and all the strength of the will.arthur penrhyn stanley
In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the saviour gave to the world was communicated through this book.Abraham Lincoln
There is truth in Jesus which is terrible, as well as truth that is soothing; terrible, for He shall be Judge as well as saviour; and ye cannot face Him, ye cannot stand before Him, unless ye now give ear to His invitation.henry melvill
Brethren, is not this the saviour that you need? one who can save you from the utmost depths of depravity, in the utmost corner of the earth, on the utmost inch of time? One who can save you amidst the utmost urgency of fierce temptations, and who in the uttermost extreme of exhausted nature, when heart and flesh do faint and fail, completes the work, and seals the salvation for evermore?
Seek not only to know about the saviour, but seek confidence in Him, seek to know Him as your own.
There is truth in Jesus which is terrible, as well as truth that is soothing; terrible, for He shall be Judge as well as saviour; and ye cannot face Him, ye cannot stand before Him, unless ye now give ear to His invitation.
Teach us, Master, how to give All we have and are to Thee; Grant us, saviour, while we live, Wholly, only Thine to be.
I saw that God rejoiceth that He is our Father , and God rejoiceth that He is our Mother , and God rejoiceth that He is our Very Spouse and our soul is His loved Wife. And Christ rejoiceth that He is our Brother, and Jesus rejoiceth that He is our saviour. These are five high joys, as I understand, in which He willeth that we enjoy; Him praising, Him thanking, Him loving, Him endlessly blessing.
Oh, heaven without my saviour Would be no heaven to me; Dim were the walls of jasper Rayless the crystal sea. He gilds earth's darkest valleys With light and joy and peace; What then must be the radiance When night and death shall cease?
The disciples of a patient saviour should be patient themselves.
Thou soft-flowing Keedron by thy silver stream Our saviour at midnight when Cynthia's pale beam Shone bright on the waters, would oftentimes stray And lose in thy murmurs the toils of the day.
Christians awake, salute the happy morn whereon the saviour of the world was born.john byrom
