The Saviour would have passed through the agony of Calvary that one might be saved in His kingdom. He will never abandon one for whom He has died.
None know how to prize the saviour, but such as are zealous in pious works for others.
...It is the supreme prayer, described the mother of the Vedas, named after its metre which means “the saviour of the singer”, revealed to sage Vishvamitra. Gayatri is the mantra of the real Guru, the Omniscient God. The writers of the scriptures call it the “Soul of the Vedas’.
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
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.
Hear what comfortable words our saviour Christ saith unto all that truly turn to him.
Hark, the glad sound! The saviour comes, The saviour promised long; Let every heart exult with joy, And every voice be song!Philip Doddridge
Not till we come to a simple reliance on the blood and mediation of the saviour, shall we know what it is either to have trust in God, or know what it is to walk before Him without fear, in righteousness and true holiness.thomas chalmers
When you sincerely embrace Jesus as your saviour, and rest on His atonement for pardon, when you look to Him for daily direction, lean on Him for support, and are joined to Him in heart union, then you may be sure that you have got the everlasting rock bed underneath you.theodore l. cuyler
Trust yourselves, my brethren, to the immortal love and perfect work of the Divine saviour, and by His dear might your days will advance by peaceful stages, whereof each gathers up and carries forward the blessings of all that went before, to a death which shall be a birth.alexander maclaren
Christ died for the ungodly. And if you turn to Him at this moment with an honest heart, and receive Him simply as your saviour and your God, I have the authority of His word for telling you that He will in no wise cast out.dwight l. moody
Amid the stirring and manifold activities of the age in which we live, to be neutral in the strife is to rank with the enemies of the saviour. There is no greater foe to the spread of His cause in the world than the placid indifferentism which is too honorable to betray, while it is too careless or too cowardly to join Him.william morley punshon
Sadness came into the world with Satan that world our saviour never prayed for, the world you say I do not know. Oh, it is not so difficult to recognize: it is the world that prefers cold to warmth! What can God find to say to those who, of their own free will, of their own weight incline towards sadness and turn instinctively towards the night?Georges Bernanos
The cup which my saviour giveth me, can it be any thing but a cup of salvation?
In the dark and cloudy day, When earth's riches flee away, And the last hope will not stay, saviour, comfort me.
So frequent was this Hebrew in the mouth of Our saviour that it pleased the Holy Ghost to have it perpetuated in the Church of God.
Not she with trait'rous kiss her saviour stun. Not she denied Him with unholy tongue. She, while apostles shrank, could danger brave, last at His cross, and earliest at His grave.
We may say that on the first Good Friday afternoon was completed that great act by which light conquered darkness and goodness conquered sin . That is the wonder of our saviour 's crucifixion .
On the Great and Holy Friday we commemorate the holy, saving and awesome sufferings of our Lord and God and saviour Jesus Christ: the spitting, the striking, the scourging, the cursing, the mockery; the crown of thorns, the purple cloak , the rod, the sponge, the vinegar and gall, the nails, the spear; and above all the cross and the death, which He voluntarily endured for us. Also we commemorate the saving confession of the grateful thief who was crucified with Him.
He that forgets his friend is ungrateful to him, but he that forgets the saviour is unmerciful to himself.
The thing of all others that unfits men for the reception of Christ as a saviour, and for the simple reliance on His atoning blood and Divine mercy, is not gross, long profligacy, and outward, vehement transgression; but it is self-complacency, clean, fatal self-righteousness,and self-sufficiency.
My brethren, surely the time has come for us to return to the Lord's plan. Among us there are children to be clothed, widows to be aided, and afflicted ones to be cared for. As you draw near to the poor, the saviour will come nearer to you.
