The Quotable Christian--Cool link of the Day

Are you the kind of person who poors over books (or your poor, overworked memory banks) trying to lay your hands on that perfect quote? You may even Google--when no one is looking.

Take heart. Here's a place to start. This site quotes different authors on many topics. Here are a couple of examples on Grace (the rest you'll have to check out for yourself).

Night and day I pondered until I saw the connection between the justice of God and the statement that 'the just shall live by his faith.' Then I grasped that the justice of God is that righteousness by which through grace and sheer mercy God justifies us through faith. Thereupon I felt myself to be reborn and to have gone through open doors into paradise.
Martin Luther

The man who has nothing more than a kind of Sunday religion--whose Christianity is like his Sunday clothes put on once a week, and then laid aside--such a man cannot, of course, be expected to care about growth in grace.
J.C. Ryle
