Biblical, battle-tested, real-life help for "living by faith in the Son of God" (Galatians 2:20). — Steve Fuller

Quote: William Gurnall on Fighting Sin

“It is impossible to sin with lively thoughts and hopes of the glory of heaven.

“It’s when the thoughts of heaven are long out of the Christian’s sight that he begins to set up some idol.

“But let heaven come in sight, and the Christian’s heart will be well warmed with thoughts of it.

“It is easier to persuade a king to throw his crown into a gutter, than to persuade a heaven-focused saint to sin.”

    Steve, as I read your post this text popped into my mind. “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” (Philippians 4:8 ESV)
