"Christians ought not to be smothered in fear. There is a spiritual readiness, where we return to having the peace of God stand guard over our hearts and minds. What an incredible witness it is to a lost and fearful society when the Christian acts like a child of God, living under the loving sovereignty of the Heavenly Father. The Christian needs to walk in peace, so no matter what happens they will be able to bear witness to a watching world."
— Henry Blackaby
"We cannot bear sin - when it is near us, we feel like a wretch chained to a rotting carcass; we groan to be free of the hateful thing."
