1st main point


Colossians 3:12

Martin Lloyd-Jones:

“The glory of the gospel is that when the church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it.

It is then that the world is made to listen to her message though it may hate it at first.”

Stuart Townend:

“How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure”

2 Corinthians 5:21

I Peter 2:21-24

Colossians 3:10

Maria Taylor:

“As to the harsh judgings of the world, or the more painful misunderstandings of Christian brethren, I generally feel that the best plan is to go on with our work and leave God to vindicate our cause.”

Maria Taylor’s grave marker:

“For her to live was Christ, and to die was gain.”

2nd main point:


Colossians 3:12-14

Colossians 3:11

F.F. Bruce:

“The grace that binds all these other graces together.”

C.S. Lewis:

“Everybody says forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have someone else to forgive.”

John Perkins:

“Dr. Roberts was one of the few white persons I had contact with at that time, and she—well, she met me on the level of my humanity and not just on the theological level preferred by so many church folks.”

Old Parable:

“To live above with the saints we love,

Oh, that will be glory.

But to live below with the saints we know,

Well, that’s another story.”

3rd main point


Colossians 3:15-17


“After water for the hands and lights have been brought in, each is invited to sing to God in the presence of the others with his own heart.”

John Perkins:

“I couldn’t get away from that….It’s a profound mysterious truth—Jesus’ concept of love overpowering hate. I may not see its victory in my lifetime. But I know it’s true. I know it’s true, because it happened to me. On that bed, full of bruises and stitches—God made it true to me. He washed my hatred away and replaced it with a love for the white man in rural Mississippi.”

John Newton:

“A real Christian finds the worst times tolerable and the best times leave able.”
