I love quotes

I read these two quotes today at Of First Importance and loved them. If you like reading what great pastors and theologians (current and long ago) have said you will love this site too.

"We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father. Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.”

—The Nicene Creed

"Oh! rejoice in the richness of our salvation! When the Lord pardoned our sins, he did not pardon half of them, and leave some of them on the book—but with one stroke of the pen he gave a full receipt for all our debts.

When we went down into the fountain filled with blood, and washed, we did not come up half-clean, but there was no spot nor wrinkle upon us—we were white as snow.”

—Charles Spurgeon, “The Joy of Salvation”

I absolutely love the second one! It is something I would like to continually remember cause sometimes I really struggle with that!

Happy 2010 and thanks for the comment on my blog, it has been a very long time! :)

Thank you for sharing! I remember memorizing the Nicene Creed for First Communion or Confirmation or one of the two back in the day. Amazing how I no longer go to my childhood church but will remember the liturgy forever :)!
