May 11 Evening Quotes of The Day

The Difference Between the Opinion and Sense of God’s Holiness
Psalm 34:8; John 1:16–18; James 2:19

There is a difference between having an opinion that God is holy and gracious, and having a sense of the loveliness and beauty of that holiness and grace. There is a difference between having a rational judgment that honey is sweet, and having a sense of its sweetness. A man may have the former that knows not how honey tastes, but a man cannot have the latter unless he has an idea of the taste of honey in his mind.

God’s Word Has Authority in Any Language
Isaiah 28:11; 1 Corinthians 14:21

The scripture and word of God is truly to every Christian man of like worthiness and authority, in what language soever the Holy Ghost speaks it.
