God is light, and there is no darkness in Him whatsoever.
The kingdom of God is worth everything we have and everything we can give. Everything we hold dear should pale in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ.
God is at work in our lives to bring us to a place of peace—peace with ourselves, peace with other believers, and peace with God.
Knowing Christ should not be just one thing of many that is important to us; knowing Christ should be our ultimate, consuming passion.
