"We are sojourners and pilgrims whether we like it or not. We can secure things for ourselves with title deeds and policies and settlements, but we are still pilgrims and sojourners. Yet, in a truer sense we are those with whom the Lord has built a firm dwelling. He hath founded upon a rock. "Now, therefore, you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God: and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone."

"... Peter also uses this incident in the life of Noah, and finds a further application of it. In 1 Peter 3:20 he speaks of the longsuffering of God, who waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was preparing. God could have made the ark instantly, as He destroyed the firstborn of Egypt in a stroke, but in this case time had to be allowed for the public demonstration of the faith of the man whom God approved. The “answer of a good conscience” was not confined to climbing into the ark as the rain began to fall; it found its expression also in the testimony of word and work; the word openly spoken, supported by the undeniable evidence of the ark which at the one and the same time condemned the world, and testified to the faith of the man. Let us walk by the same rule."

"Let us see to it that this is true of us, by giving ourselves wholly to God’s service; loving Him with all our heart, and soul, and might; surrendering to Him the fat and strongest portion of our lives; living by every word that proceedeth out of His mouth; yielding ourselves to the influence of His Spirit: doing all things, however menial, as unto Him and solely to His glory. Then, in His mercy, when that day comes when the earth shall be full of His glory, and when even upon the bells of the horses shall be “Holiness to the Lord”. He will be pleased to dwell in us and admit us into perfect and eternal fellowship with Him and with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, our Saviour and our King.
 
"Now unto him that is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen." (Jude 24-25)"

"... Jesus knew the power of his word over that man who had come to try him, and encouraging, as he always did, the first glimmer of humble recognition in a man, he spurred him on with words that would never be forgotten, "Thou art not far from the kingdom of God". Many times we too long to have that encouragement. Yet to see with this lawyer the full scope of our calling, and to recognize humbly that it is satisfied in the love we bear to God and to each other, and not in the meticulous observance of religious conventions, is to have our feet firmly placed on the road to the Kingdom."

"From the beginning of His work of creation the Lord God of heaven and earth has maintained one supreme purpose, that of developing a community of beings able to enter into fellowship with Himself. He has done this by revealing to them principles of truth: His own eternal majesty and supremacy, their own physical weakness and moral frailty, and His desire that they should be saved from everlasting extinction through His infinite grace and mercy."
