Some Encouraging thoughts from Johny (Late John George Samuel)

Love and Sacrifice
  • True love is always ready to make sacrifices. (Rom. 8:31-35; John. 3:16; 1 Cor. 13:6-8)
  • We should ‘die’ for God here on earth to ‘reign’ with Him in Heaven. (John. 12:24; Phil. 3:11; Heb. 11:25-26)
  • Belonging to God involves willingness to sacrifice. (Luke. 9:23; Heb. 11:8; 1 Cor. 9:25)

  • No man ever sank beneath the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow’s burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than we can bear. It is delightfully easy to live one day at a time. (1 Pet. 5:7; Matt. 11:28; 6:34)
  • When it’s time to die, make sure that’s all you have to do. (John. 9:4; 2 Cor. 5:8; 2 Tim. 4:7)

God’s Intervention
  • It is not for us who are passengers to meddle with the chart and compass. Leave the all-skilled Pilot alone to do His work. (Heb. 3:6; Job. 19:25; Luke. 21:36)
  • Your guide will keep to no beaten path. He will lead you by a way such as you have never dreamed your eyes would look upon. He knows no fear, and He expects you to fear nothing while He is with you. (Is. 40:11; 58:11; Ps. 23: 1-2; 80:1)
  • The things which are impossible with men, are possible with God. (Gen. 18:14; Mat. 19:26; Luke. 1-37; 18:27)
