Instead of being losers, we are inescapable winners. Ours is a faith for victory. Thus, if you are Christ’s, stop talking about defeat. There is a world to be conquered, and we are the people called to do it.
— R. J. Rushdoony
As the strongest faith may be shaken, so the weakest, where trust is, is so far rooted that it will prevail. Weakness with watchfulness will stand, when strength with too much confidence fails. Weakness, with acknowledgement of it, is the fittest seat and subject for God to perfect His strength in; for consciousness of our infirmities drives us out of ourselves to Him in whom our strength lives.
— Richard Sibbes
