8 Enlightening Quotes on God’s Grace

God's Grace

Sharing the Gospel is all about spreading God’s good news. And what’s better news than the fact that Jesus died for our sins and forgives us regardless of our past iniquities? God’s grace is extended to his children not because of anything we’ve done or could do—grace is kindness from God that we don’t deserve.

To help you spread the Gospel of God, here are eight shareable quotes about God’s unfailing grace:

1.  “Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God’s favor.” (click to tweet)

Dwight L. Moody

2. “Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.” (click to tweet)

Max Lucado

3. “Grace is not simply leniency when we have sinned. Grace is the enabling gift of God not to sin. Grace is power, not just pardon.” (click to tweet)

John Piper

4. “Saving us is the greatest and most concrete demonstration of God’s love, the definitive display of His grace throughout time and eternity.” (click to tweet)

David Jeremiah

5. “A man is not saved against his will, but he is made willing by the operation of the Holy Ghost. A mighty grace which he does not wish to resist enters into the man, disarms him, makes a new creature of him, and he is saved.” (click to tweet)

Charles Spurgeon

6. “It is grace at the beginning, and grace at the end. So that when you and I come to lie upon our death beds, the one thing that should comfort and help and strengthen us there is the thing that helped us in the beginning. Not what we have been, not what we have done, but the Grace of God in Jesus Christ our Lord.” (click to tweet)

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

7. “Within each of us exists the image of God, however disfigured and corrupted by sin it may presently be. God is able to recover this image through grace as we are conformed to Christ.” (click to tweet)

Alister McGrath

8. “Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.” (click to tweet)

Jerry Bridges

7 Inspirational Quotes on Prayer

National Day of Prayer

Today is the National Day of Prayer: a day when we come together to pray for those around us.

Mother Teresa put it best when she said, “Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” Prayer is a powerful and intimate way to connect with God.

In honor of the National Day of Prayer, we’ve compiled seven quotes on prayer from some of Vryso’s featured ebooks:

1. “Everything done under the heavens is accomplished through prayer. Nothing will stand against the forces of evil without it.” (click to tweet)

—John Bornschein, The Front Line: A Prayer Warrior’s Guide to Spiritual Battle

2. “Jesus taught us to lead creatively and wisely, but he refused to tell us exactly how to do it. He just said that the Word of God must be our Truth, and that he would leave his Spirit to guide ours. He  told us to pray.” (click to tweet)

—Richard Kriegbaum, Leadership Prayers

3. “Not only do our prayers please God, the Holy Spirit uses them to accomplish heaven’s purpose on earth.” (click to tweet)

—Bryan Chapell, Praying Backwards

4. “Perpetual prayer . . . will unleash the power.” (click to tweet)

—Dutch Sheets, Authority in Prayer

5. “When praying for marital authenticity, pray for the kind of heart and authentic spirit that Jesus modeled for us.” (click to tweet)

—Will Davis Jr., Pray Big for Your Marriage: The Power of Praying God’s Promises for Your Relationship

6. “God answers all of His children’s prayers. Often not instantly or in the way we would imagine, but He faithfully answers our prayers, often exceeding our requests.” (click to tweet)

—Lana Bateman, The Heart of Prayer

7. “Our Lord has given us a simple prescription for anxiety—pray. This medication claims to bring the peace of God that transcends all understanding.” (click to tweet)

—Susan Sorensen, Praying through Cancer: Set Your Heart Free from Fear
