"Your joy, as a Christian, will never be found in your circumstances, regardless of how good they may be at the moment."
"How do you have joy in trying times? How do you have joy when your movements are restricted? By understanding that in God's sovereignty, you are exactly where you are because, before the foundation of the world, that's where God appointed you to be."
"Therefore, if you were saved by grace and not through any effort of your own, then there is no room for self-centeredness in Christ. What did you bring to the table?"
