We Want The Crown Without The Cross.

Please click blue logo for more quotes! :)

Mankind wants glory. We want health. We want wealth. We want happiness. We want all our felt needs met, all our little human itches scratched. We want a painless life. We want the crown without the cross. We want the gain without the pain. We want the words of Christ’s salvation to be easy.

John MacArthur

  1. it can be so true. we want comfort and then a crown…that’s not the order of things, tho. thx for sharing 🙂

  2. u know i’d replied to u, btw…on some post a while back…i don’t remember what the original post was about, but i’d asked about asking God to heal your eyes…anyhow, good stuff. thx for sharing yourself 🙂

  3. True but to qualify for the crown, we have to pick up our crosses and follow Him. No shortcuts allowed. I see that now.

  4. There is no testimony without a test.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
