Some have said that the power of a Redeemer would depend upon two things:

upon the depths of the giving.
Friend and foe alike are agreed on the question of
the character of Jesus Christ.
- E. Stanley Jones

To pass from estrangement from God to be a son of God

We, the total person, co-operate.
This means that co-operation equals committment.

- E. Stanley Jones

Character is supreme in life, hence Jesus stood supreme in the supreme thing -

human life is no longer a code but a character.
- E. Stanley Jones

Continuing a Lenten series on prayer:
Prayer is co-operation with God.
It is the purest exercise of the faculties God has given us -
an exercise that links these faculties with the Maker
to work out the intentions He had in mind in their creation.
- E. Stanley Jones

In conversion you are not attached primarily to an order,
nor to an institution, nor a movement,
nor a set of beliefs, nor a code of action -
you are attached primarily to a Person,
and secondarily to these other things.
- E. Stanley Jones

Our intentions may be very good, but,
because the intelligence is limited,
the action may turn out to be a mistake -
a mistake,
but not necessarily a sin, for sin comes out of a wrong intention.
- E. Stanley Jones

but not of guilt.
Victorious living does not mean perfect living in the
sense of living without flaw,
but it does mean adequate living, and that can be consistent with many mistakes.
- E. Stanley Jones

Victorious living does not mean freedom from temptation,
nor does it mean freedom from mistakes.
- E. Stanley Jones

Our actions are the results of our intentions and our intelligence.
- E. Stanley Jones

by a desire to appear better than we really are.

but think of Jesus Christ, so that the standard of
human life is no longer a code,
but a character.

the legacy instead of the small.
Now. Now I will live large, love boldly,
