Famous Christian Quotes About Promises, Oaths, Vows
Waiting for the Promises of God
How blessed and wonderful are the gifts of God, beloved! Life in immortality, splendor in righteousness, truth with boldness, faith with confidence, self control in holiness; and all these things fall within our comprehension. Therefore what, then, are the things being prepared for those who wait? The Creator and Father of the ages, the all-holy one himself, knows their magnitude and beauty. Therefore let us strive to be found among the number of those who wait, so that we may have a share in the gifts which were promised.
Hidden in Plain Sight
The titles of God are virtually promises, when he is called a sun, a shield, a strong tower, a hiding-place, a portion. The titles of Christ—light of the world, bread of life, the way, truth, and life; the titles of the Spirit—the Spirit of truth, of holiness, of glory, of grace, and supplication, the sealing, witnessing Spirit; faith may conclude as much out of these as out of promises.
Belief Comes First, Then Sight
That which is promised is at once great and is not seen; and so faith is aroused by which we believe what we do not see, so that we may attain to see what we believe. Whoever derides this faith, so as to think that he is not to believe in what he does not see, when that shall come which he did not believe, he is put to shame.
