Raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair


Faith is not only a commitment to the promises of Christ; faith
is also a commitment to the demands of Christ.
- William Barclay

"Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair;
the rest is in the hands of God."
- George Washington

Decisions which are made in the light of God's |Word are stable
and show wisdom.
- Vonette Z. Bright

If ye keep watch over your hearts, and listen for the Voice of God
and learn of Him, in one short hour ye can learn more from
Him than ye could learn from Man in a thousand years.
- Johannes Tauler

The renewal of our natures is a work of great importance.
It is not to be done in a day. We have not only a new house to build up, but an old one to pull down.
- George Whitefield

If our faith is not relevant to our daily life in the world and in the parish, then it is no use; and if we cannot be Christians in our work, in the neighbourhood, in our political decisions,
then we had better stop being Christians. A piety reserved for Sundays is no message for this age.
- Douglas Rhymes

"Prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway!
Take out the stones, lift up a standard [banner] for the peoples!
Indeed the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the world:
"Say to the daughter of Zion,
'Surely your salvation is coming;
behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.'"
Isaiah 62:10

Lord God put me in contact with the right people
and always let me take the right decisions.
Give me insight, knowledge and wisdom, if you please.
