    "In God's eyes you are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are." — Max Lucado

          “I believe in Christianity even as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

                "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given." — The Prophet Isaiah

                Handel's Messiah

                "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this." (Isaiah 9: 6-7)

                This prophecy by Isaiah speaks of the advent of our Lord Jesus Christ which the earth witnessed some two thousand years ago, and of His second coming when He will establish peace and justice throughout the earth. That time approaches ever more quickly.

                'He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!' — St. John the Evangelist

                      "Suddenly I stopped and asked myself, when have I ever truly thanked God for the many blessings in my life? It was then that I realised something had to change. I would either have to reject Him outright, deny that He existed and never think upon Him again, or find out who He really was. How I thank Him that His grace led me to the latter, for now I could nor more imagine living without Him than I could living without breath in my lungs. For knowing God and being known by Him is quite simply the most beautiful experience this life affords." ― Br. Giacomo

                        “I indeed baptise you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” ― St. John

                                "You understand my thought afar off. Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall guide me, and your right hand shall hold me. For you formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with you." King David (Psalm 139)

                                    "To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless." Gilbert K. Chesterton

                                      “Now is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It won't last forever. We must take it or leave it.” ― CS Lewis

                                      "The small white chapel of St. Nicholas is the trademark of Rafina and is built at the place where an old Italian fort from the second World War stood. The view from St. Nicholas church is panoramic and you can see all the South Evoikos gulf from Marathon to Karistos. This was the chapel my father attended when he lived in Greece." Susan Abraham

                                          “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” ― St. Paul

                                            "Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important."

                                                "The resurrection of Jesus changes the face of death for all who love Him. Death is no longer a prison, but a passage into God’s presence. Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there." Clarence W. Hall

Though many choose to live without Him, it is absolutely certain they cannot afford to die without Him!" Charles Haddon Spurgeon
