by a desire to appear better than we really are.

- E. Stanley Jones

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

This means that co-operation equals committment.
- E. Stanley Jones

Whatever our creed, we stand with admiration before
the sublime character of Jesus.
- E. Stanley Jones

We are personalities in the making, limited,

- E. Stanley Jones

When the depths are upheld by the Holy Spirit,
then the reaction is Christian.
- E. Stanley Jones

Character is supreme in life, hence Jesus stood supreme in the supreme thing -
so supreme that,
when we think of the ideal, we do not add virtue to virtue,
but think of Jesus Christ, so that the standard of
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

The action carries a sense of incompleteness and frustration,
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

If the Holy Spirit can take over the subconscious with
our consent and cooperation,
then we have almighty Power working at the basis of our lives,
then we can do anything we ought to do,
go anywhere we ought to go, and be anything we ought to be.
- E. Stanley Jones

first,
upon the richness of the self that was given;
and second,
upon the depths of the giving.
Friend and foe alike are agreed on the question of
the character of Jesus Christ.
- E. Stanley Jones

You cease to move into yourself, away from others.
You give up your antagonism.
You begin to move toward others in love.
God moved toward you in gracious, outgoing love,
and you move toward others in that same outgoing love.
- 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

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

Prayer is commission.
Out of the quietness with God, power is generated that
turns the spiritual machinery of the world.
When you pray, you begin to feel the sense of being sent,
that the divine compulsion is upon you.
- E. Stanley Jones

through heredity.
Your parents can give you much, but they cannot give you this.
- E. Stanley Jones

is the basic fact of conversion.
That altered relationship with God gives you an altered
relationship with yourself,
with your brother man, with nature, with the universe.
- E. Stanley Jones
