Quotes from the Cloud #15

This year, I hope share weekly posts of quotes. These quotes are from authors I'm reading and enjoying from the Clouds of Witnesses Reading Challenge

For fellow participants, what I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see is for people to share quotes from what they're reading. I'd love for you to share quotes occasionally with your readers and let me know about it. If you don't have a blog, you could always leave quotes in the comments here.
Every time we say, “I believe in the Holy Spirit,” we mean that we believe there is a living God able and willing to enter human personality and change it. ~ J. B. Philips
“A wavering Christian is a Christian who trusts in the love of God one day and doubts it the next, and who is alternately happy or miserable accordingly . . . driven to and fro by every wind of doctrine. . . . You would suppose that even the most ignorant child of God would know without telling that this sort of experience is all wrong, and that to waver in one’s faith after such a fashion was one of the things most dishonoring to the Lord. . . . A wavering faith is not only disloyal to God, but it is a source of untold misery to ourselves and cannot in any way advance our spiritual interests.” ~ Hannah Whitall Smith on James 1:5
God pays in joy that is fireproof, famine-proof and devil-proof. ~ Billy Sunday
Indeed this is one of the greatest mysteries in the world—namely, that a righteousness that resides with a Person in heaven should justify me, a sinner on earth. ~ John Bunyan
