|After I Believed | Mark P. Spinks||Experience|
I... was not completely satisfied that everything inside where I couldn't see it was just as God wanted it to be. I knew I had not done anything to displease my Lord, but I was also fairly certain that somehow He wanted something about me to be different than it was.

|How to Find the Christian Life | Charles E. Orr, 2013||Experience|
Our getting to heaven depends upon the life we live here. If I owned the whole world I would rather lose it all than to miss heaven. But, except we live the true Christian life, this beautiful happy, eternal heaven will never be ours.

|The Joy of the Lord | Albert B. Simpson, 1890||Experience|
His great salvation is inseparably linked with a rejoicing spirit. True, it can stoop to sorrow; it will enter the saddest home and the darkest midnight, but it cannot dwell with gloom. It must banish sorrow as well as sin, and live in the light of joy.

|Why I Rest All the Time | Richard J. Erickson, 2011||Experience|
"So then there remains a rest to the people of God. For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Therefore let us labor to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of unbelief."
