William Wilberforce

I have just finished reading an inspiring book about the life of William Wilberforce. The movie Amazing Grace was released a few years ago - this detailed his life and his great work in seeking justice for all human beings.

Here are a few quotes from Wilberforce:

“Of all things, guard against neglecting God in the secret place of prayer.”

"...when we think of eternity, and of the future consequences of all human conduct, what is there in this life that should make any man contradict the dictates of his conscience, the principles of justice, the laws of religion, and of God?”

“Let everyone regulate his conduct . . . by the golden rule of doing to others as in similar circumstances we would have them do to us, and the path of duty will be clear before him.”

When we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ, our lives can be a tribute to the living God. God seeks people who are willing to make a stand for His Kingdom principles.

Living in Grace,
