Three means by which God assures us that we do have eternal life: 
1. The promises of His Word, 
2. The witness of the Spirit in our hearts, 
3. The transforming work of the Spirit in our lives.

John Piper
God promises spectacular blessings to those of you who remain single in Christ, and He gives you and extraordinary calling for your life. To be single in Christ is, therefore, not a falling short of God's best, but a path of Christ-exalting, covenant-keeping obedience that many are called to walk.

John Green
Sometimes people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them.

Karen Marie Moning
Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.

Mae West

Enter into the promises of God. It is your inheritance. You will do more in one year if you are really filled with the Holy Ghost than you could do in fifty years apart from Him.

Steve Maraboli
