Rick Warren
Happiness, like godliness, is a choice.You are as happy and as close to God as you choose to be.

A W Tozer
What good is our busy religion if we’ve lost majesty, reverence, worship – an awareness of the divine?

D. A. Carson
If it is hard to accept a rebuke, even a private one, it is harder still to administer one in loving humility.

John Piper
Say among the nations, ‘The LORD reigns!'” (Ps. 96:10)
Say it with tweets. Say it with blogs. With texting and with tongue.

 

InspiredSongs: Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)

Turn, Turn, Turn este compus de Pete Seeger în 1959, versurile sale fiind preluate din Eclesiastul, cu excepţia ultimului vers.
De aceea Pete Seeger a decis ca 45% din veniturile din acest cântec sa fie donate unei organizaţii israeliene, pentru că, spunea el, „am compus doar şase cuvinte” (în afară de muzică).
Cu toate acestea prima interpretare nu îi aparţinee lui, ci grupului The Limeliters, ce îl avea în componenţă pe Jim McGuinn (Roger McGuinn).
După câteva luni apare şi versiunea lui Pete Seeger, în 1962, pe albumul Bitter and Sweet.

Rick Warren
A careless word can ruin a life. „Speak ONLY what is HELPFUL TO OTHERS and meets THEIR needs,so it benefits THEM!” Eph.4:29

Many come short, being satisfied with the works of God rather than hungering for and reaching on to God Himself.

D. A. Carson
When you move from the Old Testament to the New Testament, you are not moving from a harder God to a softer God.

Rick Warren
– The more you rely on God, the more reliable you’ll realize He is.
– Music has the power to either remind us of our grief or relieve it.
– For most people, the best apologetic for the Gospel is to simply love them unconditionally.
– The world doesn’t need a new definition of Christianity; it needs a new DEMONSTRATION of it.

A W Tozer
– Justice is not something God has. Justice is something that God is.
– A worshiper can work with an eternal quality in his work but a worker who doesn’t worship is only piling up wood.

C. S. Lewis
There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes.

We don’t need to sacrifice our goodness to pursue greatness. Go for broke; aim for both.

A W Tozer
God, in no hurry whatsoever, painstakingly chips away, removing everything that isn’t part of the image of Christ.

Max Lucado
– God does not exist to make a big deal out of us. We exist to make a big deal out of Him.
– Just read a message from a friend that said: „May the Fourth be with you.” Groan. That joke has a one day shelf life- use it quickly.

God’s goodness is a fact, not just an idea. Our goodness is sometimes still an idea.

Reinhard Bonnke
The whole, simple Christian agenda is ‘OPERATION SAVE’. It is manpower armed with God’s power.

Rick Warren
Raising children is one of God’s primary ways to teach you unselfishness.

C. S. Lewis
If ambition means wanting to get ahead of others, then it’s bad. If it means wanting to do a thing well then it’s good.

A W Tozer
The result of diligence is a faith that is strong and willing to inherit the fulfillment of the promises of God.

Rick Warren
When you fail at any skill you’re trying to master, just keep practicing!
Every master was first a disaster.

A W Tozer
A sense of majesty has been lost, and along with this a sense of dignity has disappeared among mankind.

Oswald Chambers
A self-assured saint is of no value to God.

Reinhard Bonnke
The Gospel is a ladder to God, not a ladder to fame or social position.
Jesus came to seek and to save sinners.

D. A. Carson
Forgiveness is possible only because there has been a real offense, and a real sacrifice to offset that offense.

John Piper
This is a plea that we would open our eyes wide to the not-God for the sake of God.

C. S. Lewis
Once in our world, a Stable had something in it that was bigger than our whole world.

Max Lucado
Your pain has a purpose. Your problems, struggles, heartaches, and hassles cooperate toward one end: the glory of God.

Rick Warren
Don’t expect people to be interested in your vision if you’re not interested in their lives.

John Piper
It is sheer madness to believe in God and live a lie.

Max Lucado
God does not exist to answer our prayers. We exist to reflect His glory.

Bob Goff
„…and they picked up 12 baskets of what was left over.” Nothing God does is wasted.

C. S. Lewis
I believe there are too many practitioners in the church who are not believers.

God can use you. He restores the broken and brittle and parades them before the world as trophies of his love and strength.

Oswald Chambers
Beware of any work for God which enables you to evade concentration on Him.

Brian Houston
Leaders goal: Live honestly – Live openly – Live transparently – Live simply – Live quietly!

Bob Goff
Regret is usually just recycled fear. We get to fear not and move on.
