A W Tozer
When we make a choice today we are deciding who will we will be tomorrow.

John Piper
– First a Christian, then a Protestant, then a Calvinist, then a complementarian, then a credobapist, then a Baptist.
– Hemmingway born this day 1899. In 1961 he killed himself, as did his father, sister, brother. Strong writing. Such sorrows.

Rick Warren
– Nothing is small when God is a part of it.
– When people who SEEM so right about the Gospel are so wrong about their own character, they don’t really know the Gospel.
– The Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven has far more implications than just getting to heaven.

A W Tozer
The most dangerous trap is just living and forgetting that God exists.

D. A. Carson
It is a wretched bastardization of our goals when we want to win glory for ourselves instead of for Him.

C. S. Lewis

– You never get OVER grief; you get THRU it. Grief is God’s tool for transitioning thru life’s losses. Grief is healthy.

A W Tozer

We are sent to bless the world, but we are never told to compromise with it.

John Piper

Sin gives death its eternal horror; God gives life its eternal glory.

C. S. Lewis

– If God forgives us we must forgive ourselves otherwise it’s like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than Him .

– When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him.

– Everything except God has some natural superior; everything except unformed matter has some natural inferior.

– We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God.

The moment we glorify ourselves, since there is room for one glory only in the universe, we set ourselves up as rivals to the Most High.

Men give advice; God gives guidance.

Charles Spurgeon
When we deal seriously with our sins, God will deal gently with us.

Reinhard Bonnke

Bob Goff
Some call everything in life a test; but following Jesus seems more like writing a great book than just cramming for finals.

Bob Goff
Man has a longer list of what is required in faith than Jesus did; our list of what’s optional is probably longer too.

Rick Warren
The teacher is always silent when the test is given. If God is silent in your life right now, it is a test of faith.

Max Lucado
Dedicating your anxious thoughts to the brevity of life will not extend it by one minute. Worry accomplishes nothing.

A W Tozer
– If the Church says it but Scripture does not say it, I will reject it.
– Worship is no longer worship when it reflects the culture around us more than the Christ within us.

Max Lucado
The great news of the gospel is, yes, his grace is real, and so is our freedom.

Paul David Tripp
– You can’t hear him, but he’s wiser, can’t see him, but he’s more faithful, can’t touch him, but he’s nearer than whatever else you’d trust.
– You were hardwired to depend on God, so your dreams of self-reliance and self-sufficiency will prove to be more nightmare than dream.
– You can say goodbye to fear since grace covers not only what has been exposed and what lies in secret, but also what is yet to be known.

Brian Houston
Leaders goal: Live in the realization that small-spirited people react to small-spirited people. Be bigger than that!

Bob Goff
We’re the only species that can be divided by its opinions; we’re the only one that can be united around a Person.

Charles Spurgeon
– No one is so miserable as the poor person who maintains the appearance of wealth.
– Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.

Rick Warren
– The more someone depends on you for their identity, the more they’ll resent you after realizing you can’t meet all their needs.
– When you expect anyone to meet needs in your life that only God can meet, you set yourself up for huge disappointment.
– Your self-worth is largely based on what you think the most important person in your life thinks of you. Make Jesus that person.

A W Tozer
You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him

A W Tozer
The essence of surrender is getting out of God’s way so that He can do in us what He wants to do through us.

– It is God who works in and through us, if only we would let God do His work.

C. S. Lewis
A creature revolting against a creator is like the scent of a flower trying to destroy the flower.
