Rick Warren
– You’ll never understand yourself fully. But you can get to know Jesus who does understand you fully and still loves you.
– It’s stupid to assume we know the motivations of other’s hearts. We don’t know our own motivations most of the time.
– If you always give „a piece of your mind” to those who irritate you, you soon have none left. Be better.

A W Tozer
We can never know who or what we are till we know at least something of what God is.

Rick Warren
– Planting a church by attracting disgruntled believers is one of the stupidest ideas I’ve heard, for a dozen reasons.
– Pastor, you attract what you are. If you’re cranky, folks who love to argue and fight will fill the church. If you gossip, they will!
– Inventing a theology to justify my failure is sin. „People ruin themselves by their own stupid actions then blame God.” Pr. 19:3
– Pastor, God called you to feed and lead His sheep, not corral goats.

A W Tozer
– When I understand that everything happening to me is to make me more Christlike, it solves a great deal of anxiety.
– Nothing’s easier to talk about than surrendering ourselves and dying on the Cross; nothing’s harder than actually doing it.

J.C. Ryle
Holiness comes from Christ. It is the result of vital union with Him. It is the fruit of being a living branch of the true Vine.

C. S. Lewis
– You can’t really be so well-adjusted to your world if it ends by nailing you up to a stake of wood.
– Evil comes from the abuse of free will.

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
– He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God only.
– To ask that God’s love should be content with us as we are is to ask that God should cease to be God.

Rick Warren

– A great satisfaction has been accomplishing things for Christ that people said couldnt be done, then enjoying God’s smile.

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

– If someone’s grieving a loss, never say „I understand”. You don’t. „Each heart knows its own bitterness” Prov. 4:10

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.

Reinhard Bonnke
We prove the trustworthiness of the Bible by trusting it.

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

A W Tozer
If God gives you a watch, are you honoring Him more by asking Him what time it is or by simply consulting the watch?

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 selfish man quarrels against every principle, demanding his own way” (Pr. 18:1)

A crumpled check is still good money, if the signature is on it. So is a crumpled prayer, if Jesus name is really on it.

C. S. Lewis
When all the suns and nebulae have passed away, each one of you will still be alive.

Reinhard Bonnke
If we only believed what we saw, what would a blind man believe?

Rick Warren
– Church SIZE never determines SIGNIFICANCE! No air pilot thinks 15 passengers insignificant! You’ve been entrusted with lives!

A W Tozer
Christ’s atonement was so perfect & complete that it turns all that is against us into something that is for us.
