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.

Rick Warren
– Optimism is psychological; hope is theological. Optimism focuses on what you think you can do. Hope trusts in what God can do.
– Praise people publicly; Correct them privately. „Outdo one another in showing honor” Rom.12:10 ESV
– Doubts are meant to be doubted;Beliefs are meant to be believed.
– Ranting about the shallowness of other churches is often a unsubtle, prideful effort at self-promotion of one’s own ministry.
– To become WISE, invest more time listening and learning from people over 50 and under 5. Your age knows what you know.

A W Tozer

John Piper
This should help you decide how you use your time. “How much better to get wisdom than gold!” (Proverbs 16:16).

Oswald Chambers
…any effort to „hang on” to the least bit of our own power will only diminish the life of Jesus in us.

D. A. Carson
We will not grow in prayer unless we plan to pray. That means we must self-consciously set aside time to do nothing but pray.

Oswald Chambers
If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him.

C. S. Lewis
It’s a poor thing to come to Him as a last resort. If God were proud He would hardly have us on such terms: but He isn’t

Scott Williams
Fear is the prison where potential is confined.
