Rick Warren
– Never engage those who insult you online. They’re just looking for a fight, not clarity.
– Jealousy is caused by selfishness, not love.
– Whenever I think I understand it all, I realize I haven’t been listening.

A W Tozer
I accomplish more when I rest wholly in the labor of Jesus than I do when I frantically try to do the work for Him.

J.C. Ryle
You are never a loser with Christ.

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
– Music styles are languages. It takes all kinds of languages to communicate God’s love to all kinds of people.
– Authenicity is NOT a style of music. What makes music authentic is the character of the musician playing it.
– Churches have a million times more local connections around the world than any news agency or govt. could dream of having.
– Street vendors know a brand LABEL doesn’t guarantee an item is genuine. It’s also true for those claiming to be Christians.

J.C. Ryle
Knowledge of the Bible never comes by intuition. It can only be obtained by diligent, regular, daily, attentive, wakeful reading.

C. S. Lewis
– No creature that deserved Redemption would need to be redeemed.
– You and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness.

Oswald Chambers
The characteristic of a disciple is not that he does good things, but that he is good in his motives.

Rick Warren
– A lie can travel around the globe before the truth puts on its shoes.
– Refusing to even LISTEN to another view because you KNOW you’re right reveals pride and your deep fear that you MIGHT be wrong.
– Having counseled 1000s of people as a pastor I’ve observed that the first 100 years of life are the toughest.

Oswald Chambers
Sanctification is an impartation, not an imitation.

Leonard Ravenhill
The only vision many of you have is television.

Charles Spurgeon
Humility is the proper estimate of oneself.
