"Sometimes, we're quick to dismiss constructive criticism because of who it's coming from. Whether we like it or not, there are times where our 'enemies' are actually RIGHT about us... ...and we need to be humble enough to admit that God can use someone who's against us for our good." ~ Skye Jethani
"My advice to the American church would be simply this: you don't have to be so scared. Sometimes you can lose legislative force and political force, and yet not lose the force of the gospel. Classical historians are still baffled at how the early church completely transformed the Roman Empire with no political or legislative power. Some would venture to say that it was miraculous."
"Jesus promised the disciples three things: that they would be courageous, absurdly happy...and in constant trouble." ~ G.K. Chesterton
