“We Christians are really good at getting our message to the people who already have it…but pretty bad at times getting our message to the people who really need it.” ~ Phil Vischer
“Since God knows our future, our personalities, and our capacity to listen, He isn’t ever going to say more to us than we can deal with at the moment.” ~ Charles Stanley
“You never hear Jesus say in Pilate’s judgment hall one word that would let you imagine that He was sorry that He had undertaken so costly a sacrifice for us. When His hands are pierced, when He is parched with fever, His tongue dried up like a shard of pottery, when His whole body is […]
“God doesn’t dangle growth in grace before you like a spiritual lure that’s always enticing but never enjoyed. He promises thru His word that actual progress in godliness is possible.” ~ Donald S. Whitney
“Let me insert a word here to correct some possible misunderstandings. The disciplined use of time should not be understood as promoting a relentless, unresting, burnout-prone lifestyle. Though Jesus often ministered long hours and frequently under conditions that produced great demands on Him, nevertheless He was a man who rested, relaxed (after all, He walked […]
“God doesn’t want you to give with a grudge—that is, you give but you’d rather not. He takes no pleasure in gifts presented resentfully, regardless of the amount involved. God is not a celestial landlord tapping a greedy, outstretched palm, demanding His due, having no concern for how you feel about it. God doesn’t want […]
“Why does it matter that you make sure that you have a life that brings honour to God? Because if your life isn’t bringing glory to God, your ministry never will! Do you want to have a ministry that glorifies God? Good! Then make sure that your life is doing the same!” ~ Tim […]
“I tell the world all the time…I was a gangster before I met Jesus. Now I’m a redeemed sinner with gangster proclivities. I say that everyday. Why? Because it’s REAL. It’s not just a matter of repeating the words…it’s about reminding myself of what Jesus has done for me, and being thankful for what my […]
“If you want impact, you have to go for intimacy. The single most determining factor in how impactful I have been in ministry for Jesus has to do with how intimate I have been with Jesus himself.” ~ Tim Hawkins
“Oh—if there’s one thing us youth pastors and leaders need to work on…to work hard at, to work relentlessly at…it is to guard our hearts. Because the work that God is doing in us is more important than the work he is doing through us. If you want to have a great ministry, then before […]
“If it was God’s desire to provide us with an accurate and reliable account of the life of Jesus, an account we could trust and recognize as consistent with other forms of eyewitness testimony, God surely accomplished it with the four gospel accounts. Yes, the accounts are messy. They are filled with idiosyncrasies and personal […]
“I’m alarmed sometimes when I hear Christians make inaccurate statements related to the nature of evidence. When discussing evidence with skeptics, we don’t need to concede that a particular fact related to the Christian worldview is not a piece of evidence simply because it is not a piece of direct evidence. Even though a particular […]
“There are two kinds of people one can call reasonable. Those who serve God with all their heart because they know him… …and those who seek him with all their heart because they do not know him.” ~ Blaise Pascal
