Quotes that Inspire Me!

 

“Everybody should love the Bible. Everybody should read the Bible. Everybody.”__Henry H. Halley (Halley’s Bible Handbook)

THE REST OF THE QUOTES ON THIS PAGE ARE FROM PEOPLE WHO, LIKE HALLEY, HAVE DEFINITELY READ THE BIBLE!

“I believe we are leaving the day of the ordained and ushering in the day of the ordinary. It is a time when common Christians will do uncommon deeds because God delights in using weak and foolish things to shame the world. Do not settle for a lesser life. If you start on this journey and set sail for deeper waters, you will come under attack. You will join the ranks of those that the enemy cannot ignore, and he will fight against you with unfair tactics.” __Neil Cole (Organic Church)

“Those who have the greatest measure of Christ and His riches to give are those who have suffered most, because in their suffering, that which was in the way of Christ has been removed; and all suffering is to that end.”__Theodore Austin-Sparks

“In the face of His coming, and in the face of His call on your life, to cling to this world and the things of this world—to pride one’s self on being someone, and having something in a planet usurping every right of its Creator—is spiritual treason.”__Kevin Turner (http://www.swi.org/blog/the-call-of-a-christian/)

“One of the real roadblocks to reaching God’s destination for us is to want to keep control of at least a little section of our lives so that we will not feel totally out of control. The truth is, however, that it is only when we ultimately relinquish control to God that we truly find the world around us making sense and life becoming more in control.”__James T. Martin (Immersed:God’s Desire for Our Lives) [Amen, Jim!]

“Our mission is to find and develop Christ followers rather than church members. There is a big difference in these two outcomes. The difference is seen in transformed lives that bring change to neighborhoods and nations. Simply gathering a group of people who subscribe to a common set of beliefs is not worthy of Jesus and the sacrifice He made for us.”__Neil Cole (http://www.cmaresources.org/organic-church-definition)

John Wesley’s Covenant Prayer:

I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee,
exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
thou art mine, and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
Amen.
