I didn’t write it, think it, or say it but I sure do like it and want to remember it…
The man/woman that loves to voice the things he/she has given up for God, has yet to fully and truly count those things as rubbish for the sake of knowing Jesus.
Beware of anyone who sacrifices Isaac in public. For these are private matters between the heart of God and the heart of man. (hard one!)
Good Word from Barbara Yoder — Why are you waiting for someone to give you a position? Go out and do the works of Jesus. Feed the hungry, care for the ophans and widows, heal the sick, help people, release the kingdom everywhere you go. Don’t wait for someone to notice you, your gift will make room for you. Until you release it, there will be no room. You create the room. 2/11/2010
In His presence the things that seemed big to us become so insignificant. We wonder why we let the devil fight us over that thing, make it so important, and magnify it so much. When we’re in God’s presence, the things we think are so insignificant become big. He shows us His true concerns. – Ruth Ward Heflin 10/18/2009
SAFETY is the greatest risk of all…because safety leaves no room for miracles…MIRACLES are the ONLY sure thing in life!!!! 10/18/2009 Pastor Sammy quote during sermon
When you are worshiping you look into His face, and you are changed from glory to glory. We become like that which we worship. We become like Him Whom we worship. Ruth Ward Heflin
A fellow facebooker wrote this on Reinhard Bonnke’s wall and I love it: What caused John Wesley to rise daily at 4:00 a.m. to pray and then go out in the fields to preach Christ to the dying multitudes? What caused him to preach the gospel even when churches barred their doors to him and crowds hurled rotten vegetables in his face? John Wesley had a passion for souls.
What caused David Brainard, though racked with tuberculosis, to weep in prayer for lost Indians in early America until the snowy ground was stained with his own blood? He had a passion for souls.
What caused John Knox, who led his whole nation to Christ, to rise in the middle of the night and cry, “Give me Scotland or I die!” John Knox had a passion for souls.
The very reason Jesus shed His own blood was for lost souls. It is the reason why He cried out,” My God, my God, Why have you forsaken Me?” If we lose this I believe we lose our purpose. May God the Holy Spirit give us a passion for the lost. I can’t wait for the day that I am completely set ablaze!
and I, Melissa Flood, say to that ” ME TOO DYLAN”
Steve Chase wrote on his status “One of the costs you must consider in following Jesus Christ…you don’t get to choose what that cost will be.”
Following God’s will for our life is a pattern of hearing God, doing what He says, and then waiting to hear God again, and then doing what He says, and then waiting to hear God…”
The pursuit of revival, before the fire or the extreme presence of God is there, before the weighty grace of God is upon us, will require us to change. If we want to experience revival, we must do now what we’ll be doing then. Change comes before the fire is lit.
