Things Other People Have Said That I Like:

The goal of humility is NOT to love oneself less, but rather to love others more. – Me

Anger is a divinely implanted emotion. Closely allied to our instinct for right, it is designed to be used for constructive spiritual purposes. The person who cannot feel anger at evil is a person who lacks enthusiasm for good. If you cannot hate wrong, it’s very questionable whether you really love righteousness. – Dr. David Seamands

“Refrain tonight and thou shalt lend a kind of easiness to the next abstinence, the next more easy. For use almost can change the stamp of nature, and either master the Devil, or throw him out with wondrous potency.” William Shakespeare, Hamlet

“I have found that happiness does not come from seeking it, but from seeking God. If you dedicate your life to being happy, it’s doubtful you ever will be. But if you focus instead on being holy—on being the person God has called you to be—you will find personal happiness as a byproduct of having your priorities in order.” – Greg Laurie

“The measure of his love for us increases still more when we consider our unworthiness. “Perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:7-8). We deserved divine punishment, not divine sacrifice.

I have heard it said, “God didn’t die for frogs.  So he was responding to our value as humans.” This turns grace on its head. We are worse off than frogs. They have not sinned. They have not rebelled and treated God with the contempt of being inconsequential in their lives. God did not have to die for frogs. They aren’t bad enough. We are. Our debt is so great, only a divine sacrifice could pay it.”- From the book “The PASSION OF JESUS CHRIST – Fifty Reasons Why He Came to Die” by John Piper

“Therefore sin is not small, because it is not against a small Sovereign. The seriousness of an insult rises with the dignity of the one insulted. The Creator of the universe is infinitely worthy of respect and admiration and loyalty. Therefore, failure to love him is not trivial—it is treason. It defames God and destroys human happiness.” – From the book “The PASSION OF JESUS CHRIST – Fifty Reasons Why He Came to Die” by John Piper

“If God were not just, there would be no demand for his Son to suffer and die. And if God were not loving, there would be no willingness for his Son to suffer and die.” – From the book “The PASSION OF JESUS CHRIST – Fifty Reasons Why He Came to Die” by John Piper

“…There are some weeds that will grow anywhere; and one of them is Pride. Pride will grow on a rock as well as in a garden. Pride will grow in the heart of a shoe-black as well as in the heart of an alderman. Pride will grow in the heart of a servant girl and equally as well in the heart of her mistress. And pride will grow in the pulpit. It is a weed that is dreadfully rampant. It needs cutting down every week, or else we should stand up to our knees in it. This pulpit is a shocking bad soil for pride!”
C.H. Spurgeon from “Preach the Gospel”

“If a person’s words say one thing, while their actions say another, always believe their actions – never believe their words.” – Author Unknown

“Never leave the scene of a decision without taking Action” – Anthony Robbins

“Many people, when going to church, think they are entering a bedroom with Jesus instead of entering a battlefield with Jesus.” – Dustin Smith (Worship Leader for World Revival Church)

“… to believe that YOU don’t have enough faith is accusing HIM of not supplying enough grace…”  Inspired of the Lord
