Our Lord never lays down the conditions of discipleship as the conditions of salvation... Discipleship has an option with it - "If any man...."
~ Oswald Chambers
An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
~ M.K. Ghandi-
I simply argue that the cross should be raised at the centre of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church. I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves; on the town's garbage heap; at a crossroad, so cosmopolitan they had to write His title in Hebrew, Latin and Greek... at the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble. Because that is where He died. And that is what He died for. And that is what He died about. That is where church-men ought to be and what church-men ought to be about.
~ George MacLeod of Scotland (1895-1991)
God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible. What a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.
~ A. W. Tozer
"There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which everyone in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people except Christians ever imagine that they are guilty themselves.
The vice I am talking about is pride. Pride leads to every other vice; it is the complete anti-God state of mind... for pride is a spiritual cancer; it eats up the very possibility of love or contentment, or even common sense."
~ C.S. Lewis
"Humans are the only creatures that blush... or need to."
