Compassion is not something that simply runs out of God, it is something that God is.

Yes, I believe you can be right with God and still not like the way some people behave. Our admonition is to love them in a larger and more comprehensive way because we are all one in Christ Jesus. This kind of love is indeed a Christian virtue!

We go astray when we attempt to do spiritual work without spiritual power.

Refuse to be average. Let your soul soar as high as it will.

To truly know God we must long for Him without any other motive than reaching God Himself.

Listen to no man who has not listened to God.

Walking in humility isn't focusing on what we are NOT; rather, it's declaring what God is.

If Jesus Christ isn't the central figure in our lives and in our churches, we're only fooling ourselves.

Christians should be the boldest people in the world-not cocky and sure of ourselves, but sure of Him.

I don't want the world to define God for me. I want the Holy Spirit to reveal God to me.

As long as we think we own anything, that thing owns us. As soon as we know that we own nothing, then God owns us.

To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.

Outside the will of God, there's nothing I want. Inside the will of God there's nothing I fear.

When God brings all things to light, you will discover just how significant you've been in God’s plan.

God doesn't work through us because we're flawless; rather, He works through us in spite of our imperfections.

The great test of faith is to wait on God. . .  not expecting to push a button and get whatever we want now.

The driver on the highway is safe not when He reads the signs, but when He obeys them.

God dwells in eternity but time dwells in God. He's already lived all our tomorrows as He's lived all our yesterdays.

We must do worldly jobs, but if we do them with sanctified minds, they become offerings to God.

The purpose of good works isn't to change us or save us; rather, it's the demonstration of the change within us.

If you never mention the Lord in conversation with each other,isn't that proof that you aren't so concerned about Him?

The essence of surrender is getting out of God's way so that He can do in us what He also wants to do through us.

Don't allow false modesty,doubts or unbelief prevent you from accepting God's favor. The door of mercy stands wide open.
