Worthy Sayings of Great Christians

God never forces a person's will into surrender, and He never begs. He patiently waits until that person willingly yields to Him. True surrender is a matter of being united together with Jesus in the likeness of His death (Romans 6:5) until nothing even appeals to us that did not appeal to Him. And after we surrender - then what? Our entire life should be characterized by an eagerness to maintain unbroken fellowship and oneness with God.

The Holy Spirit leads you, but He never drives you.

Among the plastic saints of our time, Jesus has to do all the dying and all we want is to... hear another sermon about His dying. We want to be saved but we insist that Christ do all the dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the little kingdom of Mansoul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Caesar; but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility.

The Christian's faith is ultimately not only a matter of doctrine or understanding or of intellect, it is a condition of the heart.

Once a man was asked, "What did you gain by regularly praying to God?" The man replied, "nothing... but let me tell you what I lost: anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity, and fear of death." Sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing; which ultimately is the gain.

Worry is pulling tomorrows clouds over today's sunshine.

You can't argue a person into heaven. You can't friend them into heaven either. You can only share the truth in love. God has to change their heart.

Death is just a change of address, but what you believe will determine what neighbor you end up with.
