36 Christian Quotes

If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.

The way of Jesus cannot be imposed or mapped — it requires an active participation in following Jesus as he leads us through sometimes strange and unfamiliar territory, in circumstances that become clear only in the hesitations and questionings, in the pauses and reflections where we engage in prayerful conversation with one another and with him.

Eugene H. Peterson

[hr]

chr02

God loves human beings. God loves the world. Not an ideal human, but human beings as they are; not an ideal world, but the real world. What we find repulsive in their opposition to God, what we shrink back from with pain and hostility, namely, real human beings, the real world, this is for God the ground of unfathomable love.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Leo Tolstoy

[hr]

chr04

I mean that the reason God seems to act in ways that make no sense to us is that our perceptions are wrong. Our expectations are subtly twisted.

J.C. Ryle

[hr]

chr06

The more a nation gets into darkness, the more it’s going to hate the light. The more it’s going to run from the light. And we have a generation of people who have given themselves to darkness, and they’ve embraced atheism, because it gets them away from moral responsibility to God.

Ray Comfort

E.W. Kenyon

[hr]

Why would we want fame, when God promises us glory? Why would we be seeking the wealth of the world when the wealth of heaven is ours? Why would we run for a crown that will perish with time, when we’re called to win a crown that is imperishable?

Paul Washer

[hr]

chr08

The great tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer but unoffered prayer.

KB Meyer

[hr]

God’s revelation… unmasks our illusions about ourselves. It exposes our pride, our individualism, our self-centeredness – in short, our sin. But worship also offers forgiveness, healing, transformation, motivation, and courage to work in the world for God’s justice and peace – in short, salvation in its largest sense.

Marva J. Dawn
