Friday Quotables That Speak To Me

The first quote was brought to light for me from Pastor Mike (on coffee) and is the best quote of the month....perhaps year....but something always stirs me from my self when I check out his blog. Thanks PM. I am inspired to look into that book. :)

"I hope you’ve met at least one Kingdom person in your life. They are surrendered people. You sense that life is OK at their core. They have given control to Another and are at peace. A Kingdom person lives for what matters, for life in its deepest sense. There’s a kind of gentle absolutism about their life-style, a kind of calm freedom. Kingdom people feel like grounded yet spacious people. Whatever they are after, they already seem to be enjoying it - and seeing it in unlikely places. Kingdom people make you want to be like them…. Kingdom people are anchored by their awareness of God’s love deep within."

Richard Rohr: Jesus’ Plan for a New World

It does not require any faith to dress up each week and sit in the same pew, nightclub, or bar, and dance your soul away. Imagine your last hour of living, what would you really say or do?

Be careful how you use the word, “heresy” its most often found in the accusing mouth of a pharisee.

When asked, “Where is the love, unity, power and miracles of the early church”. I reply, “Waiting in the early church for those willing to return.”

The true man of God doesn’t focus on winning the debate but on gaining the truth.

One must truly know God before its possible to blaspheme.

Lord, save me from those who believe they’re blessed with the knowledge of all truth and deliver me into the hands of those who still seek it.

"Communion is strength; solitude is weakness. Alone, the fine old beech yields to the blast and lies prone on the meadow. In the forest, supporting each other, the trees laugh at the hurricane. The sheep of Jesus flock together. The social element is the genius of Christianity."

Charles Spurgeon

Teach us to utter living words
Of truth which all may hear
The language all shall understand
When love speaks, loud and clear
Till every age and race and clime
Shall blend their creeds in one
And earth shall form one brotherhood
By whom Your will be done.

Henry H. Tweedy

God conceals himself from the mind of man, but reveals himself to his heart.

African Proverb
