"If you only focus on and talk about the love of God, then you only have half of the story. Yes, God is love, but He is also holy and hates sin. And when you take half of the truth, and try to make it all of the truth, that half of the truth becomes an untruth." ~ Adrian Rogers
"When the eternal mystery of God took on flesh and became incarnate in our world, it happened in the messiest way possible. God is not afraid of our mess. He does not wait for us to get our morals and values in order...He meets us right where we are. Ironically, it is God's acceptance of our moral imperfections that mysteriously gives us the power to live transformed lives. The apostle Paul said it like this in his letter to the Romans: 'God's kindness leads to repentance' ". ~ Tori Amos
  "You never hear Jesus say in Pilate's judgement hall one word that would let you imagine that He was sorry that He had undertaken so costly a sacrifice for us. When His hands are pierced, when He is parched with fever, His tongue dried up like a shard of pottery, when His whole body is dissolved into the dust of death, you never hear a groan or a shriek that looks like Jesus is going back on His commitment." ~ Charles Spurgeon
"A church in the land without the Spirit is rather a curse than a blessing. If you have not the Spirit of God, Christian worker, remember that you stand in somebody else's way; you are a fruitless tree standing where a fruitful tree might grow." ~ Charles Spurgeon
