Leave me out of the limelight…and just let my life speak.
“Don’t think of prayer as an impersonal requirement. Realize that it is a person, the Lord Jesus Christ, with all authority and with all love, who expects us to pray.” ~ Donald S. Whitney
“In this world, Christians will always live with an affinity for sin that will say, ‘If I have to serve, I want to get something for it. If I can be rewarded, or gain a […]
“Jesus never uttered opinions. He never guessed…He knew, and He knows. His words are not as Solomon’s were, the sum of sound wisdom or the results of keen observation. He spoke out of the fulness […]
“There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being involved in your local church…but God didn’t create the universe and then retire into full-time churchwork. God is not just interested in being Lord of the church…He’s interested in […]

"Many people today, some well-intentioned and some not so much, are doing their best to soft-pedal the gospel in order to widen its appeal. But in reality, they're doing the exact opposite. When we make following Jesus a tag line, or view it as just something we add on to our lives without sacrificing anything, we are actually diminishing the value of the gospel. We do the gospel an injustice when we don't call people to sacrifice and give their entire lives to Jesus, because in doing so, what we're really saying is that following Jesus is not really all that important."~ Leighton Flowers
