“The exclusive claim of the gospel – that Jesus is the only way – is often misconstrued. It’s mistakenly viewed as God favoring the Christian club over all the other religious clubs. But God does […]
“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
“You never hear Jesus say in Pilate’s judgment 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, […]
“Let me insert a word here to correct some possible misunderstandings. The disciplined use of time should not be understood as promoting a relentless, unresting, burnout-prone lifestyle. Though Jesus often ministered long hours and frequently […]
“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 […]

"Success seems to be the 'golden calf' of the American church. These days, we measure the success of a church by the 3 B's...buildings, bodies, and budget. When those 3 things reach a certain number, we equate that with a successful ministry. But if we measured Jesus' earthly ministry by that standard, He would be considered an epic failure. That should tell us something about our definition of success."~ J.R. Briggs
Love was compressed for all history in that lonely figure on the cross, who said that he could call down angels at any moment on a rescue mission...but chose not to – because of us. At Calvary, God accepted his own unbreakable terms of justice.~ Philip Yancey
"Much of Christianity now in America is really moralistic, therapeutic deism. We appeal to people with the idea of making your life better...that the goal of the gospel is to make you better, to make your marriage better, your finances better, your circle of friends better, and to make you more happy and fulfilled. But Jesus didn't come and die for any of those things...He died to save us from our sin. Those other things are simply potential fringe benefits."~ Christian Smith
"I believe one of the reasons why so many today are rejecting what Christians have to say is because they sense that a lot of Christian talk nowadays isn't authentic. We as believers today don't do a good enough job of thinking and listening before we speak. We are quick to tell people that 'Jesus is the answer' when we aren't even listening to the questions."~ Jason Thompson
