GREAT QUOTES for THIS MOMENT

“It is of no use for any of you to try to be soul-winners if you are
not bearing fruit in your own lives. How can you serve the Lord with
your lips if you do not serve Him with your lives? How can you
preach His gospel with your tongues, when with hands, feet, and
heart you are preaching the devil’s gospel, and setting up an
antichrist by your practical unholiness?”
– Charles Spurgeon

“Jesus´ decree to love and pray for our opponents is regarded as
one of the most breathtaking and gut-wrenching challenges of his
entire Sermon on the Mount, a speech renowned for its outrageous
claims. There was no record of any other spiritual leader ever
having articulated such a clear-cut, unambiguous command for
people to express compassion to those who are actively working
against their best interests.”
-Lee Strobel

“The fruit of the Spirit is not push, drive, climb, grasp and trample.
Life is more than a climb to the top of the heap.”
– Richard J. Foster

“The world is full of men who want to be right when actually the
secret of a man´s strength and his pathway to true honour is his
ability to admit fault when he has failed. God wants to fill the
church with men who can say they are wrong when they are wrong.
A man who is willing to humble himself before God and his family
and say, “I was wrong.” will find that his family has all the
confidence in the world in him and will much more readily follow
him. If he stubbornly refuses to repent or admit he was wrong,
their confidence in him and in his leadership erodes.”
-Jim Anderson

“Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control. To these I commit my day.”
-Max Lucado

“Again and again the Sermon on the Mount calls and challenges
us to a life of radical discipleship. Note: when Jesus says ‘Blessed
are the. . . merciful, peacemakers’, and so on, he doesn’t just
mean that they themselves are blessed. He means that the
blessing of God’s kingdom works precisely through those people
into the wider world. That is how God’s kingdom comes. That’s
one thing to hear afresh.”
-N. T. Wright

“When the root is bitterness, imagine what the fruit might be.”
– Woodrow Kroll
