Quotations You Can Use (April 20, 2012)

“Pastor, pressures will come to tempt you to compromise in your personal life. Learn a lesson from Joseph. He stayed pure because he said, ‘No,’ from the very beginning. Be wise enough to do the same and do not begin to flirt with temptations that most surely will come your way. Stay pure in morals. Stay pure in mind. Stay pure in motive. Personal integrity is among your most valuable assets in ministry. Without it your keenest abilities will become your worst enemies. Make certain your personal life is a clear reflection of everything you preach from the pulpit and the blessing of the Lord will be up you”–O.S. Hawkins, The Pastor’s Primer, 251.

“. . . our resurrection bodies will be glorious, for they will actually resemble Christ’s own glorious body (Philippians 3:20, 21). We shall be like him! Consider for a moment the body of Christ: its effulgence, its beauty, its power. It was able to ascend straight into the sky, being carried up into heaven. . . .

The bodies in which we now live are weak from the cradle to the grave. But our resurrection bodies will be strong. We shall have eyes that never grow dim, ears that will never be in need of a hearing-aid, knees that will never grow feeble, hands that will never tremble. We shall run and not be weary; we shall walk and not faint”–William Hendriksen, The Bible on the Life Hereafter, 172-73.

    Quotes from two youth pastors:
    You may have to show your father respect because he is your father but you don’t have to listen to him.
    I don’t believe in sharing my testimony, it is personal.
    My job is to be a social activities director, not to witness.
    Your father is the best friend you will ever have. Everything he does concerning you is because he loves you.
    Honor God in everything you do.
    Take every opportunity to share God’s Love.

    Quote from a third:
    If only one goes, I will go on the mission too.
    I can’t go, I have a better job opportunity. You’ll have to go alone or not at all, unless you can find someone to go with you.

    Thank you for quotes that did not suggest “one has to go along to get along.”

    May His Light shine on, in and through you. May He Bless and Keep you. May the race be run and won in His Strength as it is promised, “My Strength is Sufficient.” AMEN

    “Chose this day Whom you will serve…”
