“Mom and dads, your teens don’t need more friends; they need a parent. They need a close relationship with someone who is determined to teach them how to survive in a world where responsibility is an essential character trait”–Mark Gregston, Tough Guys and Drama Queens: How Not to Get Blindsided by Your Child’s Teen Years, 35.
“The church did the most for the world when the church was the least like the world”–G. Campbell Morgan.
“Multitudes of people have come to a full knowledge of God because in a moment of complete hopelessness they prayed ‘The Atheist’s Prayer’ or something like it: ‘O God, if there is a God, save my soul if I have a soul.’ When that is the true cry of the heart, of the inmost spirit of the individual, who has no longer any hope other than God, God hears and responds without fail. It is as if he has a ‘heart monitor’ installed in every person. And when the heart truly reaches out to God as God, no longer looking to itself or others, he responds with the gift of ‘life from above.’ In fact, God is constantly looking for people who will worship him ‘in spirit and in truth’ “–Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart: Putting on the Character of Christ, 149.
“If any man is willing to do His will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from Myself”–John 7:17.
