Jeremiah the Prophet

"Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name, ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ (Jeremiah 33:2-3 ESV)

Guard jealously your relationship to God. Jesus prayed "that they may be one, even as we are one" - nothing between. Keep all the life perennially open to Jesus Christ, don't pretend with Him.

If you are seeking to obey the Lord, expect opposition. Expect obstacles. Expect difficulties. But, also expect God to see you through!

C.S. Lewis

There is someone that I love even though I don't approve of what he does. There is someone I accept though some of his thoughts and actions revolt me. There is someone I forgive though he hurts the people I love the most. That person is......me.

When problems come, we often look for the "quick fix." But the "quick fix" doesn't always work like we think it will. We must admit that God is the only One who can provide the permanent fix. So, trust Him to do what is best for your need!

The apostle Paul

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful" (1 Corinthians 13:4-5 ESV)

The Bible tells us to keep our focus on Jesus, the one who is the Author, as well as the Finisher, of our faith. Yet, our gaze is more often directed to those things that do not edify us with instructions or examples for godly living; nor encourage us to keep striving for conformity with Christ; nor to exhibit the single mindedness of Jesus who sought to show the glory of God to a sinful and lost world.

Ravi Zacharias

One of the most staggering truths of the Scriptures is to understand that we do not earn our way to heaven. ...works have a place—but as a demonstration of having received God's forgiveness, not as a badge of merit of having earned it.

Ravi Zacharias

Study hard. Understand not only the questions, but the questioner. Know how best to articulate the answers, but do it with humility, because ultimately the answer is in a person, the person of Christ, not in an argument. So, do your work and know how to present the answer, but do it with gentleness and meekness.

When your life is changed by Jesus, you are a new creature. God not only changes what you do, He also changes what you want to do.

Ravi Zacharias

Truth cannot be sacrificed at the altar of pretended tolerance. Real tolerance is deference to all ideas, not indifference to the truth.

Love is hard work. It is the hardest work I know of, work from which you are never entitled to take a vacation.

Ravi Zacharias

My longings, my hopes, my dreams, and my every effort has been to live for Him who rescued me, to study for Him who gave me this mind, to serve Him who fashioned my will, and to speak for Him who gave me a voice.

To allow God to be God we must follow Him for who He is and what He intends, and not for what we want and what we prefer.

Ravi Zacharias

All religions are not the same. All religions do not point to God. All religions do not say that all religions are the same. At the heart of every religion is an uncompromising commitment to a particular way of defining who God is or is not and accordingly, of defining life's purpose. Anyone who claims that all religions are the same betrays not only an ignorance of all religions but also a caricatured view of even the best-known ones. Every religion at its core is exclusive.
