Knowing God

“Thus says the Lord: ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.’ “
– Jeremiah 9:23-24

 

“I want to know God as he truly is…and make him known…to you. I don’t want to know God as I want to know him, as my imagination conceives him. I don’t want to know him as others say they know him. I want to know God as he is. For myself. …as his friend.”

– Anne Graham Lotz

Purpose Living

“And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus… rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen me… to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ “
– Acts 26:15-18

 

“But whatever you do, find the God-centered Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated passion of your life, and find your way to say it and live it and die for it. And you will make a difference that lasts. You will not waste your life.”
– John Piper

“Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.”
– Dr. Robert H. Schuller
