Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe-Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E minor-loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Francis Chan (via littlethingsaboutgod)
Love is such an active process, and we are fairly lazy. So initiate. Then when you come together, initiate depth. Great conversations come from great questions and honest answers. Become someone who does both well. One of the ways I grow and experience God is over Mexican food with kindred friends talking about deep things. J.A (via mountainmusing)
If I profess, with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christianity. Where the battle rages the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battle-field besides is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point. Martin Luther
The Christian is to resist the spirit of the world. But when we say this, we must understand that the world-spirit does not always take the same form. So the Christian must resist the spirit of the world in the form it takes in his own generation. Francis Schaeffer
While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God’s creation.

No one has ever done anything significant by idly watching other people do significant things, especially when the people being watched don’t even exist. Jon Moore
