THE WORD OF GOD
"The Bible is God's chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you where the harbour is, and how to reach it without running on rocks and bars."
- Henry Ward Beecher
"Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again. Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.
Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified."
"I believe in prayer. It's the best way we have to draw strength from heaven."
- Josephine Baker
"Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed."
THE HOUSE OF GOD
"Church isn't a building. Church is who we are. Church is the human outworking of the person of Jesus Christ....lets be the Church!"
- Bridget Willard
"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever."
"Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike."
- Theodore Roosevelt
"My sheep recognize my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them real and eternal life. They are protected from the Destroyer for good. No one can steal them from out of my hand. The Father who put them under my care is so much greater than the Destroyer and Thief. No one could ever get them away from him. I and the Father are one heart and mind."
John 10:25 Message
"From an eternal perspective we only keep what we give away."
"But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on."
Mark 12:42-44 NIV
