Quoteables

“Redemption is better than perfection.” – Samuel Rutherford
“Our task in the present…is to live as resurrection people in between Easter and the final day, with our Christian life, corporate and individual, in both worship and mission, as a sign of the first and a foretaste of the second.” – N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope
“The times when I feel nothing yet choose to believe in his heart and His love…. these undo the heart of the God of Heaven. On the days when every accusation lurks over my head and all the voices of condemnation join forces against me, my weak heart overcomes Him as I choose to believe what presently seems and absurdity… that God is for me and that my prayer, though weak, is wisdom. These are the days He holds precious. Oh how they move His heart.” – Dana Candler
“Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it.” –Professor Dumbledore, The Deathly Hallows
“There are three stages to every great work of God; first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.” — J. Hudson Taylor
“The more we look like Jesus the less we look like everyone else.” — Unknown
“I find that our wants qualify us for Christ.” — Samuel Rutherford
“One learns that the world, though made, is yet being made; that this is still the morning of creation; that mountains long conceived are now being born…”– John Muir, Travels in Alaska
“Out of whatever airt the wind blow, it will blow us on our Lord: no wind can blow our sails overboard, because Christ’s skill and the honour of his wisdom are empawned and laid down at the stake of the sea passengers, that he shall put them safe off his hand on the shore, in his Father’s known bounds, our native home ground.” — Samuel Rutherford
“The cure for boredom is curiosity.  There is no cure for curiosity.” — Dorothy Parker
“…God is so vastly wonderful, so utterly and completely delightful that he can, without anything other than Himself, meet and overflow the deepest demands of our total nature, mysterious and deep as that nature is.” — Frederick Faber
“The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the Church is famishing for want of His Presence.  The instant cure for most of our religious ills would be to enter the Presence in spiritual experience, to become suddenly aware that we are in God and God is in us.  This would lift us out of our pitiful narrowness and cause our hearts to become enlarged.  This would burn away the impurities from our lives as the bugs and fungi were burned away by the fire that dwelt in the [burning] bush.” — A.W. Tozer
“People your age are in such a hurry to go, go, go!  But you need to learn to value the waiting.  The time of waiting is when God reveals his character; it’s when the Word becomes flesh in you, the Word becomes incarnate in you.” — Sister Anna Mary of YWAM An Cuan
“My Master has riches beyond the count of arithmetic, the measurement of reason, the dream of imagination, or the eloquence of words.  They are unsearchable!  You may look, and study, and weigh, but Jesus is a greater Savior than you think him to be when your thoughts are at the greatest.  My Lord is more ready to pardon than you are to sin, more able to forgive than you are to transgress.  My Master is more willing to supply your wants than you are to confess them.  Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus.  When you put the crown on his head, you will only crown him with silver when he deserves gold.  My Master has riches of happiness to bestow upon you now.  He can make you lie down in green pastures, and lead you beside still waters.  There is no music like the music of his pipe, when he is the Shepherd and you are the sheep, and you lie down at his feet.  There is no love like his; neither earth nor heaven can match it.  To know Christ and to be found in him–oh! this is life, this is joy, this is marrow and fatness…My Master does not treat his servants churlishly; he gives to them as a king giveth to a kind; he gives them two heavens–a heaven below in serving him here, and a heaven above in delighting in him forever.  He will give you on the way to heaven all you need….The unsearchable riches of Christ!  This is the tune for the minstrels of earth, and the song for the harpers of heaven.  Lord, teach us more and more of Jesus, and we will tell out the good news to others.”
–C.H. Spurgeon
