[featured_image]I have a lot of friends on Facebook. I enjoy reading the quotes that they post on their profile pages. I thought I’d share some of the ones that I’ve enjoyed reading recently.

“If is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” Jim Elliot (Deanne DeVries)

“God knows your dreams because He created your heart to hold them, to pursue them, and with His love and guidance, to achieve them.” (Doug DeVries)

“The things which matter most should never be at the mercy of the things which matter least.”Goethe (Kevin Stebbings)

“If any man come after me, let him deny himself, take up the cross daily and follow me.” Jesus Christ (Scott Kim)

“There are those who have a life they never live. They have come to Christ and thanked Him only for what He did, but do not live in the power of who He is. Between the Jesus who “was” and the Jesus who “will be” they live in a spiritual vacuum, trying with no little zeal to live for Christ a life that only He can live in and through them, perpetually begging for what in Him they already have!”Major Ian Thomas (Phil Peterson)

“If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change.” Giuseppe di Lampedusa (Keith Webb)

“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 (Lori Risse)

“Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” C.S. Lewis (Russ Johnson)

“Not all who wander are lost…” (Tara Malouf)

“You’re not free because you do what you want to do. You’re free when you do what you ought to do.” Rev. Joseph Lowery (Paul Krumpe)

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” (Nina Martinez)

“Courage is fear that has said its prayers.” Karl Barth, Swiss theologian (Dean Carlson)

“The illiterate of the future are not those that cannot read or write. They are those that cannot learn, unlearn, relearn.” Alvin Toffler (Jerel Skeith)

“Life is more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.” (Tiffany Mayes)

“There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.” Ronald Reagan (Greg Hubert)

“We face a humanity that is too precious to neglect. We know a remedy for the ills of the world too wonderful to withhold. We have a Christ too glorious to hide. We have an adventure that is too thrilling to miss.”Theodore Williams (Joey Springer)

Here are a few of my favorite quotes that I’ve posted on Facebook:

“As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” – Jesus (John 17:18)

“And we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ.” – Paul (Colossians 1:28)

“Every heart with Christ, a missionary; every heart without Christ, a mission field.” – Dick Hillis (Missionary to Asia, Founder of OC International)

“God’s church falters from exhaustion because Christians erroneously think that God has given them a mission to perform in the world. Rather, the God of mission has given his church to the world. It is not the church of God that has a mission in the world, but the God of mission who has a church in the world. The church’s involvement in mission is its privileged participation in the actions of the triune God.” – Tim Dearborn (Beyond Duty: A Passion for Christ, a Heart for Mission)
