The Quotable Round-Up #16

Standard

In a recent article, 20 minutes of reading a book everyday makes a big difference in one’s life. If you don’t have the time to read why not include in your quite time. Instead of a devotional book, you can finish it with a book that can meet your spiritual need. A chapter will do. Currently I’m reading “God at Work” by Gene Edward Veith which has been profitable to me. I hope you will try it to and see the impact of it on your life. Lets continue the discussion next week on how to give 20 minutes of your daily time in reading and as promised your weekly dose of quotes:
“Everything, in all its exquisite and intricate details-things that others may consider trivial but are important to us-is governed by the overruling hand of God.”
–Derek W.H. Thomas
“Through highs and lows, better and worse, richer and poorer, sickness and health, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, when Christ becomes your all. A gospel-shaped life fills every space it takes with unconquerable faith and unfailing love.”
–Matt Chandler
“God wants us to offer ourselves to Him, turn from the ways of the world, and be transformed. Then we will have something, better than special revelations and words about the future-we’ll have wisdom.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“God’s Word is living and active. When we read the Bible, we hear from God with a confidence we find in no other book and from no other voice. We ca read the Scriptures knowing that this is what the Holy Spirit says.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“Wisdom is knowing God and doing as He commands. Foolishness, on the other hand, is turning from God and listening to yourself.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“God never assures us of health,success,or ease. But He promise something better: He promise to make us loving,pure,and humble like Christ.In short, God’s will is that you and I get happy and holy in Jesus.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“The most important issues for God are moral purity, theological fidelity, compassion, joy, our witness, faithfulness, hospitality, love, worship, and faith. These are His big concern. The problem is that we tend to focus most of our attention on everything else.”
— Kevin DeYoung
