I have “thought-provoking” quotes coming out of my ears.

Truth be told, it’s because I’ve been collecting them for some time now, and have only just got around to putting them together somehow. Let them “provoke” your thinking also!

“Over time, the number of visitors in our church services is directly proportionate to the level of enthusiasm felt by those who regularly attend.”
John Dickson

“I deliberately kept it plain and simple; first Jesus and who he is; then Jesus and what he did – Jesus crucified.”
1 Corinthians 2:2 (Message) 

“The life of the soul-saver is the grandest, merriest, strangest life that can be lived on earth.”
George Scott Railton

“The question is asked, should we receive honor? Did Jesus give it? Yes. Did He command us to give it? Yes. The question is asked, should we receive honor for what God has done through us? Did Jesus honor the centurion for his great faith? Yes. Was God the source of that faith? Yes. Enjoy the privilege, but give Him ALL the glory!”
Bill Johnson

“May the favour of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.”
Psalm 90:17

“Worship leadership is no more inherently spiritual than investment banking. Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.”
Phil Laeger

“The problem with ‘putting your best goot forward’: If it’s not immediately followed by your worst foot, you wind up immobilized in an awkward power stance.”
Nealson Munn 

“Apostles steer the boat. Pastors row the boat. Evangelists jump out of the boat. But prophets rock the boat.”
Steve Penny

“It is not scientific doubt, not atheism, not pantheism, not agnosticism, that in our day and in this land is likely to quench the light of the gospel. It is a proud, sensuous, selfish, luxurious, church-going, hollow-hearted prosperity.”
Frederic D. Huntington

“Everyday I set myself on fire and people come to watch me burn!”
Apparently *wrongly* attributed to John Wesley.

“Some people say preaching is over. I always say, only if you suck at it. Other than that it’s doing just fine.”
Mark Driscoll

“So much of worship is just not pretending.”
Phil Laeger

“No one on earth may even know your name, but Heaven records your victories.”
Bill Johnson

“Love the sinner, hate the sin.”
Sometimes attributed to Mahatma Ghandi, sometimes to Saint Augustine of Hippo.

“If you do not live in cosmic awe and mortal dread of your mysterious experience then you’re not doing it right…”
Anthony N Castle.

“I have always carried a penitent-form around in my heart, and whenever I feel the need I kneel there.”
Commissioner Samuel Logan Brengle

“Salvationists recognise that people can meet with God at any time and in any place. The mercy seat is a PLACE of grace, but is not the MEANS of grace. Flexibility and pragmatism are the keywords.”
(Major?) Nigel Bovey

“Maybe people can be divided into those who want to be asked what’s wrong by kind strangers, and those who don’t.”
Melissa Febos

“When I catch the first breath of the Spirit, I leave everything and everybody to be in His presence, to hear what He has to say to me.”
Smith Wigglesworth 

“Many Christians treat the Bible like a gun collector treats a gun. Holding it, studying it and admiring it, but never going to war and firing it!”
Mark Driscoll

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
