Quoteables

Did you notice the occasionally changing “Quoteables” section on the right hand side of the homepage? Yep, this is about that.

In case you happened to like one and want to see it again, and so that I can remember which ones I’ve used so far, they are collected here for you reading enjoyment.

“Christianity shouldn’t be something we do with our life. Life should be something that we do completely differently because it is consumed by the fact that we’re a Christian.” ~ Jonathan Marshall

“Learning to appreciate someone else’s experience even when it has nothing to do with yours is an advanced level of caring we would do well to cultivate. Jesus learned to empathize with the sorrow of people at the tomb of Lazarus so much that he wept, even when he knew he was going to raise Lazarus from the dead. Only when we get beyond ourselves can we truly love.” ~ John Fischer

“There’s a wideness in God’s mercy
I can not find in my own
And it keeps a fire burning
To melt this heart of stone
Keeps me aching with a yearning
Keeps me glad to have been caught
In the reckless, raging fury
That they call the Love of God.”
~ Rich Mullins

“It’s easy to get a reputation for wisdom. It’s only necessary to live long, speak little and do less.” ~ Gabriel Dauntsey (From P.D. James’ novel “Original Sin” – Page 53)

“The moment God is figured out with nice neat lines and definitions, we are no longer dealing with God.” ~ Rob Bell, Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” ~ C.S. Lewis

“The surest indication of spiritual growth is the refusal to take delight in the faults or weaknesses of another.” ~ Jonathan Martin
