"Our lives begin to end
the day we become silent
about the things that
matter." Martin Luther King
"If you do not stand firm in your faith you
will not stand at all' Isaiah 7:9
..."in the last days there will be very
difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will
be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and
ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and
unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control; they will be
cruel and have no interest in what is good. They will betray their friends, be
reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will
act as if they are religious, but they will reject the power that could make
them godly. You must stay away from people like that."
2 Tim. 3:1-5
"Preach the word
of God. Be persistent, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct,
rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. For a time is coming
when people will no longer listen to right teaching. They will follow their own
desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever they want to
hear. They will reject the truth and follow strange myths."
2 Tim. 4:2-4
can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he
will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon"
"How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow
1 Kings 18:20
"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting
the one who called you by the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel
which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into
confusion and are trying to pervert the Gospel of Christ. But even if we or an
angel from heaven should preach a Gospel other than the one we preached to you,
let him be eternally condemned!" Galatians 1:6-8
"And why do you break
the commandment of God
for the sake of your tradition?"
Jesus Christ, Matthew 15:3
". . .if you are arguing
with God, you are permitted, but you are
wasting your time. You are not wasting His time, but you are wasting
your time!" -- The Most Rev.Henry Luke Orombi, Archbishop, Uganda
"Partial obedience is still disobedience."
Dr. Charles Stanley
"The world is the world and the Church is the Church,
and yet the Word of God must go forth from the Church into all the world,
proclaiming that the earth is the Lord's and all that therein is."
"The Church is not only the community of the redeemed,
it is also the redeeming community. We are both commanded by our Lord and
impelled by the indwelling Holy Spirit to declare the message of God's redeeming
love in Jesus Christ to all peoples."
Dr. Edward Murphy
"... how are they to believe in him of whom they
have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how
are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are
the feet of those who preach the good news!"
Romans 10:14-15 KJV
"Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words
if necessary." Martin Luther
is neither to convert people, nor to win them, nor to bring them to
Christ, though this is indeed the first goal of evangelism.
Evangelism is to preach the Gospel."
John R. W. Stott
essentially giving what we have received, and you cannot give what you
do not have. We must listen to God before we talk to men. We are only
the messengers who carry the message. A messenger, or a missionary, does
not have an importance of his own. His main and only importance is in
the fact that he delivers a message. The messenger may not be very
educated; he may not even be a man or woman of any significance in the
society; but, he's at the door to receive a message from the master and
to deliver it and also to receive a message from the people to deliver
it to the master. Messengers must be faithful, true, trustworthy and
loyal; but, when their job is done they are forgotten and they ought to
be. It is the message which is to be remembered.
' He must increase; but, I must decrease' John 3:13."
