I love the quotes about life and Christian living that I come across on facebook. They’re often positive. Usually encouraging. And sometimes challenging.
Today’s facebook Friday offers a few that we’ve seen recently. I hope you like ‘em.
Someone reminded us “We aren’t called to be like other Christians; we’re called to be like Christ.”
Then there’s this stinging assessment by the late British evangelist Smith Wigglesworth on a page dedicated to his quotes.
The reason the world is not seeing Jesus is that Christian people are not filled with Jesus. They are satisfied with attending meetings weekly, reading the Bible occasionally, and praying sometimes. It is an awful thing for me to see people who profess to be Christians lifeless, powerless, and in a place where their lives are so parallel to unbelievers’ lives that it is difficult to tell which place they are in, whether in the flesh or in the Spirit.
Wigglesworth died in 1947. I wonder what he would say today?
“Be kind to unkind people,” advised Peggy Templeton, “they need it the most.”
Lisa Victoria Davie reminds us: “Don’t settle for temporary pleasures. You’re worth more than a late night text & an uncommitted soul” (From Soul Whispers)
“When you allow the wrong people in your house,” posted and warned Darnell Strong, “stuff will come up missing like: Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Faith…Yes, people steal these things.”
“My scars tell a story,” wrote Yvette Roberts Love. “They are a reminder of times when life tried to break me, but failed.”
“What’s done is done. What’s gone is gone. One of life’s lessons is always moving on. It’s okay to look back and think of fond memories, but keep moving forward,” posted Myrna Rivera.
Posted by an unknown author: “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”
Finally, this important reminder from Erika Lynn. “Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.”
Have a great day!
