Memorable Quotes:

"Though our context and culture have changed, the power of the gospel has not. The riches and the resources that God has given to all Christians are still the same."

"Our weakness and inadequacy are no hindrance to God working through us."

"If we expect little from the Lord, we will often get little. If we expect much, we will ask much, and often we will receive more than we asked or even imagined."

"Skeptics can tell if we are merely reciting a set of beliefs or if we have fallen in love with the One we are proclaiming."

"If God is willing to forgive us for the death of Christ, then is there any other sin we confess that could be more grievous than that? That is why we run to the cross, and call others to come with us - in freedom, even in joy, because though we are undeserving, God’s solution is so wonderful."

"There will always be something easier and more popular to do than share the gospel. But there will never be anything more necessary to do than share the gospel."
