Thought Provokers for Sunday, May 18, John 14:1-14 (“I am the Way”)

way jesus the way

To all who wish to be rid of anxiety,
I would make three simple suggestions:
First, stop seeking the trivial, transient things…,
and seek the Kingdom of God as it is revealed in Christ.
Second, get your eyes off yourself;
focus them upon God first and others second.
Third, commit yourself fully to Christ.

Billy Graham

God designed the human machine to run on Himself.
He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn,
or the food our spirits were designed to feed on.
There isn’t any other.
That’s why it’s no good asking God to make us happy in our own way
without bothering about religion.

C.S. Lewis

Your poverty is greater than ours….
The spiritual poverty of the West is much greater
than the physical poverty of the East.
In the West, there are millions of people who suffer loneliness and emptiness, who feel unloved and unwanted.
They are not the hungry in the physical sense;
what is missing is a relationship with God and each other.

Mother Teresa

Almost all of us have had men or women cross our paths
who were obviously deeply and significantly walking with God.
Without pretense or ostentation they made an enormous impact upon us.
Through their character and conduct we got a new glimpse of God.
They walked in company with God’s gracious Spirit.
Just knowing them induced within our spirits
an intense, inner desire to know and walk with God in the same way.
Some of them God used to touch our lives and commune with us.

W. Philip Keller

We cannot avoid the dangers and the reefs of which this life is full,
without the real and constant help of God.
Let us ask him for it without ceasing.
But how can we ask him without being with him?
And how can we be with him without often thinking of him?
And how can we often think of him
without forming a holy habit of doing so?

Brother Lawrence
