The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting.
It has been found difficult; and left untried.

G.K. Chesterton

Salvation is free,
but discipleship costs everything we have.

Billy Graham

There can be no question but that Church membership has been made too cheap.
It has become largely a convention….
At present our churches draw and hold the settled
and cramp or repel the venturesome,
which is precisely the reverse of the New Testament Church.

Henry Sloane Coffin

Lord Jesus, how few souls there are who want to follow thee!
Everyone wants to reach thee in the end,
because they know that “at thy right hand are pleasures forever more.”
They want the happiness that thou canst give,
but not to imitate thee;
they want to reign with thee,
but not to suffer.
Even the carnal minded would like a holy death,
although they cannot stand a holy life.

Bernard of Clairvaux
* * * * * * * * * *

You will never know that Jesus is all you need
until Jesus is all you have got.

Mother Teresa
* * * * * * * * * *

The meaning of sacrifice is the deliberate giving of the best I have to God
that He may make it His and mine for ever:
if I cling to it, I lose it,
and so does God.

Oswald Chambers
