Some quotes to ponder on

 Many of us go through the Christian life without pausing to reflect  if all is well. I found some of these quotes that  will help us do just that. Spend a few moments and ponder a while with the Holy Spirit by your side. God loves YOU !
 
  • "...we are quick to rationalize our entertainment and priorities yet are slow to commit to serving God."— Francis Chan
  • "God is the only being who is good, and the standards are set by Him. Because God hates sin, He has to punish those guilty of sin. Maybe that's not an appealing standard. But to put it bluntly, when you get your own universe, you can make your own standards." — Francis Chan
  • "The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time" — Francis Chan 
  • "Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter."— Francis Chan 
  • "Has your relationship with God changed the way you live your life?"— Francis Chan
  • "Lukewarm people don't really want to be saved from their sin; they want only to be saved from the penalty of their sin."— Francis Chan 
  • "Are we in love with God or just His stuff?"— Francis Chan
  • "We don't get to decide who God is."— Francis Chan
" Draw near to God and he will draw near to you" James 4:8

Be Blessed.
