“The people that make a durable difference in this world are not the people that mastered many things, but who have been mastered by one great thing. If you want your life to count, if you want the ripple effect of the pebbles you drop to become waves that reach the ends of the earth and roll into eternity, you don’t need a high IQ. You don’t have to have good looks or riches or come from a fine family or a fine school. Instead you have to know a few, great, unchanging, obvious, simple, glorious things - or one great embracing thing - and be set on fire by them.” —John Piper.
“What is freedom? Freedom is being so in love with Christ that you do exactly what you want to do, and it accords with His will.” —John Piper (via immerse-myself)
I hear too many females say, "I just want a guy that will love me for me and love me forever." I got a great guy for you, his name is Jesus Christ. He's the king of romance. The definition of love. The perfect husband.
“In modern day evangelism, this precious doctrine [of regeneration] has been reduced to nothing more than a human decision to raise one’s hand, walk an aisle, or pray a “sinner’s prayer.” As a result, the majority of Americans believe that they’ve been “born again” (i.e., regenerated) even though their thoughts, words, and deeds are a continual contradiction to the nature and will of God.” —Paul Washer (via martelthechristianrapper)
