Where are your wounds?

When we go before Him, God will ask, “Where are your wounds? And we will say, “I have no wounds.”
And God will ask, “Was there nothing worth fighting for?"

— Allan Boesak

8 Short Quotes from George Verwer (Operation Mobilisation)

"If only we could see the value of one soul like God does."

"Prayer can never be a substitute for obedience." 

"We who have Christ’s eternal life need to throw away our own lives." 

"Without Holy Spirit boldness, the world will remain unevangelized... there can never be a substitute for the power of the Spirit working through willing men and women, and that power will bring boldness."

"Without faith and love your Christianity will be a hollow thing, no matter what its intellectual credibility."

"A world-wide prayer movement must run parallel with any kind of world-wide mission movement."

"The truth is that most mission work is carried out where the church already exists... Only small percentages are working where the church is non-existent."

"God can use anyone who loves Jesus."

Free film "Billy: The Early Years" - The Story of Billy Graham

The story of Billy Graham is well known for millions of Christians. I found the film "Billy: The Early Years" from Internet. I watched it today and enjoyed a lot. As a young Christian Billy Graham was a man who inspired me a lot. And he still does.

The film portrays Billy Graham's life from the mid 1930s to the Los Angeles Crusade in 1949. It is told in the eys of Charles Templeton.

God uses broken things

God uses broken things.
It takes broken soil to produce a crop,
broken clouds to give rain,
broken grain to give bread,
broken bread to give strength.
It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume.
It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.

- Vance Havner

MESSAGE FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS

What wisdom would you share with today’s Christian ministry leaders?
The first is to ask yourself deep in your heart: “What am I made for? What is my cause? Why has God put me in this position?” If your role doesn’t move you deeply — bring you to tears in 30 seconds — either get passionate or get out of the way. You’re taking the place of somebody God has shaped to lead that ministry passionately.

Next, guard your heart. As a ministry leader there’s a bulls-eye target on you. If Satan can drop a leader, he can affect the faith, hope, and passion of many others. You’re in a spiritual battle, so walk closely with God. Listen to his whispers. I begin each day no matter where I am, no matter how busy I am, with an hour of listening and prayer. I don’t want God to one day say: “Wess, you were so passionate; you were doing so much on my behalf, that I couldn’t actually get your attention.” As a leader, if you aren’t madly in love with the Lord, and if prayer isn’t a significant part of your life, you need to set that right.

Then I would say fight for your family. Love your wife or husband. Love your children. The most loving thing you can do for your children is make them understand that they’re more important than ministry. I have two daughters. They know, and have known since they were tiny little girls, that while I care about the million children in Compassion, it’s the two of them that I love the most. I don’t want them to ever say to me, “You cared about all of them, but you forgot about us.” God doesn’t expect you to sacrifice your family for your calling.

Pour yourself into your calling. If it’s what God has called you to do, it deserves your best. Be the best authentic leader you can be.

(Excerpt from interview with Dr. Wess Stafford, president and CEO of Compassion International.)

10 Things You Never Hear in Church

10 Things You Never Hear in Church:

  1. Hey! It's my turn to sit in the front pew!
  2. I was so enthralled, I never noticed your sermon went 10 minutes over time.
  3. Personally I find witnessing much more enjoyable than golf.
  4. I've decided to give our church the $500 a month I used to send to TV evangelists.
  5. I volunteer to be the permanent teacher for the Junior High Sunday School class.
  6. Nothing inspires me and strengthens my commitment like our annual stewardship campaign!
  7. I love when we sing new hymns!
  8. Forget the denominational minimum salary. Let's pay our pastor so he can live as we do.
  9. Since we're all here, let's start the service early.
  10. Pastor, we'd like to send you to this seminar in the Bahamas.
