Some of the greatest saints I've known have been those with physical infirmities. #Quote by Billy Graham
Christian Discipleship quotes by Robin M. Bertram
#10. Run your race. It's the only one that will count in eternity. #Quote by Robin M. Bertram
Christian Discipleship quotes by Scot McKnight
#11. We need to shed our unearthly and nonsocial and idealistic and romantic and uber-spiritual visions of kingdom and get back to what Jesus meant. By kingdom, Jesus means: God's Dream Society on earth, spreading out from the land of Israel to encompass the whole world. #Quote by Scot McKnight
Christian Discipleship quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#12. Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Christian Discipleship quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#13. Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession ... Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Christian Discipleship quotes by John Stott
#14. Without the Holy Spirit, Christian discipleship would be inconceivable, even impossible. There can be no life without the life-giver, no understanding without the Spirit of truth, no fellowship without the unity of the Spirit, no Christlikeness of character apart from His fruit, and no effective witness without His power. As a body without breath is a corpse, so the church without the Spirit is dead. #Quote by John Stott
Christian Discipleship quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#15. Christian discipleship is a decision to walk in his ways, steadily and firmly, and then finding that the way integrates all our interests, passions, and gifts, our human needs and eternal aspirations. It is the way of life we were created for. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson

#19. This generation must get deadly serious about the problem of Biblical illiteracy. #Quote by Albert Mohler
Christian Discipleship quotes by Charles Colson
#20. Christians need to take the lead in educating people that children are gifts, as my autistic grandson most surely is. By going down the path we're currently on, we might one day get rid of genetic diseases, but only at the cost of our own humanity. #Quote by Charles Colson

#21. The Lord is our mighty shield.

#23. If we look into the matter of how Christian theology rose in the beginning, the Christian Church was always already earlier, and thus even now for each individual the Christian Church is earlier than theology. #Quote by Friedrich Schleiermacher
Christian Discipleship quotes by Brian Doyle
#24. There is a wonderful simple human reality to Christ's hunger. The man is famished. He's missed meals for three days, He has a lot on his mind, He's on His way back to heaven, but before He goes He is itching for a nice piece of broiled fish and a little bread on the side with the men and women He loves. Do we not like Him the more for His prandial persistance? And think for a moment about the holiness of our own food, and the ways that cooking and sharing a meal can be forms of love and prayer. And realize again that the Eucharist at the heart of stubborn Catholicism is the breakfast that Christ prepares for Catholics, every morning, as we return from fishing in vast dreamy seas? #Quote by Brian Doyle
Christian Discipleship quotes by Christian Hunt
#25. Rationale still remains the greatest impediment to encountering God's mysteries. #Quote by Christian Hunt
Christian Discipleship quotes by Henry Cloud
#26. Couples often live out years of falsehood trying to protect and save a relationship, all the while destroying any chance of real relationship. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Christian Discipleship quotes by Cindy Woodsmall
#27. Facing our fears, skeletons, and mistakes is paramount in finding ourselves-in living with ourselves. Once it's done, that fear will be laid to rest, and she'll be stronger for having dealt with it and have more peace becausse she's not carrying the weight of that fear every day and night. #Quote by Cindy Woodsmall
Christian Discipleship quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#28. Islam is at once the most and the least interesting of the world's monotheisms. It builds upon its primitive Jewish and Christian predecessors, selecting a chunk here and a shard there, and thus if these fall, it partly falls also. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Christian Discipleship quotes by Kenneth W. Osbeck
#29. Christians have long realized that the whispered name "Jesus" can bring comfort and cheer to someone suffering or bereaved, and it can bring joyful hope to the fearful or depressed heart. #Quote by Kenneth W. Osbeck
Christian Discipleship quotes by Christian Fennesz

Christian Discipleship quotes by Pope John Paul II
#32. Christian holiness does not being sinless, but rather it means struggling not to give in and always getting up after every fall. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Christian Discipleship quotes by William Bennett
#33. The new source of divisiveness is the assault of secularism on religion. #Quote by William Bennett
Christian Discipleship quotes by Debi Pryde
#34. If we will be free indeed from the power of sinful anger, we must make a deliberate choice to continue learning and obeying God's Word; for it contains God's truth, which is our road map that leads to freedom from enslaving sin. Apart from the Word of God, we cannot and we will not grow or survive spiritually. Virtually every success in the Christian life can be traced back to knowing the Word of God; for it is the foundation on which every doctrine, every blessing, and every Christian discipline is established. #Quote by Debi Pryde
Christian Discipleship quotes by Gore Vidal
#35. Which other major religion is based on the Godhead incarnate being whipped, tacked to a cross, stabbed? Only the Marquis de Sade could have made up a sicker religion. It's no wonder that those brought up in such a culture hate life and enjoy inflicting pain. All societies are sick but some are sicker than others. Christian societies are certainly the sickest. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Christian Discipleship quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#36. To trifle with Scripture is to deprive yourself of its aid. Reverence it, and look up to God with devout gratitude for having given it to you. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Christian Discipleship quotes by John Piper
#37. Worship is an inward feeling and outward action that reflects the worth of God. #Quote by John Piper
Christian Discipleship quotes by Moliere
#38. And knowing money is a root of evil, in Christian charity, he'd take away whatever things may hinder your salvation. #Quote by Moliere
Christian Discipleship quotes by Billy Graham

Christian Discipleship quotes by Chapman Cohen
#42. The worst that one can say of the Christian clergyman today is that he actually believes what he teaches. #Quote by Chapman Cohen
Christian Discipleship quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#43. For the Christian, the Bible, the Holy Spirit, guidance from trusted leaders and a revelation from your growing personal relationship with God go a long way to provide guidance. Learn to distinguish between spiritual blackmail and Godly Bible-based advice or warnings. Study your religion or belief and know it for yourself, heavy reliance on a third party for prolonged periods will sometimes open you up to possible abuse. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Christian Discipleship quotes by Saint Augustine
#44. Our Lord reserved to Himself certain things which He would do in due time in a manner outside the course and order of nature, so that they would wonder and be astonished at seeing not great but unusual things, who are unmoved by things daily seen. For the government of the world is a greater miracle than feeding five thousand men from five loaves; yet at the former no one wonders, the latter astonishes all men: not as a greater wonder, but as a rarer. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Christian Discipleship quotes by Eric Ludy
#45. I won't give my heart to another girl until God shows me it's my wife. #Quote by Eric Ludy
Christian Discipleship quotes by Craig D Lounsbrough
#46. It is my passion to rise to great heights, but instead I dig holes where I plummet to great depths. And when will I learn that God trades shovels for wings? #Quote by Craig D Lounsbrough
Christian Discipleship quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#47. Drama usually bases itself on the bedrock of original sin, whether the writer thinks in theological terms or not. Then, too, any character in a serious novel is supposed to carry a burden of meaning larger than himself. The novelist doesn't write about people in a vacuum; he writes about people in a world where something is obviously lacking, where there is the general mystery of incompleteness and the particular tragedy of our own times to be demonstrated, and the novelist tries to give you, within the form of the book, a total experience of human nature at any time.

For this reason, the greatest dramas naturally involve the salvation or loss of the soul. Where there is no belief in the soul, there is very little drama. The Christian novelist is distinguished from his pagan colleagues by recognizing sin as sin. According to his heritage, he sees it not as a sickness or an accident of the environment, but as a responsible choice of offense against God which involves his eternal future. Either one is serious about salvation or one is not. And it is well to realize that the maximum amount of seriousness admits the maximum amount of comedy.

Only if we are secure in our beliefs can we see the comical side of the universe. One reason a great deal of our contemporary fictions is humorless is because so many of these writers are relativists and have to be continually justifying the actions of their characters on a sliding scale of values. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
