Here are my top 10 favorite quotes about following Jesus and the Christian life:

  1. “Christian character cannot be formed without a kind of thinking that strains the soul.” (Richard Lints, The Fabric of Theology)
  2. “Your theology, your thoughts about God, are your most important thoughts because they will determine everything else in your life.” (Dr. Richard Bingham)
  3. “Theology without worship is empty, but worship without theology is blind.” (Kevin Vanhoozer)
  4. “Comparison is the kiss of death of gratitude.” (Pastor Michael Easley)
  5. “He loves Thee too little who loves anything together with Thee, which he loves not for Thy sake.” (Augustine, Confessions, Book 10, Chapter xxix)
  6. “Prayer is primarily a wartime walkie-talkie for the mission of the church as it advances against the powers of darkness and unbelief. It is not surprising that prayer malfunctions when we try to make it a domestic intercom to call upstairs for more comforts in the den.” (Pastor John Piper)
  7. “Christ is not valued at all, unless He is valued above all.” (Augustine)
  8. “Nothing is more important for mature Christian discipleship than a fresh, clear, true vision of the authentic Jesus.” (John Stott)
  9. “The man who accepts discipline at the hand of God as something designed by his heavenly Father for his good will cease to feel resentful and rebellious; he has stilled and quieted his soul, which thus provides fertile soil for the cultivation of a righteous life.” (F.F. Bruce in his commentary on Hebrews 12:4-11)
  10. “Please root from my heart all those things which I have cherished so long and which have become a very part of my living self, so that Thou mayest enter and dwell there without a rival.” (A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God)
