Sabbath Keeping

"Declare His glory among the nations,
His marvelous deeds among all peoples."
~ 1 Chronicles 16:24 ~

"When I cannot read,
when I cannot think,
when I cannot even pray,
I can trust."

"Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't."  ~ John Piper ~

"My desires seem especially to be after weanedness from the world, perfect deadness to it, and that I may be crucified to all its allurements. My soul desires to feel itself more of a pilgrim and a stranger here below, that nothing may divert me from pressing through the lonely desert, till I arrive at my Father's house." ~ David Brainerd ~

"Expect great things from God,
attempt great things for God."

"There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, "Mine!" ~ Abraham Kuyper ~

"I have a firm conviction that I am immortal until my work is complete." ~ Lottie Moon ~

"I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth "home." Before you know it, I am calling luxuries "needs" and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I don't think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace.I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set." ~ John Piper ~

"Go straight for souls and go for the worst." ~ William Booth ~

"Stand Fast,
Stand Firm,
Stand Sure,
Stand True."

"The best remedy for a sick church is to put it on a missionary diet." ~David Livingstone ~

"Let nothing be said about anyone unless it passes through the three sieves: 
Is it true? 
Is it kind? 
Is it necessary."

"Bloom where you're planted.
The mission field is under your feet."
~ Sandra ~

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age."

Please pray for ~ Daisy ~ Mat ~ Jim ~ Steve ~ Rebekah ~
