"Obedience is the fruit of faith; patience, the bloom on the fruit." - Christina Rosetti, quoted in Streams in the Desert

"[Thomas More] was a friend of the king… but why did a man so utterly absorbed in his society, at one particular point disastrously part company with it? How indeed was it possible - unless there was some sudden aberration? But that explanation won't do, because he continued to the end to make familiar and confident use of society's weapons, tact, favor, and, above all, the letter of the law. For More.. the answer to this question would be perfectly simple (though again not easy); the English Kingdom, his immediate society, was subservient to the larger society of the Church of Christ, founded by Christ, extending over Past and Future, ruled from Heaven. There are still some for whom that is perfectly simple." - Robert Bolt in his preface to A Man for All Seasons

"It is our business to see that we do right; God will see that we come out right." - Donald Gray Barnhouse

"What I have found is that many of us know the Word of God, but we lack obedience to it. We go to church, hear sermon after sermon, but are educated way above the level of our obedience. We are not only to read God's Word, but we are to hide it in our hearts and become obedient to it." - John Maxwell

"Faith, if we are honest, sometimes seems like a candle in the rain, hissing for air…Right in the middle of our prayers; the baby cries, the thunder claps, the fury breaks…[But] the power of God comes to those who obey." - Bill Hybels in Descending into Greatness

"He did not call Abraham or any of us that we might be His pets, but that we might be His pattern." - Nelson Price, Pastor, Roswell Street Baptist Church, Marietta, Georgia

"When we have the feeling that on some occasion we have disobeyed God, it simply means that for a time we have ceased to desire obedience." - Simone Weil in Waiting for God

"He that hopes to find peace by trusting God must obey him." - Samuel Johnson in Sermons

"A truth not practiced is a truth not believed." - Source Unknown

"True knowledge of God is born out of obedience." - John Calvin

"It is difficult to follow God's guidance, if we are on rigid paths of our own." - Source Unknown

"When the heart's wrong, there can't be peace. Selfishness is a gangrene, eating at the very vitals. Sin is a cancer, poisoning the blood. Peace is the rhythm of our wills with Jesus' love - will. Disobedience breaks the music. Failure to keep in touch makes discord. The notes jar and grate. We have broken off. The peace can't get in. Jesus made peace by his blood. We get it only by keeping in full touch with him." - S. D. Gordon in The Bent-Knee Time

Christian One-Liners

Some people are kind, polite and sweet-spirited… Until you try to sit in their pews. Many folks want to serve God…! But only as advisers. It is easier to preach ten sermons… Than it is to live one.
