Sweet Tweets

For your exhortation and edification, I offer you some words that will no doubt speak life into your spirit today. We all could use some encouragement these days, so here is a sampling from  my “favorites” file on Twitter:

  • “We cannot grow in grace by withdrawing from others.”
    David Timms, Living the Lord’s Prayer
  • “The greatest test of a servant is how you act when you are treated like one!”
    Sam Ward
  • “Faith never knows where it is being led. But it knows and loves the one who is leading.”
    Oswald Chambers
  • “Spiritual formation in Christ is the process by which one moves and is moved from self-worship to Christ-centered self-denial.”
    Dallas Willard
  • “The more I think it over the more I feel there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”
    Van Gogh
  • “When the time comes to die, make sure all you have to do is die!”
    Jim Elliot
  • “God doesn’t need your good works, your neighbor does.”
    Martin Luther
  • “A gospel-centered disciple is a disciple whose center of gravity is neither community nor mission but a settled identity in Jesus.”
    Jonathan Dodson
  • “A worshiper can work with an eternal quality in his work but a worker who doesn’t worship is only piling up wood.”
    A.W. Tozer”
  • “Purity of heart is to will one thing.”
    Soren Kierkegaard
  • “The mission is not to do my thing, or your thing, but to do our thing.”
    Mark Driscoll
  • “Revival is when God gets so sick and tired of being misrepresented that He shows Himself.”
    Leonard Ravenhill
  • “Great spirituality is what you do with your pain.”
    Richard Rohr
  • “Don’t be leaning on a shovel and praying for a ditch. Work like an Arminian, sleep like a Calvinist.”
    John W. Bryson

Which speaks to you?

  1. These are wonderful, thank you. As a disciple with a mission that Dodson one hit home
    😀 Strange how God gets his messages through, isn’t it?

      You are so RIGHT, Timbob! Yes, I’ve had seasons and stretches of silence, but God has been working, ploughing, encouraging…yeah, He’s been doing His Daddy thing!

      So delighted (and blessed) to hear from you, friend!

    They all represent key facets of Reality, but I think that Ravenhill’s quote seems to resonate with me the most right now.
    Not that I’m experiencing any kind of revival myself at the moment…. but rather I am reminded as to how patient God is.
