Great Quotes


The other day Matt (from my Bible Study) text me with a quote which was really neat. I then decided to collect good quotes from around the place and see what I came up with...

"God FOR us, Romans 8:31
God WITH us, Matthew 1:23
God IN us, 1st Corinthians 6:19
WHAT ISN'T POSSIBLE?"

"You cannot always feel God with your feelings, but you can always feel Him with your faith"

"Jesus prefered to go to Hell for you, than to Heaven without you"-Max Lucado

"There is no place where God's presence is not"-Ted Kelly

"You could cut me into a thousand peices and lay them out on the street, but every peice would cry out "Jesus loves you" and you'll never be able to run from that"-Nicky Cruz

"God knows Satans tricks, but He (God) always gets the last say"

"How can people believe that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth was created by mere chance, when all the skills of Science cannot even produce an oyster?"-Ken Ham

"God's power is unleashed when God's people pray"-Max Lucado

"Give Jesus what you've got, and He'll give you back what you need"

"Unless you assume a God, the question of life's purpose will remain meaningless"-Bertrand Russell

"You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense"

"God and man exist for each other and neither will be satisfied without the other"

  • Hey Good Quotes! I've heard a couple of those before. I really like those.

  • I'd heard the God FOR us / God WITH us / God IN us thing before, but in terms of the development of the Biblical story - in the Old Testament God is for his people, in the Gospel he is with them, and in the New Testament letters he is in them. And so, we can connect this to the Trinity - the Father is for us, the Son is with us, the Holy Spirit is in us.

    But on the other hand, I strongly disagree with this:
    God and man exist for each other and neither will be satisfied without the other.

    No, God is completely satisfied in himself.

  • Thanks for adding a comment here. I'll go check out 'who you are' when I get the chance.

    I can see where you're coming from when you say that God is completely satisfied in Himself...and I agree. I hunted up where I got that quote from and it turns out to be from A.W. Tozer. I think what he getting at was that we cannot be satisfied without God, but God cannot be satisfied WITH US when we have no fellowship with Him. (As we were created for His pleasure)
    Hmm. Not sure. That's what I got from it. Thoughts?

  • Oh, from Melbourne! I'm from Ballarat!

  • Yes, I live in Melbourne (though I'm actually a Tasmanian - I've been here almost 3 years) and I can't even remember how I found your blog. Susan? Maidens of Worth?

    Anyway, I was thinking particularly of Acts 17:25 - God is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else...

  • I do totally agree with you.

    I have Aunts and Uncle's in Tassie..actually, my cousin has just moved from Tassie to Melbourne to start Bible college.

  • I've just found out how I found your blog - it was from a comment you made on this thread on Adrian Keister's blog. :)
