Here are a few quotes I’ve been thinking on this week. Hope one of them encourages you this week in some capacity:

The success of a ministry is always more a picture of who God is than a statement about who the people are that he is using for his purpose. – Paul David Tripp, Dangerous Calling

Sin demands to have a man by himself. It withdraws him from the community. The more isolated a person is, the more destructive will be the power of sin over him, and the more deeply he becomes involved in it, the more disastrous is his isolation. Sin wants to remain unknown. It shuns the light. – Deitrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together

The weekly worship service can be very effective in evangelism of non-Christians and in edification of Christians if it is both gospel centered and in the vernacular. – Tim Keller, Center Church  (This has implications in our student ministry gatherings as well!)
