Twenty-Five Gems for the Journey

What you'll find here is a conglomeration of thoughts that come to my mind at any given time here and there (even while I'm out jogging). You may have even read one or two of these in a tweet? Do you ever have God speak to you? If you're a Christian, it should be a usual occurrence. I would say that many of these are God speaking to me, while some others (of course) are just things I've read (and in the Bible) that really stick. (He speaks that way, too!) You get a bit of a look inside the heart of @aheartforgod on twitter as you read this list. And may it be that the Lord will quicken one of these as His word to you wherever you might find yourself? It's just like Him to do that, you know. God bless. Jesus is near, right at the door.

Gems for the Journey

1. You can not at the same time bow down before man and bow down to Jesus.
2. It's not perfection, it's direction.
3. You are never as good as your best day; You are never as bad as your worst. (Tony LaRussa)
4. (Especially for pastors) It could be a sign of compromise that your church is growing.
5. Some trade one form of legalism for another and call it freedom.
6. You can live close to Jesus your whole life and still betray Him.
7. Character (not charisma, color or creed) is what counts.
8. There is a point of diminished return.
9. It's not about you; it’s about Him (Christ).
10. Don’t be afraid to see what you see. (Ronald Reagan)
11. Wickedness oftentimes appears with pretty smiles & good looks.
12. Above all else (except Jesus) love your wife.
13. Only after Mohammed rises from the dead should people worship Allah.
14. Some churches are being pastored by unbelievers.
15. What isn't said can be just as powerful as what is.
16. (Especially for pastors) You are both expendable and indispensable at the same time.
17. Killing babies in the womb is murder.
18. But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves. (2 Timothy 3:1-2a)
19. The person who has not still gives more than the person who has. (Mark 12:41-44)
20. And so what if something worthwhile really is taking place where you are at?
21. You can be so thirsty that you begin to see a mirage as the real thing.
22. Honorable death is a treasure no man is too poor to purchase. (The Last Battle; Lewis)
23. You can take the man out of the pulpit, but you can't take the pulpit out of the man.
24. You must become the godly man for your boy that you wish your dad or grandfather was for you.
25. The greatest thing is love. (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)
