It is a wonderful paradox that each of us is made complete by imperfect people. We must learn that we are a general gift to many and a specific gift to some. All imperfect people are to be welcomed and loved on. We must be as enthusiastic about the journey of others as we are with our own.
(from Manifesting Your Spirit)
I think the responsibility of leadership in church is to produce a people like Jesus, not to do slick meetings or simply figure out how to get 5,000 people through your facility in a weekend. Let’s be a people who are actually producing something on the ground that could totally annihilate the enemy in our city. That’s our job!
(from The Overcoming Life 2: Rules Of Engagement)
Behavior is the echo of belief. It is our joy in the Earth to be absolutely intrigued and involved with the Lord Jesus Christ. We are never intimidated by the enemy or circumstances because we are too busy being fascinated by the Lord Jesus Christ!
(from The Art Of Thinking Brilliantly)
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity). And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].
James 3:17-18 AMPC
