Encouraging Quotes…

 I read these quotes in a book called Jesus Freaks this week. They really spoke to my heart; I hope they speak to yours too.

 “Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your Master. Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you’re living the way you are.”Peter the Apostle, Martyred in Rome, 65 AD (1 Peter 3:14,15)

“Some Christians haven’t even attempted to think about whether or not they would die for Jesus because they haven’t really been living for Him.”dc Talk (music band)

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” Jim Elliot (Speared by headhunters in Ecuador while serving there as a missionary in 1956.)

 “My dear Jesus, my Savior, is so deeply written in my heart, that I feel confident, that if my heart were to be cut open and chopped to pieces, the name of Jesus would be found written on every piece.”Ignatius, A student under John (Devoured by wild animals in Rome  111 AD)

 ” Jesus is everything.”Mother Teresa (Gave her life to the poor of India, Died in 1997.)
