got Jesus?

 
 

The Bible: He wrote it - we quote it! Why quote others?

Bees gather honey from a lot of flowers so speakers need to gather nectar from a lot of sources

If you haven’t struck oil in the first three minutes, stop boring – George Jessel

The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own – Charles Spurgeon

UNDERSTANDING

We can’t always make right decisions but with God’s help we can always make decisions right

Remember how Abraham got in the way of his own destiny with Hagar and Ishmael. Ishmael was a good idea, but Isaac was a God idea. Don’t be satisfied with just good ideas when you can wait patiently and get God ideas

Many need a check up from the neck up. They are all dressed up on the outside and all messed up on the inside. Lord, grant us understanding hearts

We need to adopt ideas then to adapt those ideas

I heard of a mother elephant that came by a nest of ostrich eggs. The mother ostrich had left to get water. The Elephant’s maternal instinct took over. “How could a mother leave her eggs like that”, she thought. So the mother elephant decided to help out, sat on the ostrich eggs and, of course, scrambled eggs was the result. The elephant had lots of compassion, but she lacked understanding. We need both

Jesus sat in church for 30 years listening to people try to interpret what He wrote

UNITY

Black preacher said, Your forefathers came over on the Santa Maria, mine came on a slave boat. We came on lots of different boats but we are all in the same boat now

Edwards’ focus was for Christians of all nations to “unite together to pray for a worldwide awakening and a return to primitive apostolic Christianity”

Not a bone in His body was broken on the cross, yet we continue to “break” fellowship with the slightest provocation - Tommy Tenney

We don’t compete, we complete - each other

The blood-line erased the color-line - Frank Bartleman, the Azusa Street revival

Cancer occurs when normal, healthy body cells turn into rogue cells, no longer functioning in their called capacity. These cancerous cells are so fiercely independent that they become parasitic. It is the body consuming the body. That is precisely what disunity is and what it does to the church. It is the Church feeding on the Church - self-destructive “Christian Cannibalism”! - Tommy Tenney

It is not the wedge that splits the log; it’s whoever keeps hammering it. All logs have slight splits but that doesn’t mean we are supposed to help it along - Keith Moore

Unity doesn’t come by joining body parts together. It comes by proper alignment to the Head

Exo 21:22 speaks of men fighting or striving together which causes a woman (the Bride) to lose her baby

Gentleman, if we do not hang together on our decision we will most assuredly all hang separately - Benjamin Franklin

We go to concerts to enjoy their harmony, not their unison. We would quickly tire of their monotony and walk out if every instrument played the same note, beat and volume. The wonder of symphony arises from its unity in diversity - Tommy Tenney

You can fellowship with someone on the basis of the 90 percent on which you commonly agree, or you can fight over the 10 percent about which you disagree - Tommy Tenney

If we can’t sit together on earth, will we dwell together in heaven? - Tommy Tenney

Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow - A.W. Tozer

There is an I-Land and a You-Land. Many are shipwrecked on their personal I-Land and hinder the unity that God requires before revival can come. Set sail and get off that I-Land

Denomination comes from Latin words - “de” meaning to “divide” and “nomma” meaning to number. So in a denomination we have divided and numbered the nation, the Christian nation

I don’t mind denominational walls - it’s the broken glass and razor wire on top that I don’t like. No one is allowed in or allowed out.

There is a new breed of churches where poverty can sit with prosperity without bitterness. And prosperity can sit with poverty without “betterness” - Tommy Tenney

Jesus walked through walls after His resurrection. Today, by the Holy Spirit we too are able to walk through walls - denominational walls

Our factions speak louder than our words! We may call it a spiritual democracy, but what the world often sees is more like a bunch of tribes of ecclesiastical cannibals ready to bite and devour the opposition at the drop of a hat

Where there’s a clique there’s usually a cluck - John Davis

In essentials, unity, in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity - Augustine

Kids play church then get up and fight when they are done. Uh, sadly - adults do too

Satan didn’t show up in the Garden until Eve was alone because he fears the power of two - Mike Murdock

Vance Havner quips that an appropriate greeting for believers nowadays would be “How are you cliquing today?”

Are we being fundamental or feud-amental?

Freckles would make a pretty good tan if they would just “get together”

“We” makes “Me” stronger. Remember the banana that gets peeled and eaten is the one that’s taken away from the rest of the bunch

Ghandi was quoted to say, “I would have become a Christian if it had not been for Christians”

What does that one verse say? - “and now abideth faith, hope and charity and the greatest of these is criticism”. No, that’s not right

I think we ought to tell those divisive, ecclesiastical know-it-alls to go to heaven

The word “saint” is never used in the Bible of a believer. It is always “saints” in the plural. No believer can make it on his own. He needs to be part of a local church

Don’t let some two bit nitwit hypocrite throw a fit, cause a split and make you quit

Even the devil understands the power of unity and corporate strength - he takes seven other devils with him (Mat 12:45)

Think of what we can do if we pull together. There were two grand champion horses that pulled sleds of 4,500 pounds and 4,400 pounds by themselves. That’s not quite 9,000 pounds. But hitched together they pulled 12,000 pounds

Jesus is not only the way to the Father; He is also the bridge to one another - Francis Frangipane

The church’s emphasis over the last half of the previous century has been on being joined to the body, with very little emphasis on being joined to the Head. If we are properly joined to the Head we will be properly joined to the body also, but the reverse is not necessarily true - Rick Joyner

We must receive all of the ministries. To partake of the Lord’s body, we must “eat the whole thing” - Rick Joyner

One does not tune twenty pianos by harmonizing each with the other; they are tuned to a tuning fork, and when each is in tune with the standard pitch, they are in tune with each other - Vance Havner

God’s people must quit pointing their rifles at each other and, instead, train them on the devil and then fire in unison - Mario Murillo

You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note - Doug Floyd
