The truth is, their lives wouldn’t look much different if they suddenly stopped believing in God.” ~ Francis Chan

It is to honor God with our lips and have cold hearts that are far from Him. May He give us a love that moves us from the pews into the streets, and from our homes into our universities. God save us from the cozy comfort of lukewarm contemporary Christianity.” ~ Ray Comfort

True prayer must be aflame.” ~ Edward McKendree Bounds

Moderation…is lukewarm tea, the devil’s own brew.” ~ Dan Millman

On my private list, I add her smile. She doesn’t have to know.” ~ Libba Bray
