Knowing Jesus

I love quotes – don’t you? Short, thought-provoking, and to-the-point.

So, on Wednesdays, I will share one or two that impacted me over the past week.

“[In Egypt], our theology is the theology of pain. It is not a theology of prosperity. We don’t know the theology of prosperity, but we know Jesus.” ~ Egyptian Believer
“The promises of the little kingdom [our agenda, our desires] will always fail. They will always leave me coming up short, because the spiritual oxygen that my heart needs to breathe can only be found in the Lord. Achievement, acceptance, appearance, and possessions may give you identity, meaning, and purpose for awhile. But they will enslave you in the process and disappoint you in the end.” ~ Paul David Tripp
