Burn To Shine

God or the world, either way your life will be spent on one…

“Are the things you are living for worth Christ dying for?”
“The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized within the lifetime of the opportunity”

Leonard Ravenhill

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
“The will of God is always a bigger thing than we bargain for.”
“God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.”
“Lord, make my way prosperous not that I achieve high station, but that my life be an exhibit to the value of knowing God.”
“Forgive me for being so ordinary while claiming to know so extraordinary a God.”
“Wherever you are – be all there.”
“Children are arrows in a quiver, and they are to be trained as missionaries and shot at the Devil.”
“That saint who advances on his knees never retreats…”
“It’s hard to steer a parked car.”

Jim Elliot

“There are no closed doors to the Gospel, provided that, once you go through the door, you don’t care whether or not you come back out.”
“Our Lord said go. He said nothing about coming back.”

Brother Andrew

“Let us not rust out. Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly out of it without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Blessed Redeemer. At the very least, let us see to it that when the Devil gets news of our departure from the battlefield, he throws a thanksgiving party in hell.”

C.T. Studd

“And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives… and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.”

Nate Saint

“With thee, oh my God, there is no disappointment ; I shall never have to regret that I loved thee too well.”

Henry Martyn

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, we must get rid of every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and run with endurance the race set out for us, keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy set out for him he endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Hebrews 12:1-2
