Here we have compiled a collection of Biblical and Christian quotes on the topic of living.
The basic premise of religion—that if you live a good life, things will go well for you—is wrong. Jesus was the most morally upright person who ever lived, yet he had a life filled with the experience of poverty, rejection, injustice, and even torture.
God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons that we could learn in no other way.
But whatever you do, find the God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated passion of your life, and find your way to say it and live for it and die for it. And you will make a difference that lasts. You will not waste your life.
Procrastination is a thief of time.
The difference between ‘involvement’ and ‘commitment’ is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was ‘involved’ – the pig was ‘committed’.
Death is the opening of a more subtle life. In the flower, it sets free the perfume; in the chrysalis, the butterfly; in man, the soul.
If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.
We cannot put dirt into a well and produce clean water.
Live your life so that the preacher won’t have to lie at your funeral.
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
While we may not be called to martyr our lives, we must martyr our way of life. We must put our selfish ways to death and march to a different beat. Then the world will see Jesus.
