Francis Chan Quote: “This is why self-deprecation is as wicked as slandering God’s Church.”
Francis Chan Quote: “This is the mistake a lot of couples make. They spend a lot of time looking at themselves and each other but very little time staring at God. When this is the focus, they naturally begin to structure every aspect of their lives around the few years they have with each other on earth, rather than the millions they will spend in His presence. Or away from His presence. These people live as though they are not dying. They live as though the King is not returning.”
Francis Chan Quote: “It’s not about figuring out all of the mysteries of God, but embracing Him and cherishing Him – even when He doesn’t make perfect sense to us.”
Francis Chan Quote: “When we present the gospel, we try to answer one question: How do I keep from going to hell? After that question is answered, we stop asking questions about God. With the American church being so concerned about converts, we don’t take the time to present the God-centered universe to people. We don’t try to dig deep into the truth of God. We need to learn the attributes of God before we know what He is like.”
Francis Chan Quote: “There are times when the most loving thing we can do is teach people that joy will come only when they stop screaming for attention and save their voices for the throne.”
Francis Chan Quote: “When we forget about the Spirit, we really are forgetting God.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Do you love this God who is everything, or do you just love everything He gives you? Do you really know and believe that God loves you, individually and personally and intimately?”
Francis Chan Quote: “James 2:17- ‘Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.’ The lives of many people who call themselves ‘Christians’ in America lack manifestations of a vital and active faith. And this, to be perfectly honest, frightens me. It keeps me up at night. It causes me to pray desperately and fervently for my congregation, for the groups of people I speak to, and for the church as a whole.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Maybe this is why 75 percent of church-raised children ditch the church when they turn 18. They see the gap between our supposed beliefs and our actions and decide not to join the hypocrisy.”
Francis Chan Quote: “The God of the universe is not something we can just add to our lives and keep on as we did before. The Spirit who raised Christ from the dead is not someone we can just call on when we want a little extra power in our lives. Jesus Christ did not die in order to follow us. He died and rose again so that we could forget everything else and follow Him to the cross, to true Life.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Find all of your security and worth in being a child of God, a member of Christ’s body.”
Francis Chan Quote: “If you are going to make disciples, you need to be putting your faith into practice so that the people around you can imitate your faith.”
Francis Chan Quote: “God is not someone who can be tacked on to our lives.”
Francis Chan Quote: “It’s incredibly arrogant to pick and choose which incomprehensible truths we embrace. No one wants to ditch God’s plan of redemption, even though it doesn’t make sense to us. Neither should we erase God’s revealed plan of punishment because it doesn’t sit well with us. As soon as we do this, we are putting God’s actions in submission to our own reasoning, which is a ridiculous thing for the clay to do.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Even now, I am working to make sure that my family is set up for the future. When most people make that statement, they are talking about financial security for their last few years on earth. When I say it, I’m referring to the millions of years that come after that. People.”
Francis Chan Quote: “If someone asked you what the greatest good on this earth is, what would you say? An epic surf session? Financial security? Health? Meaningful, trusting friendships? Intimacy with your spouse? Knowing that you belong? The greatest good on this earth is God. Period. God’s one goal for us is Himself.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Arguments escalate when we want to be right more than we want to be CHRIST. It’s easy to get blinded in the heat of disagreement. Soon, all we want is to win. Even if victory requires sin. The one who wins the argument is usually the one who acts LESS like Christ.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Jesus took away all of our ugliness. Unlike a typical bride, we are all shabby, grotesque, and woefully unprepared moments before we walk down the aisle. But our Groom beautifies us when we look to Him in faith, and in that instant we become His cherished bride.”
Francis Chan Quote: “The God of the universe is not something we can just add to our lives and keep on as we did before.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Like many things in life, there really isn’t a sew-it-all-up solution. And I love that. God is big and mysterious enough that we cannot simply put a label on this process and move on. It requires continual engagement and wrestling and discovering how to live a Spirit-filled life today. Not ten years from now. Not tomorrow. But right now, in the particular time and place He has put us. As we “work out our salvation” and as “God works in us.” Let us keep in step.”
Francis Chan Quote: “If we really want to love our neighbors as ourselves, then it makes sense that we spend at least as much on them as we do on ourselves.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Even our church growth can happen without Him. Let’s be honest: If you combine a charismatic speaker, a talented worship band, and some hip, creative events, people will attend your church. Yet this does not mean that the Holy Spirit of God is actively working and moving in the lives of the people who are coming. It simply means that you have created a space that is appealing enough to draw people in for an hour or two on Sunday.”
Francis Chan Quote: “As we love more genuinely and deeply, giving becomes the obvious and natural response.”
Francis Chan Quote: “I imagined God looking down on the earth and seeing people on one side of the planet gathering expectantly whenever prayer was happening. Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, people show up only for the most talented people and the “atmosphere.” It’s embarrassing.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Lukewarm people feel secure because they attend church, made a profession of faith at age twelve, were baptized, come from a Christian family, vote Republican, or live in America. Just as the prophets in the Old Testament warned Israel that they were not safe just because they lived in the land of Israel, so we are not safe just because we wear the label ‘Christian’ or because some people persist in calling us a ‘Christian nation.”
Francis Chan Quote: “If we don’t stare at God, we’ll spend our time staring at lesser things. Namely, ourselves.”
Francis Chan Quote: “I honestly believe that most of us – while we might say we want to be led by the Spirit – are actually scared of this reality. I know I am. What would it mean? What if He asks you to give up something you’re not ready to give up? What if He leads you where you don’t want to go? What if he tells you to change jobs? To move? Are you willing to surrender to Him, no matter where He wants to take you? Am I?”
Francis Chan Quote: “Fear has a way of channeling our thought process.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Many pastors expect their members to sit under their teachings till they die rather than training them to leave and shepherd others. Paul was clear that church leaders are to equip the saints for work. Hugh Halter sees this as a trap we build for ourselves: “Many vocational ministers are stuck doing the work of ministry because they take a paycheck from consumer Christians who fail to see the full scope of their calling.”1.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Someone is watching you right now as you read this. Think about that. The God who loans you life sees your every move, hears each word you speak, and knows your every thought. And this is a good thing. You are seen by God. Noticed. Known.”
Francis Chan Quote: “Stories of people who died after living godly lives are stories with happy endings.”
Francis Chan Quote: “If you really want to experience God, go and make disciples.”
