Christian One Liners

Christian One Liners
Don't let your worries get the
best of you; remember, Moses started
out as a basket case.
Some people are kind, polite, and
sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.
Many folks want to serve God,
but only as advisors.
It is easier to preach ten sermons
than it is to live one.
The good Lord didn't create anything
without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.
When you get to your wit's end,
you'll find God lives there.
People are funny; they want the front
of the bus, the middle of the road, and
the back of the church.
Opportunity may knock once, but temptation
bangs on your front door forever.
Quit griping about your church;
if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.
If the church wants a better preacher,
it only needs to pray for the one it has.
God Himself does not propose to judge
a man until he is dead. So why should you?
Some minds are like concrete
thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
Peace starts with a smile.
I don't know why some people
change churches; what difference does
it make which one you stay home from?
A lot of church members who are singing
'Standing on the Promises'
are just sitting on the premises.
We were called to be witnesses,
not lawyers or judges.
Be ye fishers of men. You catch
them - He'll clean them.
Coincidence is when God
chooses to remain anonymous.
Don't put a question mark
where God put a period.
Don't wait for 6 strong men
to take you to church.
Forbidden fruits create many jams.
God doesn't call the qualified,
He qualifies the called.
God grades on the cross, not the curve.
God loves everyone, but probably prefers
'fruit of the spirit' over a 'religious nut!'
*+*+* +*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
God promises a safe landing,

not a calm passage.
He who angers you, controls you!
If God is your Co-pilot - swap seats!

Don't give God instructions -- just report for duty!

The task ahead of us is never as
great as the Power behind us.
The Will of God never takes you to
where the Grace of God will not protect you.
We don't change the message,
the message changes us.
You can tell how big a person is
by what it takes to discourage him.
The best mathematical equation
I have ever seen:
1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.
If this e-mail blessed you in a profound
way today my Dear Friend, PLEASE pass
this along to bless them today,
tomorrow and ALWAYS!
May God and His Son bless you
from today on out!
I bet someone will LOVE it
just as much as you did.

Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV) 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

Dear Friends and Partners in the Kingdom of God ministries,

Let me tell you a story of a very rich man.

John D. Rockefeller, Sr., was strong and husky when small. He early determined to earn money and drove himself to the limit. At age 33, he earned his first million dollars. At age 43, he controlled the biggest company in the world. At age 53, he was the richest man on earth and the world’s only billionaire.

Then he developed a sickness called “alopecia,” where the hair of his head dropped off, his eyelashes and eyebrows disappeared, and he was shrunken like a mummy. His weekly income was one million dollars, but he digested only milk and crackers. He was so hated in Pennsylvania that he had to have bodyguards day and night. He could not sleep, stopped smiling long since, and enjoyed nothing in life.

The doctors predicted he would not live over one year. The newspaper had gleefully written his obituary in advance—for convenience in sudden use. Those sleepless nights set him thinking. He realized with a new light that he “could not take one dime into the next world.” Money was not everything.

The next morning found him a new man. He began to help churches with his amassed wealth; the poor and needy were not overlooked. He established the Rockefeller Foundation whose funding of medical researches led to the discovery of penicillin and other wonder drugs. John D. began to sleep well, eat and enjoy life. He was a blessing to the nations. The doctors had predicted he would not live over age 54. He lived up to 98.

Jesus also told a story of a rich man and who was extravagant and selfish.

Luke 16:19-31 (NKJV) 19 “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’ 27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’ ”

There was a day the rich man was in need and cried for help and his prayers were not answered. I believe their prayers and cries will not be heard while their on earth [before death] if they do not repent of their selfish and extravagant living. This is a lesson for every Christian and local churches in every nation.

Proverbs 21:13 (NKJV) 13 Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be heard.

Dear followers of the Living God [the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ],

Live a responsible live. Take care of those who belong to the family of God and who are serving God and also take care of the poor.

Proverbs 31:9 (NKJV) 9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.

While we are on earth we can help with our substance to build up other lives. After we have gone to the grave we cannot help or cry for help.

May the Father’s heart be revealed accurately by His sons. [On earth believing women join the believing men and live as sons of God. Through out eternity the believing men get to join the believing women and live as the bride of Jesus Christ].

Pray also for us that the Word of the Lord may spread rapidly and run its course and be glorified and triumph, as it is happening in all the places the Father has taken us to..
