Some good reading & watching from this weekend…
“Our mistake is that we want God to send revival on our terms. We want to get the power of God into our hands, to call it to us that it may work for us in promoting and furthering our kind of Christianity. We want still to be in charge, guiding the chariot through the religious sky in the direction we want it to go, shouting ‘Glory to God,’ it is true, but modestly accepting a share of the glory for ourselves in a nice inoffensive sort of way. We are calling on God to send fire on our altars, completely ignoring the fact that they are our altars and not God’s.” —A.W. Tozer
Eric Metaxas has a great take on depression in his post Depression And Black Dog Beliefs.
[VIDEO] I’m not a huge Duck Dynasty fan, but this short quote from Phil Robertson is pure gold!
Earth has a new address. Our home supercluster is called Laniakea (for the Hawaiian word meaning immeasurable heaven).
Whether you are a Detroit Tigers fan or not, this is a great story about teammates and friends.
“We are atheists in this matter of prayer compared to the early church. Many today look upon secret prayer as hard work and boring, so they do it only occasionally. Can you imagine a husband and wife living in the same house, hardly ever speaking and yet in public speaking as if they were intimate? So some treat our blessed Lord! Prayer, hidden secret prayer, is the mightiest weapon God has given His people; yet it is neglected, disdained, and seldom used.” —David Wilkerson
“Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return.” —Emmanuel Swedenborg
“Now if God be wisdom, as truth and Scripture testify, then a true philosopher is a lover of God.” —Augustine
