Favorite Quotes

I hope you have enjoyed and been challenged into action by my last several posts.  If you are just joining us on this my blog, I really encourage you to go back to the post entitled “Complete the Task” and read back toward the present.  It’s a lot; but well worth it, if I may say so.  In this post, I’d like to share some of my favorite quotes from Perspectives.  I couldn’t have said any of these more perfectly.

How long does it take to become a disciple? As long as it takes the nets to hit the ground. -Robert Brown

Christ asks, “I have done this for you, now what have you done for Me?”  Why do we do this?  May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering.  -Robert Brown
