A Christian is not just a person going to Heaven. Shouldn’t a Christian also be a person coming from Heaven, with the goods, power and virtue of Heaven? --Spiritual Discernment and the Mind of Christ

If you stumble, get up. If you sin, repent. Whatever you do, in spite of your feelings, do not lose your vision of attaining Christ’s likeness. Your spiritual vision is more important than your physical vision. Without spiritual vision you will perish (Prov. 29:18 KJV). --Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God

Men everywhere presume they know the "truth," but they have neither holiness nor power in their lives. Truth must be more than a museum of religious artifacts -- mementos from when God once moved. Truth is knowing God’s heart as it was revealed in Christ, and it is knowing our own hearts in the light of God’s grace. --Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God

It’s not always the devil that stands in the way of our spiritual progress; for many it’s religious pride. Jesus explained it this way, "No one, after drinking old wine wishes for new; for he says, ‘The old is good enough’" (Luke 5:39). This attitude, that my spiritual level is "good enough," mutes our hunger for more of God. It leaves us a captive to yesterday’s level of attainment. --In Christ's Image Training

An imperfect world is job security for an intercessor. --In Christ's Image Training

Step out in faith and observe the concerns people raise. Yes, some concerns should be heeded, but many will be warnings from people still living in the land of failure. "Don’t be presumptuous," they will warn. "That didn’t work for me," they caution. Of course, we don’t want to be presumptuous or reckless, but remember, Jesus never warned, "Woe to ye of too much faith." Too much faith hasn’t been a problem. Our problem has been believing too little. --In Christ's Image Training

At some point between now and when Christ returns, leaders in the born-again church will begin to see division between their churches as sin against Christ. Congregations from different backgrounds will help one another when needs arise; pastors will pray with each other regularly, and Christians will be known for their love. The body of Christ will unite around Jesus, and in their unity Christ Himself will be revealed. The bride will have made herself ready. ---In Christ's Image Training
