• “Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free and realizing you were the prisoner.” ~Max Lucado

  • God will teach you to pray. We speak, He listens. He speaks, we listen. This is prayer in its purest form. God changes His people through such moments ~Max Lucado

  • When we kept our sin silent, we withdrew from him. We saw him as an enemy. We took steps to avoid his presence. But our confession of faults alters our perception. God is no longer a foe but a friend. We are at peace with him . . . More than share in our sin, Jesus was “crushed for the evil we did. The punishment, which made us well, was given to him” (Isa. 53:5 NCV). “He accepted the shame” (Heb. 12:2 NCV). He leads us into the presence of God ~Max Lucado

  • Peace with God. What a happy consequence of faith! Not just peace between countries, peace between neighbors, or peace at home; salvation brings peace with God ~Max Lucado

  • Christianity, in its purest form, is nothing more than seeing Jesus. Christian service in its purest form, is nothing more than imitating him who we see. To see His Majesty and to imitate him, that is the sum of Christianity. ~Max Lucado

  • “Imagine considering every moment as a potential time of communion with God. By the time your life is over, you will have spent six months at stoplights, eight months opening junk mail, a year and a half looking for lost stuff (double that number in my case), and a whopping five years standing in various lines. Why don’t you give these moments to God? By giving God your whispering thoughts, the common becomes uncommon. Simple phrases such as “Thank you, Father,” “Be sovereign in this hour, O Lord,” “You are my resting place, Jesus” can turn a commute into a pilgrimage. You needn’t leave your office or kneel in your kitchen. Just pray where you are. Let the kitchen become a cathedral or the classroom a chapel. Give God your whispering thoughts.” ~Max Lucado, Just Like Jesus: A Heart Like His

  • To call yourself a child of God is one thing. To be called a child of God by those who watch your life is another thing altogether. ~Max Lucado
