Quotes

We don’t try to be disciples; we train to be disciples – Bill Hull

Our behaviour either confirms or betrays what we believe (really believe, not just what we believe).

Where you live determines how you live.

It is not the important things that make a significant life. A significant life in Christ determines the important things e.g. loving people.
