Here are some scripture and quotes that we think are important to our lives, and that we don’t want to forget.

The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet. – Frederick Buechner

“They replied, ‘We want to perform God’s works, too. What should we do?’  Jesus told them, ‘This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.'” – John 6:28-29

“God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.  And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.  Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.” – 1 John 4:16-18

“So refuse to worry, and keep your body healthy.” – Ecclesiastes 11:10 (NLT)

“If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.  Each one should test his own actions.  Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load.” – Galatians 6:3-5 (NIV)

“I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” – 1 Corinthians 9:22b (NIV)

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:1-2

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” – Romans 12:21

“But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.” – Ephesians 5:3-4 (Renounce Pagan Ways)
