Text Quotes
Muslims have great reverence in their prayers but not much intimacy  (Philip Yancey Quotes) O God, make the bad people good, and the good people nice  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Jesus never met a disease he could not cure, a birth defect he could not reverse, a demon he could not exorcise. But he did meet skeptics he could not convince and sinners he could not convert. Forgiveness of sins requires an act of will on the receiver’s part, and some who heard Jesus’ strongest words about grace and forgiveness turned away unrepentant  (Philip Yancey Quotes) God has, quite literally, all the time in the world for each one of us  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Love is an overarching style of relating to another  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Release what is good  (Philip Yancey Quotes) We respond to healing grace by giving it away  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Prayer is - keeping company with God  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Prayer is a place where God and humans meet  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Prayer enters the pool of God’s love and widens outward  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Grace, like water, flows to the lowest part  (Philip Yancey Quotes) I would far rather convey grace than explain it  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Grace is free only because the giver himself has borne the cost  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Some things just have to be believed to be seen  (Philip Yancey Quotes) You can know the law by heart without knowing the heart of it  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Pleasure represents a great good but also a grave danger  (Philip Yancey Quotes) The problem of pain meets its match in the scandal of grace  (Philip Yancey Quotes) What I see in the Bible, especially in the book of Psalms, which is a book of gratitude for the created world, is a recognition that all good things on Earth are God’s, every good gift is from above. They are good if we recognize where they came from and if we treat them the way the Designer intended them to be treated  (Philip Yancey Quotes) We tend to think, ‘Life should be fair because God is fair.’ But God is not life. And if I confuse God with the physical reality of life- by expecting constant good health for example- then I set myself up for crashing disappointment  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Power, no matter how well-intentioned, tends to cause suffering. Love, being vulnerable, absorbs it. In a point of convergence on a hill called Calvary, God renounced the one for the sake of the other  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Prayer, and only prayer, restores my vision to one that more resembles God’s. I awake from blindness to see that wealth lurks as a terrible danger, not a goal worth striving for; that value depends not on race or status but on the image of God every person bears; that no amount of effort to improve physical beauty has much relevance for the world beyond  (Philip Yancey Quotes) If prayer stands as the place where God and human beings meet, then I must learn about prayer. Most of my struggles in the Christian life circle around the same two themes: why God doesn’t act the way we want God to, and why I don’t act the way God wants me to. Prayer is the precise point where those themes converge  (Philip Yancey Quotes) A philosophy may explain difficult things, but has no power to change them. The gospel, the story of Jesus’ life, promises change  (Philip Yancey Quotes) If God doesn’t want something for me, I shouldn’t want it either. Spending time in meditative prayer, getting to know God, helps align my desires with God’s  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Prayer may seem at first like disengagement, a reflective time to consider God’s point of view. But that vantage presses us back to accomplish God’s will, the work of the kingdom. We are God’s fellow workers, and as such we turn to prayer to equip us for the partnership  (Philip Yancey Quotes) When the world asks if there is any hope, we can say absolutely! No one is exempt from tragedy or disappointment- God himself was not exempt. Jesus offered no immunity, no way out of the unfairness, but rather a way through it to the other side  (Philip Yancey Quotes) Politics draws lines between people; in contrast, Jesus’ love cuts across those lines and dispenses grace. That does not mean, of course, that Christians should not involve themselves in politics. It simply means that as we do so we must not let the rules of power displace the command to love  (Philip Yancey Quotes) If we comprehend what Christ has done for us, then surely out of gratitude we will strive to live ‘worthy’ of such great love. We will strive for holiness not to make God love us but because He already does  (Philip Yancey Quotes) The people of God are not merely to mark time, waiting for God to step in and set right all that is wrong. Rather, they are to model the new heaven and new earth, and by so doing awaken longings for what God will someday bring to pass  (Philip Yancey Quotes) I begin with confession not in order to feel miserable, rather to call to mind a reality I often ignore. When I acknowledge where I stand before a perfect God, it restores the true state of the universe. Confession simply establishes the proper ground rules of creatures relating to their creator  (Philip Yancey Quotes)
