“One must not think that a person who is suffering is not praying.

The Resurrection revealed this glory — eschatological glory. … Those who share in the sufferings of Christ are also called, through their own sufferings, to share in glory” St. John Paul II, Salvifici Doloris


Quotes for Lent:

“As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus’ thirst…’Repent and believe’ Jesus tells us. What are we to repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart. What are we to believe? Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor — He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you.” Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things. But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.” Pope St. Gregory the Great

“Renounce yourself in order to follow Christ; discipline your body; do not pamper yourself, but love fasting.” Saint Benedict

“Whoever wishes to be my follower must deny his very self, take up his cross each day, and follow in my steps.” Luke 9:23

“One should never initiate anything that he cannot saturate with prayer.” Unknown

“Lent is like a long ‘retreat’ during which we can turn back into ourselves and listen to the voice of God, in order to defeat the temptations of the Evil One. It is a period of spiritual ‘combat’ which we must experience alongside Jesus, not with pride and presumption, but using the arms of faith: prayer, listening to the word of God and penance. In this way we will be able to celebrate Easter in truth, ready to renew the promises of our Baptism.” Pope Benedict XVI

 

Quotes on Fasting:

“Fasting cleanses the soul, raises the mind, subjects one’s flesh to the spirit, renders the heart contrite and humble, scatters the clouds of concupiscence, quenches the fire of lust, and kindles the true light of chastity. Enter again into yourself.” St. Augustine

“Bless those who curse you, and pray for your enemies, and fast for those who persecute you.” Didache

“When a man begins to fast, he straightway yearns in his mind to enter into converse with God.” St. Isaac the Syrian

“Fasting is the soul of prayer, mercy is the lifeblood of fasting. So if you pray, fast; if you fast, show mercy; if you want your petition to be heard, hear the petition of others. If you do not close your ear to others, you open God’s ear to yourself.” St. Peter Chrysologus

“When the stomach is full it is easy to talk of fasting.” St. Jerome

“Do you fast? Give me proof of it by your works. If you see a poor man, take pity on him. If you see a friend being honored, do not envy him. Do not let only your mouth fast, but also the eye, and the ear, and the feet, and the hands, and all the members of our bodies.” St. John Chrysostom

“We must fast with our whole heart, that is to say, willing, wholeheartedly, universally and entirely.” St. Francis de Sales

“God hides the prize of eternal glory in our mortifications and in the victory of ourselves, which we always strive for with great gentleness.” St. Jane Frances Chantal

“The Scripture is full of places that prove fasting to be not the invention of man but the institution of God, and to have many more profits than one. And that the fasting of one man may do good unto another, our Saviour showeth himself where he saith that some kind of devils cannot be cast out of one man by another “without prayer and fasting.” And therefore I marvel that they take this way against fasting and other bodily penance.” St. Thomas More

“Fasting is most intimately connected with prayer. For the mind of one who is filled with food and drink is so borne down as not to be able to raise itself to the contemplation of God, or even to understand what prayer means.” Catechism of the Council of Trent

“The ultimate goal of fasting is to help each one of us to make a complete gift of self to God.” Pope Benedict XVI

30 Bible Quotes That Will Change Your Perspective on Life

best wisdom quotes god

Discouragement is something everyone feels—including Christians.

There are times when a single word or an unmet expectation can deplete you of your confidence, deflate your faith, or make you feel disheartened. That's why the bible verse of the day is so powerful.

Think about it.

  • Have you experienced a setback at work?
  • Have you ever had a difficult time with one of your kids?
  • Are you looking to inspire people to use online giving?
  • Have you ever worried about having enough money to pay your bills?
  • Has someone mistreated you at school, work, or online?
  • Have you recently had a death in the family?
  • Are you looking for church fundraising ideas?
  • Or have you ever just felt down?

Anyone of these situations (and many more) can make you feel discouraged. They can take the wind right out of your sails.

Now, when you’re disappointed, it’s natural to desire peace in your heart. You want to be comforted. You want different results at work. You want peace in your family. Or you just want your money problems to go away.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting things to be different.

You just have to be careful not to wallow in self-pity for too long. Indulging in feelings of discouragement will fuel the sinful passions of your flesh (1 Pet. 2:11), and they can become an idol in your life if you chose to turn inward to your feelings instead of turning outward in faith to God.

To resolve the disappointment in your life, you cannot avoid challenging relationships, problems at work, or your financial struggles and think they’ll go away. That would be similar to ignoring a deadly disease in your body by avoiding medical help and believing you’re going to be okay.

So how do you fight discouragement? How can you break through the fog of disappointment?

There’s only one antidote to discouragement and that's encouragement.

Okay, I know this sounds simplistic, and I’m not talking about reciting a pithy quote from a motivational poster, either.

To defeat discouragement in your life you have to fight for encouragement in Christ.

To dislodge discouragement from your heart, you need to kindle the fire of your faith with encouraging Bible verses or simply reading a bible verse of the day.

You see, God not only reveals himself to us through the Bible. He also preserved the Bible to encourage us through the Scriptures so that “we might have hope”(Rom. 15:4). The Bible is a supernatural book, and the words in its pages have been written down to lead you to Christ and fill you with hope in Him.

To help you fight for encouragement in your life, we’re going to share with you a list of encouraging Bible verses you can meditate upon and that you can use as a bible verse of the day to fuel your faith in Christ.

In this post, we’re going to walk the following inspirational Bible verses:

  • Encouraging Bible verses
  • Christian encouragement quotes
  • Inspirational Bible verses
  • Inspirational religious quotes
  • Bible verses about strength

Ephesians 3:17-19-21:

“So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever.”

Philippians 3:7-9:

“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.”

Hebrews 10:19-23:   

“Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.”

Hebrews 12:1-2:   

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”

1 Peter 2:9-10:   

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

1 Peter 2:11:   

“Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.”

James 1:2-4:   

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

1 John 3:1-3:   

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appearswe shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.”

1 John 3:22:

“And whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.”

350 Best Spiritual Quotes That Will Enrich Your Life

best wisdom quotes god

Worship is how we express our love, adoration, admiration, and wonder at God’s presence. The Christian breathes in God’s goodness and exhales worship.

For a lot of the church, worship has become synonymous with singing—but that’s just one way that worship expresses itself. True worship happens when our entire life becomes a declaration of trust in God’s incredible mercy.

Paul expressed this very idea when he said, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Rom. 12:1)

Here are 20 powerful and inspiring quotes to help you understand worship better. (You can download all these images for free to use in your service or on social media here.)

1. Worship is practice for eternity

“I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.”A.W. Tozer

Someday worship will be an integral part of our everyday existence. It will not be an activity that comes from faith, but will be a natural response that arises from first-hand experience with the living God.

2. We desperately need to worship

“I need to worship because without it I can forget that I have a big God beside me and live in fear. I need to worship because without it I can forget his calling and begin to live in a spirit of self-preoccupation. I need to worship because without it I lose a sense of wonder and gratitude and plod through life with blinders on. I need worship because my natural tendency is toward self-reliance and stubborn independence.”John Ortberg

God uses worship to recenter our priorities and reestablish where our security lies. We can be taught why it’s important to praise and glorify God, but until it’s a regular part of our lives, we’ll never understand how God is using it to keep us focused.

3. Seeking a worshipful spirit

“You never go away from us, yet we have difficulty in returning to You. Come, Lord, stir us up and call us back. Kindle and seize us. Be our fire and our sweetness. Let us love. Let us run.”Augustine of Hippo

In this world, our hunger for worship will wax and wane. It’s appropriate and imperative that we ask God to rekindle a worshipful spirit within us. Sometimes the most powerful prayer we can pray is, “God, make me a worshiper.”

4. Worship springs from amazement

“We are perishing for lack of wonder, not for lack of wonders.”G.K. Chesterton

We live in an amazing world that doesn’t lack for awe-inspiring marvels of nature and technology. It’s critical that we don’t become deadened to wonder, because astonishment is a raw material for worship.

The moment we lose that childlike sense of wonder, it’s hard to worship with any real vigor.

5. Worship arises from right priorities

“Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.”Charles Spurgeon

Every human being has a natural inclination toward worship. If our world isn’t rightly ordered, we will end up worshiping and serving things besides God. It isn’t until we’re able to rightly prioritize God above everything else in our world that we can begin to worship in spirit and truth.

6. We worship an amazing God

“Many Spirit-filled authors have exhausted the thesaurus in order to describe God with the glory He deserves. His perfect holiness, by definition, assures us that our words can’t contain Him. Isn’t it a comfort to worship a God we cannot exaggerate?”Francis Chan

It’s mindblowing to think that we can worship God for thousands of years and never exhaust the his worshipful attributes. If we become bored with worship, it’s likely that we’ve lost sight of this truth.

7. Music is a divine gift

“Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through music.”Martin Luther

There’s a reason that nearly every culture and religion incorporates worship into the act of worship. Music stirs some portion of our hearts that intellect alone cannot touch. When you think about it, it’s strange that music should exist at all. But somewhere, at some time, someone sang the first song—and it was a gift of God’s grace.

8. Worship is the right response to God

“Worship is the proper response of all moral, sentient beings to God, ascribing all honor and worth to their Creator-God precisely because he is worthy, delightfully so.”D.A. Carson

No one has to teach a Christian to worship God. In some way, every believer responds worshipfully to an encounter with God. It’s really the only rational response. If we never feel those pulls toward worship, it might be a sign that we’re drifting away from our first love.

9. Worship is a remedy for apathy

“Who will deny that true religion consists, in a great measure, in vigorous and lively actings of the inclination and will of the soul, or the fervent exercises of the heart? That religion which God requires, and will accept, does not consist in weak, dull, and lifeless, wishes, raising us but a little above a state of indifference.”Jonathan Edwards

When we experience a life-changing encounter with God, worship is a natural impulse. As Christians mature, however, we discover that worship can’t simply be reactive. We must learn to be proactive in glorifying God, even when it’s not our current disposition. As David was known to do, we need to command ourselves to worship by declaring:

“Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.”Psalm 43:5

10. We choose to worship

“Worship has been misunderstood as something that arises from a feeling which ‘comes upon you,’ but it is vital that we understand that it is rooted in a conscious act of the will, to serve and obey the Lord Jesus Christ.”Graham Kendrick

There are times when something stirs in our hearts and everything inside of us responds in worship, but those are grace-filled promptings of the Spirit. It’s important that we make worship a conscience choice, and a wilful act.

11. Worship must be grounded in truth

“The worship to which we are called in our renewed state is far too important to be left to personal preferences, to whims, or to marketing strategies. It is the pleasing of God that is at the heart of worship. Therefore, our worship must be informed at every point by the Word of God as we seek God’s own instructions for worship that is pleasing to Him.”R.C. Sproul

While we all have personal preferences for the kinds of music we enjoy or the sort of environments we find most worshipful, our praise should be grounded in our common understanding of God from his word.

12. Watching out for fuzzy worship

“Put it this way: if your idea of God, if your idea of the salvation offered in Christ, is vague or remote, your idea of worship will be fuzzy and ill-formed. The closer you get to the truth, the clearer becomes the beauty, and the more you will find worship welling up within you. That’s why theology and worship belong together. The one isn’t just a headtrip; the other isn’t just emotion.”N.T. Wright

If our understanding of God is poor, our worship will be too. It’s important that our worship comes out of an ever-increasing knowledge of who God is and what he has done for us.

13. Worship should touch our emotions

“We should know and celebrate God with our whole person. While too many Christians neglect to serve God with the mind, others cultivate only their minds and neglect the emotional aspects of worship.”Craig S. Keener

While our worship needs to be grounded in the Word and a right understanding of God, that doesn’t mean that it should be a purely intellectual enterprise. There are times when worship should touch our hearts so dramatically that an emotional response is only natural.

14. Our work can become worship

“Work becomes worship when you dedicate it to God and perform it with an awareness of his presence.”Rick Warren

Everything we do can be an expression of worship. What matters is our posture towards God when we’re doing it. With the right attitude, digging a ditch can be as much an act of worship as attending a church service.

15. Turning our tasks into adoration

“Cause every task of your day to be a sacred ministry to the Lord. However mundane your duties, for you they are a sacrament.”Richard Foster

There are no inconsequential activities. When we live lives of worship, every activity becomes infused with significance. And we turn our daily activities into worship as we offer them to the Lord.

16. We are God’s temple for worship

“There are no unique postures and times and limitations that restrict our access to God. My relationship with God is intimate and personal. The Christian does not go to the temple to worship. The Christian takes the temple with him or her. Jesus lifts us beyond the building and pays the human body the highest compliment by making it His dwelling place, the place where He meets with us.”—Ravi Zacharias

The reason that everything we do can be an act of worship is because God has made each one of us a temple where he dwells through the Holy Spirit. When we become aware of that presence, every moment of our day is sacred.

17. Worship is part of a healthy spiritual life

“But just as your body needs sleep, your soul needs time to rest in God. To learn more about Him. To talk to Him. To worship and praise Him. To fellowship with other brothers and sisters.”Craig Groeschel

Like food and water, worship is a necessary part of human existence. It’s easy to think that we can exist without it because we still exhibit all the outwards signs of life, but that’s not the existence we were created to have. We were created to flourish.

18. We’re transformed by what we worship

“From your heroes you pick up mannerisms and phrases and tones of voice and facial expressions and habits and demeanors and convictions and beliefs. The more admirable the hero is and the more intense your admiration is, the more profound will be your transformation. In the case of Jesus, he is infinitely admirable, and our admiration rises to the most absolute worship. Therefore, when we behold him as we should, the change is profound.”John Piper

Paul reminds the Corinthians that they’re transformed by what they fix our attention on. (2 Cor. 3:18) In this sense, worship is a tool that God is using to transform us. As we focus on glorifying him for his amazing attributes, we begin to reveal the same characteristics. When we worship God we develop such traits as forgiveness, tenderness, justice, righteousness, purity, kindness, and love.

19. Worship is selfless

“The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service.”Billy Graham

 

Worship cannot simply be about singing the songs we enjoy or doing our favorite activities. If that’s all it is, then it’s ultimately something we do for ourselves. By making ourselves living sacrifices, we remove ourselves from the equation and discover a worship that’s grounded in Christ. Worship should be an activity that is teaching us humility—and not an opportunity for self indulgence.

20. The world needs to see our worship

“God directs his people not simply to worship but to sing his praises ‘before the nations.’ We are called not simply to communicate the gospel to nonbelievers; we must also intentionally celebrate the gospel before them.”Timothy J. Keller

Everyone in the world is worshiping something, because their spirits are hungry. For most people, their worship amounts to spiritual junk food. The world is longing to experience something truly worthy of praise. When they see us making ourselves living sacrifices in true worship, they discover the nourishment they’ve been starving for.

Worship: God’s tool for renewal

It would be enough if our worship simply honored and magnified God, but he uses it to edify us as well. Worship prepares us to spend eternity with Christ by drawing us closer to him, making us more aware of his amazing attributes, and conforming us to his image.
