What is a Quote? – A quote is nothing more than a short thought by man speaking a truth or causing one to think more deeply than he has before.

As some of you may know, I am a quote addict. I have a journal and an Evernote file full of quotes on religion, business, life, parenting, marriage, money and much more. In fact, every morning I text a few friends a challenging quote of the day just to encourage others to expand their thinking and to encourage them.

Below are several of my favorite quotes on religion. They are mean to challenge your thinking. Enjoy.



“Salvation is free… but discipleship will cost you your life.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer


God doesn’t use people simply because they are gifted, but because He is gracious – Wesley Walker


“I find that doing the will of God leaves me with no time for disputing about His plans.” — George MacDonald

“There are only 2 reasons everyone is not a Christian: 1) They do not know a Christian or… 2) They do.” — Author Unknown

“In Jesus’ case, we have the story of the holiest man who ever lived, and yet it was the prostitutes and thieves who adored Him, and the religious who hated His guts.” — Rebecca Manley Pippert
