“The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household.” -John 4:53
-excerpts from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon
“and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.” -Ephesians 6:19-20
I want to be more concerned about my neighbor’s eternal condemnation in hell than I am about my own embarrassment in telling him about it. -Burk Parsons via Twitter
“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?” -Matthew 16:25-26
“Your perspective of earthly embers changes when you have been saved from an eternal inferno.” -David Platt at #T4G2016
“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow Me.’ Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.” -John 1:43-44
Who’s your Philip? And will you take him to the throne of grace, knowing that Philip’s only hope is Jesus? And will you ask Jesus to go find Philip–to call him and make him His own? -Anthony Vance
Andrew demonstrated the priority of genuine discipleship and started with his family. He introduced his brother Peter to Jesus. Peter became a more prominent, public figure, but Andrew–through his private testimony–was used to bring him to Christ.
We may never be a Peter, but may we always be an Andrew!

And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at Your word I will let down the nets.” And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking. –Luke 5:5-6
These disciples didn’t put these fish in the net. God put them there! Just be faithful in launching out your net.
