Purpose

You weren’t an accident. You weren’t mass produced. You aren’t an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted and lovingly positioned on the Earth by the Master Craftsman.
Max Lucado

It is better to have faith in a cause that will ultimately succeed than to succeed in a cause that will ultimately fail.
Bobby Bowden

Every man is born with the ability to do something well. This is what the Lord intended him to do. Using that ability – that’s what life is all about.
George Allen

God requires a faithful fulfillment of the merest trifle given us to do, rather than the most ardent aspiration to things to which we are not called.
St. Francis de Sales

What men call training and preparation, God calls the end. God’s end is to enable me to see that He can walk on the waves of the chaos of my life just now. If we have a further end in view, we do not pay sufficient attention to the immediate present: if we realize that obedience is the end, then each moment as it comes is precious.
Oswald Chambers

The Power of Obedience

Understanding comes after obedience.
Catherine Marshall

If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
Deuteronomy 28:13

Sin is not hurtful because it is forbidden, but it is forbidden because it is hurtful. Nor is a duty beneficial because it is commanded, but it is commanded because it is beneficial.
Benjamin Franklin

There is a reason why some have power and some do not. And it is not because God is a respecter of persons. Favor is a direct result of faith, and faith comes by obedience.
A.A. Allen

He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored.
Proverbs 13:18

Obedience

God does not call us to be successful, but to be obedient.
Billy Graham

Obedience is the child of Trust.
John Climacus

Obedience to God is our job. The results of that obedience are God’s.
Elisabeth Elliot

God doesn’t applaud position; He applauds obedience. His delight, love and favor equally rest on all who follow Him in obedience, regardless of whether obedience leads them to hidden places or public places.
