Max Lucado quotes

You change your life by changing your heart.

Initially, when I first became a Christian and got into ministry, my thought was that God existed to make my life better and to take me to Heaven. Now I realize that it is not about me at all. It is all about God and that He did this to display His plan to restore the Earth to the Garden of Eden state.

A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.

Lower your expectations of earth. This isn't heaven, so don't expect it to be.

There is a time for risky love. There is a time for extravagant gestures. There is a time to pour out your affections on one you love. And when the time comes - seize it, don't miss it.

The meaning of life. The wasted years of life. The poor choices of life. God answers the mess of life with one word: 'grace.'

A nation is blessed when it has godly leaders.

God meets daily needs daily. Not weekly or annually. He will give you what you need when it is needed.

Grace is God as heart surgeon, cracking open your chest, removing your heart - poisoned as it is with pride and pain - and replacing it with his own.

Be a doer, not a stewer.

God is not troubled by one who is conservative or liberal, and He certainly never inclines His ear toward a donkey or an elephant.

God will use whatever he wants to display his glory. Heavens and stars. History and nations. People and problems.

It seems to me that election season is just a Petri dish for anger and cynicism.

A season of suffering is a small assignment when compared to the reward. Rather than begrudge your problem, explore it. Ponder it. And most of all, use it. Use it to the glory of God.

Become a worry-slapper. Treat frets like mosquitoes. Do you procrastinate when a bloodsucking bug lights on your skin? 'I'll take care of it in a moment.' Of course you don't! You give the critter the slap it deserves. Be equally decisive with anxiety.

Compassion in evangelical churches is out of balance. When I talk about it, I get a lot of glazed expressions.

God's glory is the big news of the Bible, and my desire is that it would be all about me, but really it's all about God's glory.

I don't believe our works save us, but I believe they follow us into heaven and bring glory to God.

I think that a church should be setting the pace for social justice.

Sentences are like just caught fish. Spunky today, stinky tomorrow.
