Christian one liners

Someone sent me an e-mail with some Christian one liners. You may have seen these before, but I thought they were funny and in many of them, there is a lot of truth. Enjoy these!


Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisers.
It's easier to preach ten sermons than to live one.
When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.
Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on the front door forever.
Quit complaining about your church. If it was perfect, you couldn't belong.
If a church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.
Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
A lot of church members singing 'Standing on the promises' are just sitting on the premises.
We're called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.
Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.
Don't put a question mark where God put a period.
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.
He who angers you, controls you.
The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.
You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.

I love these. At school there is one posted in the ladies room: When you are down to nothing, God is up to something.

I read that every day.

I like these! I remember most of them from when I used to change the church sign. They were in a book we had for church signs. :)
