The Lord did not give us methods …

“The Lord did not give us methods. He gave us a Person. He did not give us “ten easy steps to evangelism.” He left us the creative, dynamic Person of the Holy Spirit. Only as we are led and directed by Him can there be effective witness in a hostile, violent world.”

-from p.63 of “A Prophet’s Heart” by Charles Brown.

Fix your eyes on Jesus as …

“Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Example, and be ashamed.
Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Savior, and be rescued.
Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Physician, and be made whole.
Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Mentor, and be taught.
Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Comforter, and be encouraged.
Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Strength, and be enabled.
Fix your eyes on Jesus as your Life, and live abundantly forever.”

-from the Introduction, p.10 of “Fix Your Eyes On Jesus” by Anne Ortlund.
