New Breed of Believers Don’t Settle — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Face to Face with God”

“Today there is a new breed of believer. They may look quite different from each other, but they are known by their love and faith. They just won’t settle for what has been. While there is great admiration for those who have gone before, this group won’t stop long enough to build them a monument or memorial. In fact, this generation knows that the best way to honor past accomplishments is by building on top of their breakthroughs.”

How Old and New Covenants Impact Behavior – A Quote by Paul Manwaring in “What on Earth is Glory”

“The difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant is not that the first restrained our behavior and the second did not. Both introduced a law that restrained, but the first was an external law and the second was internal.”

You Can Confront Leaders (even God) without Them being Dishonored — A Quote by Danny Silk in “Culture of Honor”

“Abraham then proceeded to ask more questions: ‘Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?’ God stood there, being confronted by Abraham, and responded, ‘Yeah, you are right. I would spare the city for fifty righteous men.’ This is profound! God is confrontable! It is unusual, because we’ve come to know ‘leadership’ as unconfrontable. We classically interpret confrontation of leadership as dishonor.”

Embrace Diversity and Uniqueness – A Quote by Paul Manwaring in “What on Earth is Glory”

“We… need to stop comparing and disqualifying ourselves because we aren’t attracted to the same things and don’t have the same beauty as the next person. Actually, we do have the same beauty—as sons and daughters, we are all clothed in the royal priestly robes of Heaven and share its beauty. But that beauty is so rich and diverse that God needs all of us to display different aspects and dimensions of it. As we learn to behold the beauty of the Lord and grow in the intimacy to which it draws us, we will no longer feel threatened by what other people have and instead appreciate it. We will also discover our own beauty and begin to put it on display.”
