One-liners

These “Christian One-liners” that showed up in my e-mail inbox recently. Some I agree with and some I don’t… and it got me musing:

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited
Until you try to sit in their pews..
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Many folks want to serve God,
But only as advisers. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

It is easier to preach ten sermons
Than it is to live one.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose,
But mosquitoes come close.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

When you get to your wit’s end,
You’ll find God lives there.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

People are funny;
They want the Front of the bus, the Middle of the road,
And Back of the church.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Opportunity may knock once,
But temptation bangs on the front door forever.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Quit griping 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
..

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God Himself doesn’t propose to judge a man until he is dead.
So why should you?

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Some minds are like concrete
Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Peace starts with a smile. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

I don’t know why some people change churches;
What difference does it make which one you stay home from?

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

A lot of church members singing ‘Standing on the Promises’
Are just sitting on the premises.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Don’t put a question mark where God put a period.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Forbidden fruits create many jams. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God doesn’t call the qualified,
He qualifies the called.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God loves everyone,
But probably prefers ‘fruits of the spirit’ over ‘religious nuts!’

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

He who angers you, controls you! 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats! 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Prayer: Don’t give God instructions, just report for duty!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us. 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The Will of God never takes you to where the
Grace of God will not protect you.
 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

We don’t change the message,
The message changes us.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

So, did any of these strike you as especially true in your experience? Which ones?
