"If we want to be obedient, we must be dedicated to God."
"Obedience multiples worship."
"Every faithful, obedient response you have has a chance to be used in the life of someone else."
"What if God uses you to build the fire, but uses the next generation to light it?"
“A Christian who has David in his bones, Jeremiah in his bloodstream, Paul in his fingertips
and Christ in his heart, will know how much and how little value to put on his own
momentary feelings and the experience of the past week.” -Eugene Peterson
"While we weren't obedient, Jesus was obedient for us."

"When you dedicate your life to God, obedience will follow."
