Timothy Keller

Prayer is a conversation that leads to an encounter with God… We must not settle for an informed mind without an engaged heart. ~ Tim Keller in Prayer, p165

“Now, what happens if you eliminate anything from the Bible that offends your sensibility and crosses your will? If you pick and choose what you want to believe and reject the rest, how will you ever have a God who can contradict you? You won’t! You’ll have …A God, essentially, of your own making, and not a God with whom you can have a relationship and genuine interaction. Only if your God can say things that outrage you and make you struggle (as in a real friendship or marriage!) will you know that you have gotten hold of a real God and not a figment of your imagination. So an authoritative Bible is not the enemy of a personal relationship with God. It is the precondition for it” ~ Tim Keller in Reason For God

“Healing Prayer is part of the normal Christian life. It should not be elevated above any other ministry in the community of faith, nor should it be undervalued; Rather, it should be kept in proper balance. It is simply a normal aspect of what it means to live under the reign of God.” ~Richard Foster in Prayer

In some way, suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice. ~ Viktor Frankl in Man’s Search For Meaning

Live as if you  were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now! ~ Viktor Frankl in Man’s Search For Meaning

Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life. ~ Victor Frankl in Man’s Search For Meaning
