"What man is a man who does not leave the world better"----Quote told by Stanley from the movie Kingdom of Heaven.
Hear are my favorite quotes from Andy Stanleys opening session entitled "On Your Mark"
Andy Stanley used passages from Joshua 23:8-15 and 5:13-15. What a great session to open it up.
"God has not come to be a part of our story but instead to see if we will be a part of His story"
How true is this. We are called to follow Gods will. God is not called to follow our will.
"We must not be leaders in authority but instead leaders under authority"
We must submit to the leadership of God.
"God takes full responsibility for the life wholly devoted to Him"
"Its not about who is for or against you but about who you are for"
"Our responsibility is to be obedient to God under all circumstances"
When we arent obedient to God then we are sinning. Because delayed obedience is sin.
"Let God have maximum access to your leadership and to all you have"
"Living to make my mark is to small a thing to give my life to"
Meaning we cant spend our life trying to make our mark but instead we should be living to make Gods mark.
"Get in the perfect postion for God to use you"
