GREAT QUOTES on TRUE 'COMMITMENT'

"Every Christian should be both conservative and radical; 
conservative in preserving the faith and radical in applying it."
- John Stott

"Many Christians 'stall out' in the faith when the call to total 
commitment is received or viewed as something too high or too
 hard to acquire...or they have never been taught that total 
commitment is Christ's demand for all His followers."
- Chip Ingram

"The Christian life is not adding Jesus to one's own way of life 
but renouncing that personal way of life for His and being willing 
to pay whatever cost that may require."
- John MacArthur

"More than once Jesus deliberately addressed certain issues 
that quickly diminished the number of onlookers. It was 
commitment that thinned the ranks."
- Chuck Swindoll

"You never hear Jesus say in Pilate's judgment hall one word 
that would let you imagine that He was sorry that He had 
undertaken so costly a sacrifice for us.  ... you never hear a 
groan or a shriek that looks like Jesus is going back on His commitment."
- Charles Spurgeon

"It costs to be faithful. It cost Abraham the yielding up of his 
only son. It cost Esther to risk her own life. It cost Daniel, 
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego being put into a fiery 
furnace. It cost Stephen death by stoning. It cost Paul his life. 
Does it cost you anything to be faithful to your Lord and King?" 
- Anonymous

"A wife who is 85 percent faithful to her husband is not faithful 
at all. There is no such thing as part-time loyalty to Jesus Christ." 
-Vance Havner
