The great, God-blessed churches in the world today have one common characteristic: an insistence upon an exposition of God's infallible Word.— O. S. Hawkins
The most strong O. S. Hawkins quotes to get the best of your day
The motivating factor behind God's redemptive plan for every man and woman is His love for us. He not only loves us, He so loves us!
Real Christianity is lovely. There is a quality about a Spirit-filled, radiant Christian that draws and attracts others and causes them to enjoy favor with all the people. The truth is that the gospel is not nearly as offensive as some of its proponents!
What makes a church great in the eyes of God? Participation, proclamation, preservation, and propagation. Every church ought to exhibit all four.
The principal hindrance to the advancement of the kingdom of God is greed.
It is the chief obstacle to heaven-sent revival. It seems that when the back of greed is broken, the human spirit soars into regions of unselfishness. I believe that it is safe to say there can be no continuous revival without 'hilarious' giving. And I fear no contradiction: wherever there is 'hilarious' giving there will soon be revival!
As we look at the chapters of Daniel, we recognize that the words of Daniel 1:21 ring true today: "Thus Daniel continued...." Daniel continued through a culture unlike his own; one that lost its way. Today, you and I are living in a culture that's losing its way. It's good to know that just as in Daniel's day, God is looking for men and women of integrity to help confront in love a culture that's losing its way and to point it back to him.
Daniel's message of hope and help is still the good news of God's grace.
We call it the gospel today. It still has the power to impact lives and transform cultures. Paul referred to the gospel as the "power of God" [Romans 1:16] and chose a word from which we derive our word "dynamite" to describe it. It's this power - not pickets, petitions, protests or politics - that's our only hope today.
Divine opportunities are all around you every day.
Make a conscious effort today to show kindness to someone.
We must be sure to be governed by inner principle and not outer pressure.
We all have a private world in which we live;
that's the place where nobody comes; alone with our secret thoughts. Our own spouses oftentimes don't know what we're thinking. In our private worlds, it's only you and the Lord, who searches our hearts and knows our anxious thoughts.
Men and women, boys and girls, are still bowing to the image of peer pressure out on their own Plain of Dura every week in every city of America.
