Attracts

“When the church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it. It is then that the world is made to listen to her message, though it may hate it at first.”

― D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Cross

“To be a follower of the Crucified means, sooner or later, a personal encounter with the cross. And the cross always entails loss. The great symbol of Christianity means sacrifice and no one who calls himself a Christian can evade this stark fact.”

― Elisabeth Elliot

Restlessness

“Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.”

― Elisabeth Elliot

Early in his film career, Chris Hemsworth showed himself to be an up and coming star, with notable roles in the Star Trek reboot, the Red Dawn remake, and Snow White and the Huntsman, a retelling of the classic fairy tale. But the Australian’s notoriety hit Hollywood Valhalla when he was cast as the Norse god and Marvel superhero Thor. Seven Marvel films later, the married father of three could be forgiven if he let all the worldly success go to his head.

But there’s not much chance of that now.

Forgetting

“You may fear that the Lord has passed you by, but it is not so: he who counts the stars, and calls them by their names, is in no danger of forgetting his own children.”
