“Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“God doesn't bless us just to make us happy; He blesses us to make us a blessing.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“The Christian who walks with the Lord and keeps constant communion with Him will see many reason for rejoicing and thanksgiving all day long.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“When it seems as if God is far away, remind yourself that He is near. Nearness is not a matter of geography. God is everywhere. Nearness is likeness. The more we become like the Lord, the nearer He is to us.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“A good book is like a seed: it produces fruit that has in it seed for more fruit. It is not a picture on the wall; it is a window that invies us to wider horizons.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“The ability to calm your soul and wait before God is one of the most difficult things in the Christian life. Our old nature is restless... the world around us is frantically in a hurry. But a restless heart usually leads to a reckless life.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“We have little control over the circumstances of life. We can't control the weather or the economy, and we can't control what other people say about or do to us. There is only one area where we have control--we can rule the kingdom inside. The heart of every problem is the problem in the heart.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Too Soon to Quit!: Fifteen Achievers from the Bible Teach Us How to Keep Going and How to Finish Well
“Never doubt in the darkness what God has told you in the light.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“At least in the world we know, it takes trials to make something beautiful and useful out of the raw materials of life. The student’s struggle with truth develops his intelligence; the athlete’s struggle with his records and his opponents helps to develop his muscles and coordination; the musician’s struggle with more difficult pieces develops his playing skill; and the soul’s struggle with the trials of life helps to build character.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Why Us?: When Bad Things Happen to God's People
“I will be satisfied to the extent that I see everything I have as a gift from God. Here is the truth: Everything you have – your money, talent, friendships, marriage, children, material possessions, health, home, bike, car, even the country you live in – is a gift from God that He had chosen out of His generous nature to give you.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Satisfied (Ecclesiastes): Looking for the Answer to the Meaning of Life
“The school of suffering never graduates any students, so ask God to teach to you the lessons He wants you to learn.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“One thing about change hasn't changed: it still fascinates some people, frightens others, and provides a good living for a prophetic minority.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“Yield your heart and life to Jesus Christ. Be faithful to Him, no matter what men may do. The important thing is not the praise of men; it is the approval of God.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“God doesn’t want us to ignore the past; the past should be a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ
“That this complex universe should appear by accident out of nothing from a “big bang” is as probable as the works of Shakespeare resulting from an explosion in a printing plant.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Basic (Genesis 1-11): Believing the Simple Truth of God's Word
“The modern world is also fascinated by innovation but scornful to tradition. Like the Athenians in Paul's day, many people do nothing but get involved in the latest fads (Acts 17:21). People stand in line to purchase the latest gimmicks, and no sooner do they learn how to use them than the manufacturers declare the models obsolete. Innovation! Progress!”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Too Soon to Quit!: Fifteen Achievers from the Bible Teach Us How to Keep Going and How to Finish Well
“You feel like quitting, like giving up. You can’t understand why the road doesn’t get easier, why God doesn’t remove the stones and straighten the path. If God did that, you might never get to the top, because the bumps are what you can climb on.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“Before we can minister to others, we must permit God to minister to us.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Comforted
“Many people try to avoid looking back. To be sure, there is a wrong way to look back; it is wrong to look back at past sins and failures and defeats. That can only make you fail even more today. But it is good to look back to see where we have been and what the Lord has done in us and through us.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“But it is not the length of life that counts—it is the depth and strength of life.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days

Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Comforted
“The mind grows by taking in, but the heart grows by giving out.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Why Us?: When Bad Things Happen to God's People
“Yesterday God helped me, Today He’ll do the same. How long will this continue? Forever—praise His name!”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“In Greek the name Christ is χριστός (christos). The first letter looks like the English letter X. Every vocation has its shorthand, and those in the church used the letter chi (χ) to represent Christ in words that began with “Christ-.” So “Xmas” is an honorable abbreviation for Christmas. It was not intended to take Christ out of Christmas”
Warren W. Wiersbe, C Is for Christmas: The History, Personalities, and Meaning of Christ's Birth
“God has ordained that His people live by promises and not by explanations.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Satisfied (Ecclesiastes): Looking for the Answer to the Meaning of Life
“When we walk by sight, we calculate everything from the human perspective, and this always leads to discouragement; but when we walk by faith, God comes into the equation, and that changes the results.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Successful (1 Samuel): Attaining Wealth That Money Can't Buy
“We cannot learn patience by reading a book or hearing a lecture. The only way we can learn patience is by going through the trials that God assigns to us. The trials of life are the tools God uses to mature us, to build our faith, and to get us to trust the Spirit and not the flesh.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, The Strategy of Satan
“God doesn’t promise to remove the stones from the path, but He does promise to make them stepping-stones and not stumbling blocks. He promises to help us climb higher because of the difficulties of life.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Bumps Are What You Climb On, The: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“The virgin birth of Christ is a key doctrine; for if Jesus Christ is not God come in sinless human flesh, then we have no Savior. Jesus had to be”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Comforted
