Dave Harvey, Am I Called?: The Summons to Pastoral Ministry
“Today matters because tomorrow can’t be assumed”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

“What we believe about God determines the quality of our marriage.”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
“Do I trust that where I am in life today—no matter how far it is from where I think I should be—can never limit God’s ability to accomplish his will in my life?”
Dave Harvey, Am I Called? (Foreword by Matt Chandler): The Summons to Pastoral Ministry
“Everything in Scripture is either preparation for the Gospel, presentation of the Gospel, or participation in the Gospel.”
Dave Harvey
“Mercy sweetens marriage. Where it is absent, two people flog one another over everything from failure to fix the faucet to phone bills. But where it is present, marriage grows sweeter and more delightful, even in the face of challenges, setbacks, and the persistent effects of our remaining sin.”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
“So we’re tempted to despair—the despair of the not-as-great-as-we-want-to-be. Charles Spurgeon’s epitaph on Alexander could easily describe one way we can go: See Alexander’s tears! He weeps! Yes, he weeps for another world to conquer! Ambition is insatiable! The gain of the whole world is not enough. Surely to become a universal monarch, is to make one’s self universally miserable.13”
Dave Harvey, Rescuing Ambition
“What motivates Olympic athletes to train for years for one event—in some cases, for just seconds of actual competition? It’s the same thing that kept my friend Pete nosing around old bookstores for years. It’s the same thing that makes a person venture out of a comfortable job to start a new business. We see it in the artist who spends day after day in a studio chipping away at a block of stone. Look closely and you’ll find it in the shopper who passes up the good deal in search of the best deal. It’s one of the things that makes us most human. We consciously pursue what we value. It’s not simply a matter of being driven by biology or genetics or environmental conditioning to satisfy instinctive cravings. Rather, we perceive something, prize it at a certain value, then pursue it according to that assigned value because we were created that way. This ability to perceive, prize, and pursue is part of our essential humanness, and it’s the essence of ambition.”
Dave Harvey, Rescuing Ambition
“Marriage is the union of two people who arrive toting the luggage of life. And that luggage always contains sin.”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
“Sin is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God.”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
tags: god, holy, sin
“Let’s face it. If you’re called to pastoral ministry, you’re being called to the local church. It’s where we move from being doughnut lovers to dougnut makers. Is the doughnut shop in your plan?”
Dave Harvey, Am I Called? (Foreword by Matt Chandler): The Summons to Pastoral Ministry
“Blame-shifting is what I do when I basically know I’m guilty and am just trying to convince myself or someone else that maybe I’m not.”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
“A great awareness of one’s sinfulness often stands side by side with great joy and confidence in God.”
Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say "I Do": Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage
“The church is not a career path. It’s a place you go to give your life away.”
Dave Harvey, Am I Called? (Foreword by Matt Chandler): The Summons to Pastoral Ministry
“Too often a man is set aside from ministry because of church politics or vague assessments of deficiencies. And too often, when a man’s character hasn’t stood the test, he remains in ministry by simply rewriting the test, making it about his popularity or prior service.”
Dave Harvey, Am I Called? (Foreword by Matt Chandler): The Summons to Pastoral Ministry
