Francis Chan Inspirational Quotes: 10 Uplifting Sayings From the Evangelical Christian

By    |   Friday, 15 May 2015 11:40 PM

Christian Evangelist Francis Chan has a number of messages for Christians around the world. Many of these focus on being pro-active in faith, not merely going through the motions and assuming that you can learn the answers to God’s plan just from reading the Bible.

Chan was quoted in an article from the website faithstreet.com, in which he stated “You see, spiritual knowledge isn’t just about intellect…you don’t get to know things of God just through pure intellect and just through studying enough.”

His approach has reached people in just about every country and has earned Chan quite a following of people looking to be inspired in their daily Christian lives, particularly during a time when there is so much in the world to make people look at glasses through half empty eyes.

While Chan’s messages can be blunt and can call Christians out for their apathy, he also has plenty of uplifting things to say about faith as well.

So, what are some other inspiring words of wisdom from Chan? His best-selling books, “Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God” and “Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity and the Things We’ve Made Up” cover the subjects in-depth.

1. “There are periods that we forget that in the pursuit of fruit, that if we just abide in Him, then fruitfulness is a guarantee.”

2. “Our God listens to us. Our God is a living God. He's not a block of wood you made up that's not going to answer you. My God listens to me. He answers me.”

3. “I want the joy of knowing that I am doing something with my life, the joy of battle.”

4. “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.”

5. “The world needs Christians who don't tolerate the complacency of their own lives.”

6. “Joy is something that we have to choose and then work for.”

7. “We have to believe it enough that it changes how we live.”

8. “Christians today like to play it safe. We want to put ourselves in situations where we are safe 'even if there is no God.' But if we truly desire to please God, we cannot live that way.”

9. “The concept of downsizing so that others might upgrade is biblical, beautiful...and nearly unheard of. We either close the gap or don't take the words of the Bible literally.”

10. “True faith means holding nothing back; it bets everything on the hope of eternity”
