By    |   Thursday, 30 Apr 2015 09:42 AM

Christian evangelist T.D. Jakes is known for delivering a strong sermon, but believes in speaking to his parishioners in terms they can understand, not just spouting biblical passages.

When it comes to life itself, Jakes has made some memorable statements on the subject. Here are 10 quotes made by Jakes about life:

SPECIAL: Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Amazing Ways

1. "Living on purpose, as I define it, is to become aware that we were all created to serve some specific function in life. Some of these purposes might be lofty, attracting the accolades of the world. Some of these purposes may be down to Earth, such as raising a child, teaching or engaging in some other activity that may not be as acknowledged by society, but is still significant."

2. "I don't know about you, but I couldn't live with life without God."

3. "Come hell or high water you will never take me back to the place I was before. I have been through too much to let life whoop me again. My faith is stronger than it's ever been, my mind is more tenacious than it's ever been, and my soul is more absolute."

4. "You have to recognize as troubles and trials and tests come into your life you have to recognize that there is a God who sits high and looks low and has all power and has all power in his hand and if you want to communicate with the divine you do it by faith

5. Life is about having a healthy balance, notes Jakes's 700 Club biography. "… in order to travel at our maximum velocity, we must balance the power of our intellect with the truth of our instincts."

6. "It is not about you — it's about what God is going to do in your life!"

7. "In order to make this journey — you have to make it without baggage. You can't carry loads of bags with weight on you in order to be free and Jesus gives you an invitation to come unto him. Now, you have to come to him — you will not get rest from anybody else. If you go to anybody else you're going to find more work."

8. "It's not too early to give your life over to the Lord."

9. "Your latter days are supposed to be greater than your former days."

10. "All over this nation, all over this world there are people going to church today and they say they are believers, but until you can take what you've been taught and bring it to the place you gave up — you will never be the radical believer that you need to be for the times in which we live."
