10 Rick Warren Quotes

  1. God’s Christmas gift to you has three qualities that make it unique. First, it is the most expensive gift you’ll ever receive. It’s priceless. Jesus paid for it with his life. Second, it’s the only gift you’ll ever receive that will last forever. Finally, it is an extremely practical gift—one you’ll use every day for the rest of your life. Interested? Rick Warren
  2. God wanted to communicate to us, so he became one of us. He didn’t send an angel or a prophet or a politician or an ambassador. He came himself. If you really want people to know how much you love them, you can’t send a representative to communicate it. You have to say it personally. That’s what God did at Christmas. Rick Warren
  3. Every time you do what you want to do instead of what God tells you to do, you are acting like you are God. That war with God creates enormous conflict and stress in your mind, on your body, and in your relationships. Rick Warren
  4. No matter what you do in life, some people aren’t going to like it. And the brighter the light, the more bugs it attracts. Rick Warren
  5. The reality is that there will never be peace in the world until there’s peace within nations. Rick Warren
  6. The symptoms of being at war with God are easy to spot: irritability, a quick temper, insecurity, impatience, manipulation, arrogance and boasting, holding grudges, and many other attitudes and habits that the Bible calls the “works of the flesh.” Rick Warren
  7. Christmas, the season of “peace on earth, good will toward men,” is the perfect time to offer the gift of grace to others, while celebrating the grace God has shown you. Who do you need to make peace with this Christmas? Rick Warren
  8. In Jesus, your past is forgiven, you get a purpose for living, and you get a home in heaven. Why celebrate Christmas if you’re not going to open the best gift of all? Rick Warren
  9. Any lasting solution must start in the heart, and only God can transform hearts. Rick Warren
  10. Sin is habit forming. Rick Warren
