Why is it so hard to find good quotes to use as a ministry? We are all familiar with the quotes we choose to use in our preaching and teaching. What we may not realize is that the exact same quote may be used by other people who want to minister successfully. Many people will use the same quote, but rarely do they express it in a way that reflects their heart or passion for their ministry. This is a great opportunity to write your own quote with your own voice, and see how you can use it to move people toward God, or help them get closer to him.
