Scripture never tells you to pray for humility. Instead, God says "Humble yourself!" Humility is a daily personal choice. Your humility is best seen in how you treat those you disagree with Humility isn't thinking less of yourself It's thinking of yourself less, & more of others
Coming to you from Irvinglascolinasvalleyranch or whatever this is…I’m actually across the street from our old home when we moved back from Arkansas. ANYWAY, it’s great to be here for @NAMB_SBC @_SBTC @SendNetworkSBTC and we ask you to #pray for us as we continue our work here.

Embrace what God is doing. Don't fight it. pastorrick.com/embrace-what-g…
When has treating people with contempt or derision ever improved a situation? When has it ever worked on you? Never. Contempt just deepens conflict, creates resentment & pushes people farther away from each other & a solution. God insists "Show respect to EVERYONE" 1 Peter 2:17
The things you wish were most removed from your life are often what God uses to shape you & make you into who he wants you to be. He wants to use that problem for good in your life. There’s something more important than your pain - what you’re learning from that pain. @RickWarren
The tradition of the dead has no authority whatsoever over any Baptist church whatsoever. “A living faith must experience a growing understanding of truth and must be continually interpreted and related to the needs of each new generation.” BFM 1963 It’s a Baptist thing.

Listen, if you want to defend the inspiration, inerrancy, and power of Holy Scripture, I am right there with you, every single day. But, if you want to impose your own personal interpretation, I am dead set opposed to you, every single day. #SupremaScriptura #ReformationDay2022

Really privileged to meet and chat with @RickWarren on behalf of @SpurgeonCollege as well as seeing his amazing library hidden behind his bookcases. A day I shall not forget in a hurry

Some guy is suing Texas Pete hot sauce because it isn't made in Texas. His life is going to be absolutely wrecked when he next turns his attention to Moon Pies.

Replacement theory is a deceitful tool used by generations of fear-mongering, power-seeking politicians of every kind. Study history! 100s of examples Hitler used it to delude people into becoming Nazis. Haman used it to steal political power. (Read book of Esther) It's not new
Anytime anyone stirs fear in you, it's for THEIR benefit. Don't be manipulated! 365 times God commands us to FEAR NOT! One for each day The Spirit of fear is never the Spirt of God! 2 Tim. 1:7 “God has NOT GIVEN us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power & love & self-control!”
In decades of selfless service to pastors & churches, @davidsdockery & @OSHawkins have modeled warmhearted love, moral integrity, wise leadership brilliant minds, biblical depth & Christlike character. Thank you Trustees for choosing these Distinguished Alumni to serve our @SWBTS
The mark of maturity is the ability to delay gratification. @RickWarren

Premier Radio (UK) had me tape a tribute to Queen Elizabeth for their stations I loved her annual Christmas messages where she'd publicly share the depth of her personal faith in Jesus. She never wavered in her Christian faith, in spite of all she faced in 7 decades of leadership
43 yrs ago I preached my 1st sermon to the 1st service of Saddleback church, called "The Beginning of a Miracle!" I shared the specific PROMISES of God we would base the new church on. Today, as my LAST message as Senior Pastor, I'll re-preach that 1st message! Watch online
Dear @richardblackaby, I'm so sad to hear about Marilyn's inoperable cancer. I'm praying. I was just a kid living on the campus of Golden Gate when your mom and dad were students there. My parents were both seminary staff at that time and loved your folks.
Today I was going to be videotaped re-teaching the first message I preached in 1980 that started Saddleback. But a bomb squad cleared our 120 acre campus to sweep all building for a threat that came in. Evidently someone wanted me to go out with a bang. Not the 1st time in 43 yrs
I’m encouraged by how many pastoral training courses are using The Way of the Dragon or the Way of the Lamb. I hope it helps spur a deeper conversation about the way from above vs. the way from below (Jas. 3:13ff.).

To my fellow pastors: You don’t have to say it all in one sermon. The feeling that you need to “say it all” is often a sign of impatience with your congregation. Remember, a sermon is one part of an ongoing conversation with your people. Be patient. Bear with them in love.

Congratulations to star defensive end @JT_Tuimoloau for being signed as a "PURPOSE DRIVEN NIL ATHLETE" at Ohio State football! I'm proud of JT, @cohesionohio & @LiveLikeLindy for creating ways to give back to your community and for modeling unselfishness. I support you all!
It's a process for sure, but "Purpose Driven Life" took me from frustration to fulfillment. "Are you wondering what God’s will is for your life? Look at your abilities. They’re your road map; they point you in the direction you should go." RW pastorrick.com/your-abilities… @RickWarren

God always answers every prayer, but his answers vary. When your request isn't right, God says NO. When the timing isn't right, God says SLOW! When YOU are not right, God says GROW! But when you & your request & your timing are all right God says GO! Hear Daily Hope online!

Every pastor needs to read @chrisnye‘s #brilliant essay on a devious distraction to Christlike ministry. Chris offers great wisdom on this seductive trap christianitytoday.com/ct/2022/july-w… I’ve counseled too many pastors who lost their credibility, power & anointing due to this temptation.
Brian, there's never been any statement in the Baptist Faith&Message on 'ordination' because 1) The word isn't in the New Testament 2) Baptists have never agreed on its meaning & significance. Both Herschel Hobbs & Adrian Rogers (2 chairmen of BF&Ms ) told me that's the reason.
@RickWarren Thank you for your tweeting the truth. According to Revelation 5:9 and 7:9 racial differences will exist in heaven.

@RickWarren I’m amazed by how many Christians on this thread seem to hsve not read Revelation 7:9.

Never be enamored by the claim “New York Times Bestselling Author!” On a slow-selling wk, ANY book might make that list for 1 WEEK by selling just a few thousand copies. Then Publishers put “NYT Bestselling Author” on their other book covers for the next 20 yrs. It’s deceptive
“We live in the world, but we do not fight in the same way the world fights. We fight with weapons that are different from those the world uses. Our weapons have power from God that can destroy false strongholds.” 2 Cor. 10:3-4
You cannot win any spiritual battle using worldly weapons. Christ's weapons were love, truth, forgiveness, sacrifice, and his death on the Cross. Read 2 Corinthians 10:3-4
Every true saint throughout history has always lived counter-cultural, and therefore they were misunderstood.
In Heaven, YOU will be a minority! Get used to it. Most Christ-followers in the world don’t look like you, think like you, or vote like you. They’re saved by grace thru faith, Jesus-lovers from every era of time & place If diversity scares you, you’ll hate heaven. Rev. 5:9
"Blessed are those who defend justice and do what is right at all times." Psalm 106:3 (GW)
Young ministry leaders, no one is self made. Honor eaders who have paved the way for you and opened doors for you. @_DavidChadwick mentored me. @Clayton_king got me started in ministry in 1999. @RickWarren has mentored me. Norm Geisler & @scotmcknight taught me. THX U

Love you back Maurice! Thank you for your kind words and shout out. I dedicated that book to all bi-vocational pastors and to seminary professors like you. You guys are the heroes! @DrMauricePugh Still a nice read #purposedrivenchurch instagram.com/p/CgC9UFQuCxQ/
You've heard it said: "Love the sinner & hate their sin" I'd rather: Love everyone & hate MY OWN sin. I don't know how some find so much time to condemn others. Do they never sin? "Whatever measure you use to judge others will be used to measure how you're judged" Jesus
When you live with grief, you can't afford to waste any emotional energy on petty, picky, prejudiced, or pugnacious people. Forgive them & forget them and move on.

My true gratitude to you friends for your kind words, sympathetic hearts, and loving prayers. Right now 3 generations of my family are zip-lining down a mountain together! My big thrill is reading Twitter. Ha! #DontGetCovidOnVacation
Pro athletes posting videos of themselves working out is kinda funny. Like, bro, that's just you doing your job. I'm gonna post long videos of me doing sermon prep at my desk and be like: Back in the lab. 📚 Train more. Win more. See ya on Sunday. 🏋️‍♂️💪🏆

Every summer I take 3 generations of my family on a travel vacation somewhere fun. When covid hit in 2020 & 21 we all decided to stay home for 2 yrs This week we resumed our travel vacations! On Day 3 I was taken to an ER... with covid! Now Papa is quaranteening while they play.
My patience with mean or angry or judgmental folks increased greatly when a friend taught me to stop asking (in my mind) "What's WRONG with you?" and start asking (in my mind) "What HAPPENED to you?" What made you so angry or mean? Hurt people hurt other people
One of the brightest minds & clearest voices of this generation: @JaminGoggin. Read "The Way of the Dragon or Way of the Lamb" & everything else he & @KyleStrobel write! So proud of his Aberdeen PhD. Jamin grew up at Saddleback & served as one of our pastors for years. #Kristin
We're all are like tubes of toothpaste. Whatever's inside you comes out when you're squeezed under pressure. Am I filled with anger or graciousness?
To all you dear friends in Canada: Happy Canada Day! Rick Warren
If I'm filled with myself, almost anything can irritate me. When I'm filled with Jesus, almost nothing can irritate me. Anger reveals the conflict inside you. (James 4:1) Kindness reveals peace inside you. (Prov.14:30)
