So, being such an influential author, we thought it would be a good idea to put together 24 of his very best quotes. Enjoy!

1. On forgiveness
"Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free and realising you were the prisoner!"

2. On the creator God
"You weren't an accident. You weren't mass produced. You aren't an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the earth by the Master Craftsman."

3. On prayer
"Prayer is the window that God has placed in the walls of our world. Leave it shut and the world is a cold, dark house. But throw back the curtains and see His light. Open the window and hear His voice. Open the window of prayer and invoke the presence of God in your world."

4. On the fruits of the spirit
"Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek his grace. And then, when this day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest."

5. On God's love
"God loves you simply because He has chosen to do so. He loves you when you don't feel lovely. He loves you when no one else loves you. Others may abandon you, divorce you, and ignore you, but God will love you always. No matter what!"

6. On faith
"Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right."

7. On forgiveness of sin
"Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, "I can clean that if you want." And from the basin of his grace, he scoops a palm full of mercy and washes away our sin."

8. On humility
"The church is never a place to show off. Do your good deeds quietly. Serve; don't seek to be seen."

9. On suffering
"A season of suffering is a small assignment when compared to the reward. Rather than begrudge your problem, explore it. Ponder it. And most of all, use it. Use it to the glory of God."

10. On the Bible
"Though the Bible was written over sixteen centuries by at least forty authors, it has one central theme-salvation through faith in Christ."

11. On worry
"Write today's worries in sand. Chisel yesterday's victories in stone"

12. On seeing God
"We may speak about a place where there are no tears, no death, no fear, no night; but those are just the benefits of heaven. The beauty of heaven is seeing God."

13. On the presence of God
"Don't equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not."

14. On spiritual transformation
"For you who wonder if you've played too long to change, take courage from Jacob's legacy. No man is too bad for God. To transform a riverboat gambler into a man of faith would be no easy task. But for God, it was all in a night's work."

15. On war
"To ask God to prohibit war, then, is to ask him to prohibit the consequence of human behavior. Something he has never been wont to do. As long as there is sin there will be war."

16. On thankfulness
"If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek His grace."

17. On marriage
"God created marriage. No government subcommittee envisioned it. No social organization developed it. Marriage was conceived and born in the mind of God."

18. On leadership
"A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd."

20. On baptism
"Baptism is the initial step of a faithful heart."

21. On being a faithful witness
"To call yourself a child of God is one thing. To be called a child of God by those who watch your life is another thing altogether."

22. On religion
"Give a man religion without reminding him of his filth, and the result will be arrogance in a three-piece suit."

23. On kindness
"Want to snatch a day from the manacles of boredom? Do overgenerous deeds, acts beyond reimbursement. Kindness without compensation. Do a deed for which you cannot be repaid."

24. On heaven
"God never said that the journey would be easy, but He did say that the arrival would be worthwhile."
