Nick Vujicic: Teaching the Church How to Fish

Nick Vujicic

Nick Vujicic is an Australian Christian evangelist, author and motivational speaker born with Phocomelia, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of legs and arms. As a child, he struggled mentally, emotionally and physically, but eventually came to terms with his disability. After his mother showed him a newspaper article about a man dealing with a severe disability when he was seventeen, he started to give talks at his prayer group and later founded his non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs. Vujicic has written that he keeps a pair of shoes in his closet due to his belief in miracles.

Key Quotes from Nick Vujicic:

“Most pastors and leaders are visionaries and once we accomplish a goal we’re looking for the next goal and we let the good and excellent things of our life and ministry distract us from the most important things, our walk and our family.”

“God doesn’t love you for what you do, he loves you because you’re his.”

“Protect your walk with Jesus and your family time and learn to delegate then don’t pretend that you know exactly what you’re doing.”

“If God can use a man with no legs and arms to be his hands and feet then he can use any willing heart.”

“It’s not about how many come to our church, it’s you being faithful with God’s calling in the flock that he’s given you.”

“The church is disabled. We don’t know how to fish.”

“Even when we don’t get a miracle, we can be a miracle for someone else.”

“What are we teaching this next generation, how much scripture are we actually giving them to feed themselves?”

“Many people don’t know how to evangelize because they’re afraid of the questions that are going to come and they don’t know the answers to the questions.”

“When I get to heaven Jesus is going to look over my shoulder and say ‘Well done good and faithful servant but who did you bring with you?”’
