Key Quotes From Robby Gallaty
“I always like to pause and say sobriety without Christ is a dead end street. I tried it before. You need something, someone outside of yourself to set you free from the sin that captures you and controls you.”
“I put the little bit of faith I had in as much of Jesus as I knew, and it was enough to be radically saved.”
“For two years, David Platt and I met twice a week to memorize Scripture, study the Bible. And people say, what was it like to learn from David Platt? Did you talk about the finer tenets of systematic theology and eschatology? Yes, we did, but I don’t remember really any of that. I remember how he lived his life.”
“I’m the product of discipleship, you know, that’s why I’m so passionate about discipleship.”
“Exponential growth, it’s not magic. I tell people it’s math. Really, Jesus was the first, ‘network marketer.’ I mean, he knew the power of investing in a few.”
“[When I came to Long Hollow], we were putting people in the church as fast through the front door as they were going out the back door. It was like this escalator evangelism, I call it.”
