Bishop TD Jakes was in Nigeria and he ministered at the just concluded Spirit-Life Conference which held at House on the Rock,  Lekki, Lagos. Below are some of his quotes during his ministration.

  1. The rejection of people should make you cling to God for stability.
  2. Your image of God has everything to do with where you came from. Culture affects Christianity.
  3. You can’t get down on your knees and pray for God to do the work, while your actions do not align with the work.
  4. Your greatest fear is to finally get your moment and not be ready. Preparation is never time wasted. You’ve gotta be ready to build your ark before the rain ever falls.
  5. Stop trying to get people to invest in what you, yourself, haven’t invested in.
  6. The difference between a goal and a dream is a date.
  7. What you shape out of your life is a result of what has been modeled in front of you.
  8. You can teach what you know, but you will reproduce what you are.
  9. Don’t chase friends. Don’t chase crowds. Don’t try to run down Judas… let the chips fall where they may.
  10. God never asked a man to do anything without a pattern. God will expose you to greatness so you can stare at it and get a pattern.
  11. Your memory is more important than a mentor and a model… our memory must be free from hate, grudge and bitterness… we cut whatever we remember…
  12. If we are not ready, other people will build their dreams on our land. If you sleep whilst other men are working, you’ll be left behind.
  13. To compete in a global economy, we must have something that we are not good at… UNITY!!!
  14. Success is when you’ve got a vision that’s in your head, behind your eyes; when what you imagine comes face to face with you.
  15. What black folks do the most is have church… we can dance… Bible says ‘like children dancing in the market place’. We are better at having church than having life. All our oppressors never minded us having church… whilst we were having church they were having life. Don’t use faith to anesthisize your situation.
