Everyone has something to say about life. I often use the French saying “C’est la vie”; in English it means “Such is life”. That’s really a way of saying, we never know what to expect in life; sometimes it takes a turn that we did not expect. The truth of the matter is that God gave life to everyone and every human life has a purpose. Take a look at these 21 Christian quotes about life.

Featured Christian Quote About Life: “Christ is not a reservoir but a spring. His life is continual, active and ever passing on with an outflow as necessary as its inflow. If we do not perpetually draw the fresh supply from the living Fountain, we shall either grow stagnant or empty, It is, therefore, not so much a perpetual fullness as a perpetual filling.” (A.B. Simpson)
