Amen Corner

If we are going to be successful, we have to take our stand for God and let the world and everyone know we are on the Lord’s side.

I have great respect for the woman who started out with a poker during the war.  She heard the enemy was coming, and she went out to resist them.  When someone asked her what she could do with the poker, she said she would at least let them know what side she was on.  And that is what we want.

-D. L. Moody

No man has a right to do as he pleases unless he pleases to do right.

It is a burning, irrefutable fact that the glowing, growing churches are the going churches which believe in and practice evangelism.

-Hyman Appelman

If Christopher Columbus had turned back, no one would have blamed him – but no one would have remembered him, either.

**********

When people play fast and loose with the eternal principles of righteousness and forget God, then the nation, the church, the family, and the individual go the way of defeat and death.

-George W. Truett

**********

A sermon’s length is not its strength.  It may be very much its weakness.  It is a pity to weary the head when we should win the heart.  Some are long in their sermons because they are short in their studies.

The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.

-John Philpot Curran

**********

Drink no wine, and you’ll not drink too much.

Do not let not being able to do something better keep you from doing what you can.

-Vance Havner

**********

He is safe who is where God puts him.

God never hurries.  There are no deadlines against which He must work.  Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.

-A. W. Tozer

**********

He who wants to move mountains starts by carrying away small stones.

Groanings that cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused.

-Charles Spurgeon

**********

Don’t put on so much coal as to put out the fire.  You can lay so many books on the brain as to bury it, and teach children so much that they learn nothing, and preach so long that the people forget all that was said.
