Sword Of The Lord   ~   February 24, 2017

The best remedy for a sick church is to put it on a soul-winning diet.   -T.J. Bach

It is utterly false to suppose that the Word of the Lord, preached by a coldhearted, unanointed preacher who preaches in human wisdom and for selfish purposes, will bring in proper fruit the same as if preached by one whose heart is set aflame by the Holy Spirit.  It takes the power of God to preach the Word of God.  The Word of God is not a sword of man; it is the Sword of the Spirit.  -John R. Rice

The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.    -George Washington

Samson with the Holy Spirit upon him could take the jawbone of an ass and lay dead a thousand Philistines.  Samson without the Holy Spirit was as weak as a newborn babe.  And so it is with the church.  Without the Holy Spirit, you are as sounding brass and tinkling cymbals, simply four walls and a roof, a pipe organ and a preacher to do a little stunt on Sunday morning and evening.  -Billy Sunday

There is one thing worse than not coming to church, and that is to come and do nothing about the message one hears.  James tells us that hearing without doing means self-deception. (1:22)  -Vance Havner

I am very profitably engaged in reading the Bible.  Take all of this Book on reason that you can and the balance by faith, and you will live and die a better man.  -Abraham Lincoln

He who is God’s enemy should not be your friend.
