Too many of our sermons are like a supper of leftovers – they have been too long away from the fire! God forgive the preacher who expects results from a ministry that has not been touched by the fire of God for weeks or even years! -John R. Rice
When you teach salvation by grace through faith, that one is saved simply by trusting Jesus Christ, some call that “easy believism.” But you will not find that expression in the Bible. That is a man-made expression.
It is not easy to get one to trust Jesus Christ, Him alone, and nothing else for salvation. As a matter of fact, that may be the hardest thing in the world to do. -Curtis Hutson
It’s about time we quit playing church in these services that start at eleven o’clock sharp and end at twelve o’clock dull. -Vance Havner
It takes more grace than I can tell to play the second fiddle well. -Charles Spurgeon
It is the duty of all men in society, publicly and at stated seasons, to worship the Supreme Being, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe. And no subject shall be hurt, molested or restrained in his person, liberty or estate for worshipping God in the manner most agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience, or for his religious profession or sentiments, provided he doth not disturb the public peace or obstruct others in their religious worship. -John Adams
If you are not as close to God as you once were, you needn’t guess who it was that moved. -M. R. DeHaan
When God goes to build a battleship, He doesn’t go looking in a flower garden. -Mordecai Ham
One of the greatest calamities that sin has brought upon us is the debasement of our normal emotions. We laugh at things that are not funny, we find pleasure in acts that are beneath our human dignity, and we rejoice in objects that should have no place in our affections. The objection to “sinful pleasures” that has always been characteristic of the true saint is at bottom simply a protest against the degradation of our human emotions. -A. W. Tozer
Before we can effectively serve others, we must first of all receive full provision from the Lord for our own spiritual needs. He has given us the blessed Holy Spirit to empower us and to lead us. We are sent by the Lord, we are safe in Him, and He provides for our needs. -Perry Rockwood
Nothing makes people go into debt like trying to keep up with people who already are.
