Top Highlights

“It does not require great learning to be a Christian, and to be convinced of the truth of the Bible. It requires an honest heart, and a willingness to obey God.” (source)

“Our power in drawing men to Christ springs chiefly from the fullness of our personal joy in him, and the nearness of our personal communion with him. The countenance that reflects most of Christ, and shines most with his love and grace, is most fitted to attract the gaze of a careless, giddy world, and win their restless souls from the fascinations of creature-love and creature-beauty. A ministry of power must be the fruit of a holy, peaceful, loving intimacy with the Lord.” (source)

“Joy is love exulting; peace is love in repose; long suffering is love on trial; gentleness is love in society; goodness is love in action; faith, is love on the battlefield; meekness is love at school; and temperance is love in training.” (source)

“Nothing so quickens prayer as trial. It sends us, at once, to our knees, and shuts the door of our closet behind us.” (source)

“My friends, it is one thing to go to church or chapel; it is quite another thing to go to God.” (source)
