Christians should live in the world, but not be filled with it. A ship lives in the water; but if the water gets into the ship, she goes to the bottom. So Christians may live in the world; but if the world gets into them, they sink.
Moses spent forty years thinking he was somebody; forty years learning he was nobody; and forty years discovering what God can do with a nobody.
God doesn’t expect the impossible from us. He wants us to expect the impossible from Him!
The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.
Give your life to God; he can do more with it than you can!
I prayed for Faith, and thought that some day Faith would come down and strike me like lightning. But Faith did not seem to come. One day I read in the tenth chapter of Romans, ‘Now Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God’. I had closed my Bible, and prayed for Faith. I now opened my Bible, and began to study, and Faith has been growing ever since.
Joy is love exalted; peace is love in response; long-suffering is love enduring; gentleness is love in society; goodness is love in action; faith is love on the battlefield; meekness is love in tough situations; and temperance is love in training.
I have never met a man who has given me as much trouble as myself.
I’d rather be able to pray than to be a great preacher; Jesus Christ never taught his disciples how to preach, but only how to pray.
Everybody wants to enjoy heaven after they die, but they don’t want to be heavenly-minded while they live.
Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible, the other 99 will read the Christian.
There will be no peace in any soul until it is willing to obey the voice of God.
We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.
He who kneels the most, stands the best.
Those who say they will forgive but can’t forget, simply bury the hatchet but leave the handle out for immediate use.
Some people think God does not like to be troubled with our constant coming and asking. The way to trouble God is not to come at all.
In our prayers, we talk to God, in our Bible study, God talks to us, and we had better let God do most of the talking.
The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.
The difference between listening to a radio sermon and going to church…is almost like the difference between calling your girl on the phone and spending an evening with her.
Faith makes all things possible… love makes all things easy.
There is no greater honour than to be the instrument in God’s hands of leading one person out of the kingdom of Satan into the glorious light of Heaven.
The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick alongside it
God will not accept a divided heart. He must be absolute monarch. There is not room in your heart for two thrones. You cannot mix the worship of the true God with the worship of any other god more than you can mix oil and water. It cannot be done. There is not room for any other throne in the heart if Christ is there. If worldliness should come in, godliness would go out.
Be humble, or you’ll stumble.
Moses spent forty years in the king’s palace thinking that he was somebody; then he lived forty years in the wilderness finding out that without GOD he was a nobody; finally he spent forty more years discovering how a nobody with GOD can be a somebody.
