Any church that is not seriously involved in helping fulfill the Great Commission has forfeited its biblical right to exist.
We talk of the second coming, half the world has never heard of the first.
Oh my friends, we are loaded with countless church activities, while the real work of the church, that of evangelizing and winning the lost is almost entirely neglected.
Oh, to realize that souls, precious, never dying souls, are perishing all around us, going out into the blackness of darkness and despair, eternally lost, and yet to feel no anguish, shed no tears, know no travail! How little we know of the compassion of Jesus!
The world does not need sermons; it needs a message. You can go to seminary and learn how to preach sermons, but you will have to go to God to get messages.
I am perfectly confident that the man who does not spend hours alone with God will never know the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The world must be left outside until God alone fills the vision…God has promised to answer prayer. It is not that He is unwilling, for the fact is, He is more willing to give than we are to receive. But the trouble is, we are not ready…
It matters not how spiritual a church may profess to be, if souls are not saved, something is radically wrong, and the professed spirituality is simply a false
experience, a delusion of the devil. People who are
satisfied to meet together simply to have a good time
among themselves are far away from God. Real
spirituality always has an outcome.
The supreme task of the church is the evangelization of the world. No one has the right to hear the gospel twice until everyone has had an opportunity to hear it at least once.
Oh, how few find time for prayer! There is time for everything else, time to sleep and time to eat, time to read the newspaper and the novel, time to visit friends, time for everything else under the sun, but-no time for prayer, the most important of all things, the one great essential!
The heart of the human problem, is the problem of the human heart.
The church that does not evangelize will fossilize.
I want Thy plan, O God, for my life. May I be happy and contented whether in the homeland or on the foreign field; whether married or alone, in happiness or sorrow, health or sickness, prosperity or adversity — I want Thy plan, O God, for my life. I want it; oh, I want it.
Our work is to preach the gospel and we must not be sidetracked.
The light that shines the farthest will shine the brightest at home.
The Lord did not tell us to build beautiful churches, but to evangelize the world
We all want to do the will of God, and we know that there is nothing nearer to His heart than the evangelization of the world.
The mission of the church is missions.
No one has the right to hear the gospel twice, while there remains someone who has not heard it once.
In the Irish Revival of 1859, people became so weak that they
could not get back to their homes. Men and women would fall by
the wayside and would be found hours later pleading with God to
save their souls. They felt that they were slipping into hell and that
nothing else in life mattered but to get right with God… To them
eternity meant everything. Nothing else was of any consequence.
They felt that if God did not have mercy on them and save them,
they were doomed for all time to come.
He who would preach powerfully must pray effectively.
I have seen the vision and for self I cannot live; Life is less than worthless till my all I give.
Let me say that it is not a question of us getting more of the Holy Spirit, but rather of the Holy Spirit getting more of us.
The only generation that can reach this generation is our generation.
You must go or send a substitute.
There can be no prevailing in prayer without travailing in prayer.
