“Preaching affects time; prayer affects eternity.”
“No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying.”
“There are two indispensable factors to successful Christian living. They are vision and passion.”
“There are three persons living in each of us: the one we think we are, the one other people think we are, and the one God knows we are.”
“It has been well said that there are only three classes of people in the world today: those who are afraid, those who do not know enough to be afraid, and those who know their Bibles.”
“God honors not wisdom nor personality but faith. Faith honors God. And God honors faith.”
“What we can be in union with Christ is one thing; but what we are is quite another.”
“Prayer is not for defence. The shield of faith is for that. Prayer is our secret weapon.”
“The preacher and church, too busy to pray, are busier than the Lord would have them be. If we will give God time, He will give us timeless souls.”
“The devil is mighty; God is Almighty.”
“We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.”
“Brethren, if we will do God’s work in God’s way at God’s time with God’s power, we shall have God’s blessing and the devil’s curses.”
“Ponder this: God has nothing more to give to this world. He gave His only begotten Son for sinners; He gave the Bible for all men; He gave the Holy Ghost to convict the world, and equip the Church.”
