John Bunyan Gems

He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find him the rest of the day.

If you have sinned, do not lie down without repentance; for the lack of repentance after one has sinned makes the heart yet harder and harder.

When you pray, rather let your heart be without words than your words without heart.

Pray often; for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan.

Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.

You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed.

One leak will sink a ship: and one sin will destroy a sinner.

Temptations, when we meet them at first, are as the lion that roared upon Samson; but if we overcome them, the next time we see them we shall find a nest of honey within them.

Words easy to be understood do often hit the mark; when high and learned ones do only pierce the air.

– John Bunyan
