Any manipulation of the Scriptures to make them speak peace to the natural man is evil and can only lead to ruin.
– A. W. Tozer
At any point in all of eternity, we can say, ‘This is just the beginning’. How wonderful for those who are in Christ and how unimaginably dreadful for those who are not.
– Leonard Ravenhill
People approach salvation today in such a cold, formal and business-like sort of way, that it appears as though they are doing God a favor in condescending to receive His offer of redemption. Their eyes are dry, their sense of sin is absent, and there is no sign of repentance and contrition. But if there was conviction, if they came with hearts bowed down, with brokenness and contrition, and came trembling with the burning life and death question of the Philippian jailor–“What must I do to be saved?”–then what kind of converts they would be!
– Oswald J. Smith
The Word of God is a looking glass to show us our spots and the blood of Christ is a fountain to wash them away.
– Thomas Watson
Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly out of it without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our blessed Redeemer. At the very least, let us see to it that when the devil gets news of our departure from the battlefield, he will throw a thanksgiving party in hell.
– C. T. Studd
