A Call To Holiness

“The question isn’t were you challenged. The question is were you changed” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

“A servant of God has but one Master” ~ George Mueller

“Nowhere can we get to know the holiness of God, and come under His influence and power, except in the inner chamber. It has been well said: “No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God.” ~ Andrew Murray

“An unholy church! it is useless to the world, and of no esteem among men. It is an abomination, hell’s laughter, heaven’s abhorrence. The worst evils which have ever come upon the world have been brought upon her by an unholy church.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

“It is an undoubted truth that every doctrine that comes from God, leads to God; and that which doth not tend to promote holiness is not of God.” ~ George Whitefield

“It is because of the hasty and superficial conversation with God that the sense of sin is so weak and that no motives have power to help you to hate and flee from sin as you should.” ~ A.W. Tozer

“Christians don’t tell lies they just go to church and sing them” ~ A.W. Tozer

“Christ will be master of the heart, and sin must be mortified. If your life is unholy, then your heart is unchanged, and you are an unsaved person. The Savior will sanctify His people, renew them, give them a hatred of sin, and a love of holiness. The grace that does not make a man better than others is a worthless counterfeit. Christ saves His people, not IN their sins, but FROM their sins. Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

“We are not to be isolated but insulated, moving in the midst of evil but untouched by it.” ~ Vance Havner

“There is no shortcut to holiness; it must be the business of our whole lives.” ~ William Wilberforce

“It is not great talents or great learning or great preachers that God needs, but men great in holiness.” ~ E. M. Bounds

“There is nothing destroyed by sanctification but that which would destroy us.” ~ William Jenkyn

“Any concept of grace that makes us feel more comfortable sinning is not biblical grace. God’s grace never encourages us to live in sin, on the contrary, it empowers us to say no to sin and yes to truth.” ~ Randy Alcorn

“In the New Testament church it says they were all amazed – And now in our churches everybody wants to be amused.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

“The men that have been the most heroic for God have had the greatest devotional lives.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

“Would we send our daughters off to have sex if it would benefit our country? Yet, we send our sons off to kill when we think it would benefit our country!” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

“First we practice sin, then defend it, then boast of it.” ~ Thomas Manton

“Study universal holiness of life. Your whole usefulness depends on this, for your sermons last but an hour or two; your life preaches all the week. If Satan can only make a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating, he has ruined your ministry. Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your thoughts, your words from God. Luther spent his best three hours in prayer.” ~ Robert Murray McCheyne

“It is not great talents God blesses so much as great likeness to Jesus. A holy minister is anawful weapon in the hand of God.” ~ Robert Murray M’Cheyne

“The way to preserve the peace of the church is to preserve its purity.” ~ Matthew Henry

“Some people do not like to hear much of repentance; but I think it is so necessary that if I should die in the pulpit, I would desire to die preaching repentance, and if out of the pulpit I would desire to die practicing it.” ~ Matthew Henry

“Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by this heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils.” ~ William Gurnall

“Repentance, to be of any avail, must work a change of heart and conduct.” ~ Theodore Ledyard Cuyler

“No man should desire to be happy who is not at the same time holy. He should spend his efforts in seeking to know and do the will of God, leaving to Christ the matter of how happy he should be.” ~ A. W. Tozer

“You knew one thing about a man who was carrying a cross out of the city… you knew he wasn’t coming back.” ~ A.W. Tozer

“Don’t presume upon the mercy of God and so encourage yourself in sin.” ~ Jonathan Edwards

“Entertainment is the devils substitute for joy, and when you get satisfaction out of that dumb thing, your joy will diminish.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

“There is nothing destroyed by sanctification but that which would destroy us.” ~ William Jenkyn

“As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst things.” ~ William Jenkyn

“God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him.” ~ Andrew Murray

“The nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by the present-day evangelist. He announces a Savior from Hell rather than a Savior from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived, for there are multitudes who wish to escape the Lake of fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and worldliness.” ~ A.W. Pink
