The Glory Of God: Thoughts Through The Ages

“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.” ~~C.H. Spurgeon

“The gradual disappearance of the idea and feeling of majesty from the Church is a sign and a portent. Our God has now become our servant to wait on our will. “The Lord is my shepherd,” we say, instead of “The Lord is my shepherd,” and the difference is as wide as the world”.~~A. W. Tozer

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

“The nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by the present-day evangelist. He announces a Saviour from Hell rather than a Saviour 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

“Beware of no man more than of yourself; we carry our worst enemies within us.”~~C.H. Spurgeon

“An idle life and a holy heart is a contradiction.”~~Thomas Brooks

“To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.”~~A. W. Tozer

“Do you realize this? That if you were to somehow purpose to, from this day on, perfectly please God and succeed in doing it, that that perfect obedience, from this moment, would not acquire in the remainder of your life, enough merit to atone for one past sin, because God exacts and God demands perfect obedience and there’s no merit for giving him the minimal requirement.”~~Paris Reidhead

“The Lord commonly gives riches to foolish people, to whom he gives nothing else.”~~Martin Luther

“I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him.”~~Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.”~~Vance Havner

“If I see aright, the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is, rather, a new bright ornament upon the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christianity. The old cross slew men, the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh; the new cross encourages it.”~~A. W. Tozer

“I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.”~~Martin Luther

“There is a necessity for true worship among us. If God is Who He says He is and if we are the believing people of God we claim to be, we must worship Him…Oh, how I wish I could adequately set forth the glory of the One who is worthy to be the object of our worship! I do believe that if our new converts–the babes in Christ–could be made to see His thousand attributes and even partially comprehend His being, they would become faint with a yearning desire to worship and honor and acknowledge Him, now and forever.” ~~A. W. Tozer

“I have loved to hear my Lord spoken of, and wherever I have seen the print of His shoe in the earth, there have I coveted to put mine also.”~~John Bunyan

“I never made a sacrifice. We ought not to talk of “sacrifice” when we remember the great sacrifice which He made Who left His Father’s throne on high to give Himself up for us.”~~David Livingston

“Christ is either Lord of all or He is not Lord at all.”~~James Hudson Taylor

“If you get excited about serving the Lord, you won’t have to practice separation–everyone else will.”~~Pete Cowling

“Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties.”~~Charles Spurgeon

“God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His gospel out in the world. God is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God.”~~H. A. Ironside
