More Great Christian Quotes

It does not appear that these extraordinary gifts of the Holy Ghost were common in the Church for more than two or three centuries. We seldom hear of them after that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; ... From this time they almost
totally ceased; ... The Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the other heathens ... This was the real cause why the extraordinary fits of the Holy Ghost were no longer to be found in the Christian Church; because the Christians were turned Heathens again, and had only a dead form left.

- John Wesley

When the Lord's sheep are a dirty grey, all black sheep are more comfortable.

- Vance Havner

Depend upon it, if you are bent on prayer, the devil will not leave you alone. He will molest you, tantalize you, block you, and will surely find some hindrances, big or little or both. And we sometimes fail because we are ignorant of his devices.  I do not think he minds our praying about things if we leave it at that. What he minds, and opposes steadily, is the prayer that prays on until it is prayed through, assured of the answer.

- Mary Warburton Booth

God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the IMPOSSIBLE.

- William Booth.

Apostolic preaching is not marked by its beautiful diction, or literary polish, or Cleverness of expression, but Operates in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.

- Arthur Wallis

I hope some of you will agree with me that it is of far greater importance that we have better Christians than that we have more of them! If we have any spiritual concerns, our most pressing obligation is to do all in our power to obtain a revival that will result in a reformed, revitalized, purified church... followers of Christ must become personally and vitally involved in the death and resurrection of Christ. And this requires repentance, prayer, watchfulness, self-denial, detachment from the world, humility, obedience and cross-carrying.

- A.W. Tozer

He is no fool who gives away what he can not keep, to gain that which he can not lose.

- Author Unknown
