Great Quotes by Vance Havner

"You can't tell it like it is, if you don't believe it like it was." 

"God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever." 

"The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs."

"Most church members live so far below the standard, you would have to backslide to be in fellowship with them." 

"If you are a Christian, you are not a citizen of this world trying to get to heaven; you are a citizen of heaven making your way through this world. " 

"Doing leads more surely to talking than talking to doing."

"There is a trend today that would put a new robe on the prodigal son while he is still feeding hogs. Some would put the ring on his finger while he still in the pigsty. Others would paint the pigsty and advocate bigger and better hog-pens."

"The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal, it would seem to people to be abnormal."

"We are suffering today from a species of Christianity as dry as dust, as cold as ice, as pale as a corpse, and as dead as King Tut. We are suffering not from a lack of correct heads but of consumed hearts."
