"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
"Some people read their Bible in Hebrew, some in Greek; I like to read mine in the Holy Ghost." - Smith Wigglesworth
"I am convinced that many evangelicals are not truly and soundly converted. Among the evangelicals it is entirely possible to come into membership, to ooze in by osmosis, to leak through the cells of the church and never know what it means to be born of the Spirit and washed in the blood. A great deal that passes for the deeper life is nothing more or less than basic Christianity. There is nothing deeper about it, and it is where we should have been from the start... What we need is what the old Methodists called a sound conversion. There is a difference between conversion and a sound conversion. People who have never been soundly converted do not have the Spirit to enlighten them. When they read the Sermon on the Mount or the teaching passages of the epistles that tell them how to live or the doctrinal passages that tell how they can live, they are unaffected. The Spirit who wrote them is not witnessing in their hearts because they have not been born of the Spirit. That often happens." - A W Tozer.
"No Task will be so sordid and base, provided you obey your calling in it, that it will not shine and be reckoned very precious in God´s sight." - John Calvin
"When the Lord reveals His will to us and we obey, our mission will be a success regardless of the results." - Chinese house church leaders, Back to Jerusalem movement
"Worship renews the spirit as sleep renews the body." - Richard Clarke Cabot
"It is simply absurd to say you believe, or even want to believe, inHim, if you do not do anything He tells you." - George Macdonald Submitted 9/4/2008 9:27:41 PM | Author: Sermonindex.net
