"Keep looking up...with your face down." - Disciple
One day a lady criticized D. L. Moody for his methods of evangelism in attempting to win people to the Lord. Moody´s reply was: "I agree with you. I don´t like the way I do it either. Tell me, how do you do it?" The lady replied, "I don´t do it." Moody responded "I like my way of doing it better than your way of not doing it."
"If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don´t like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself." - Augustine.
"It is the eyes of other people that ruin us. If all but myself were blind, I should want neither a fine house nor fine furniture." - Benjamin Franklin.
"My greatest thought is my accountability to God." - Daniel Webster
"´Not called!´ did you say? ´Not heard the call,´ I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father´s house and bid their brothers and sisters and servants and masters not to come there. Then look Christ in the face -- whose mercy you have professed to obey -- and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world." -- William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army
"The Christian life is an impossible one and it isn´t for everyone. You must enter through the narrow where you must leave everything behind and be stripped naked of yourself. You must get rid of your pride. Many so-called christians are on the wide road leading to destruction. They may have all the outward signs of being a Christian (go to church, serve, read their Bible, pray, etc.) but there is no inward change of repentance." - Unknown
