Preserving fruit of my labor – George Whitefield

“My brother Wesley acted wisely,” Whitefield said. “The souls that were awakened under his ministry he joined in societies, and  thus preserved the fruit of his labor. This I neglected, and my people are a rope of sand.”

Give up ALL for Christ – George Whitefield

There is no being a Christian without giving up all for Christ. We must all have the spirit of martyrdom, though we may not all die martyrs.

Laying Down Your Life to Peach? – George Whitefield

The good old Puritans, I believe, never preached better than when in danger of being taken to prison as soon as they had finished their sermon. And however the church may be at peace now, yet I am persuaded, unless you go forth with the same temper, you will never preach with the same demonstration of the Spirit and of power. Study, therefore, my brethren, I beseech you by the mercies of God in Christ Jesus, study your hearts as well as books; ask yourselves again and again whether you would preach for Christ, if you were sure to lay down your lives for so doing?

True Faith in Jesus – George Whitefield

A true faith in Jesus Christ will not suffer us to be idle. No, it is an active, lively, restless principle; it fills the heart, so that it cannot be easy till it is doing something for Jesus Christ.
