Called to Missions or to Stay at Home? – Hudson Taylor

Called to Missions or to Stay at Home? – Hudson Taylor

It will not do to say that you have no special call to go to the mission field.  With these facts before you and with the command of the Lord Jesus to go and preach the gospel to every creature, you need rather to ascertain whether you have a special call to stay at home.

How do you do the Lord’s work? – Corrie Ten Boom

How do you do the Lord’s work? – Corrie Ten Boom

Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.

Praying for revival – Arthur Pink

Praying for revival – Arthur Pink

It’s true that (many) are praying for a worldwide revival. But it would be more timely, and more scriptural, for prayer to be made to the Lord of the harvest, that He would raise up and thrust forth laborers who would fearlessly and faithfully preach those truths which are calculated to bring about a revival.

A demonstration of the supernatural – Duncan Campbell

A demonstration of the supernatural – Duncan Campbell

The average man is not going to be impressed by our publicity, our posters or our programs, but let there be a demonstration of the supernatural in the realm of religion, and at once man is arrested.

People of prayer – Thomas Coke

People of prayer – Thomas Coke

A real minister of the gospel is a man of prayer. Prayer is his grand employment, his safety, his first and perpetual duty; and under grace, the grand source of his consolation. Our instructions will be always barren, if they be not watered with our tears and prayers.

The Reason the Church Exists – CS Lewis

The Reason the Church Exists – CS Lewis

The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became Man for no other purpose.

Jesus and Jesus Alone – Count Zinzendorf

Jesus and Jesus Alone – Count Zinzendorf

I have but one passion: It is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ. 

– Count Nicolaus Ludwn Zinzendorf –
