Preserving fruit of my labor – George Whitefield

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.”

We don’t have to do exceptional things – Oswald Chambers

We don’t have to do exceptional things – Oswald Chambers

The “show business,” which is so incorporated into our view of Christian work today, has caused us to drift far from our Lord’s conception of discipleship. It is instilled in us to think that we have to do exceptional things for God; we have not. We have to be exceptional in ordinary things, to be holy in mean streets, among mean people, surrounded by sordid sinners. That is not learned in five minutes.

Save all you can – Dwight L. Moody

Save all you can – Dwight L. Moody

I look upon this world as a wrecked vessel. God has given me a lifeboat and said to me: “Moody save all you can.”

Tell Them – Paul Washer

Tell Them – Paul Washer

Instead of telling them God has a wonderful plan for their life — tell them who God is.

The ONE Goal – Steve Case

The ONE Goal – Steve Case

Ask missionaries (regardless of age – 12 or 112) and they’ll tell you they have one goal – God. God first. God last. God in all things. Not to go out and feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, make busy with conversion activity, but God first. With God as the goal, the homeless get a roof, the hungry get fed, the cold get warmed, the lonely get a friend, and the wanderer finds a way.

Taking the Gospel too seriously – Leonard Ravenhill

Taking the Gospel too seriously – Leonard Ravenhill

Many pastors criticize me for taking the Gospel so seriously. But do they really think that on Judgment Day, Christ will chastise me, saying, “Leonard, you took Me too seriously?”
