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 –

A Minister Who Does Not Pray – Thomas Coke

A Minister Who Does Not Pray – Thomas Coke

A minister, who prays not, who is not in love with prayer, is not a minister of the Church of God. He is a dry tree, which occupies in vain a place in Christ’s garden. He is an enemy, and not a father, of the people. He is a stranger, who has taken the place of the shepherd, and to whom the salvation of the flock is an indifferent thing.

– Thomas Coke –

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give.

– David Livingstone –
