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.

How to Pray – Paul Gerhardt

How to Pray – Paul Gerhardt

Pray absolutely for those things you may pray for absolutely.
Pray conditionally for those things you may pray for conditionally.
For those things you can’t pray for … don’t.

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.

Jesus Deals with Money – John MacArthur

Jesus Deals with Money – John MacArthur

Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables of Jesus deal with money. One out of ten verses in the New Testament deals with that subject. Scripture offers about five hundred verses on prayer, fewer than five hundred on faith, and over two thousand on money. The believer’s attitude toward money and possessions is determinative.

A Zealous Man – JC Ryle

A Zealous Man – JC Ryle

A zealous man feels that like a lamp he is made to burn; and if consumed in burning, he has but done the work for which God appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If he cannot preach and work and give money, he will cry and sigh and pray.

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.
