“Are the things you are living for worth Christ dying for?”
Leonard Ravenhill

“Too long and far too often, misguided leaders try to cramp and constrict their people in the impediments of human design. We become so organized, so structured, so encased with rigid rules we cannot move forward with God.”
From the book “David, the Time of Saul’s Tyranny”

“There are two great reasons we don’t have revival:
1. We are content without it
2. It’s too costly”
Leonard Ravenhill

“Lord grant that the fire in my heart may melt the lead in my feet”

“Christ’s call is to feed the hungry, not the full, to save the lost, not the stiff-necked; not to call the scoffers but sinners to repentance; not to build and furnish comfortable chapels, churches, and cathedrals at home in which to rock Christian professors to sleep by means of clever essays, stereotyped prayers, and artistic musical performances, but to raise living churches of souls among the destitute, to capture men from the devil’s clutches and snatch them away from the very jaws of Hell, to enlist and train them for Jesus and to make them into an Almighty army of God. But this can only be accomplished by a red-hot, unconventional, unfettered Holy Ghost religion, where neither church nor state, neither man n or traditions are worshipped or preached, but only Christ and Him crucified. Not to confess Christ by fancy collars, church steeples or richly embroidered altar cloths, but by reckless sacrifice and heroism in the foremost trenches.”
CT Studd

“I was called to preach at the age of 16. But no one invited me to preach in their church, so I preached on the street…And my favourite place to preach is still on the street.”
Heidi Baker

“The people who influence us are those who stood unconsciously for the right thing; they are like the stars and the lilies, and the joy of God flows through them all the time.”
Oswald Chambers

“Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell. I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.”
CT Studd

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“We sit in church and sing ‘Let the earth hear His voice’ – how? One way you prove you love God is that you’re obedient to Him. And He says ‘Go into all the world’ not into ‘all the churches’. Get in the streets and preach. Let them see you burning with a holy love. Let them see its transformed you from selfishness and self-interest and self-seeking and self-glory and you’re consumed with the fire of God.”
Leonard Ravenhill

“When once your back is broken, you will yield ever after to the slightest touch from God.”
Watchman Nee

“It is possible to know all about doctrine and yet not know Jesus. The soul is in danger when knowledge of doctrine outsteps intimate touch with Jesus. Why was Mary weeping? Doctrine was no more to Mary than the grass under her feet. Any Pharisee could have made a fool of Mary doctrinally, but one thing they could not ridicule out of her was the fact that Jesus had cast seven demons out of her; yet His blessings were nothing in comparison to Himself.”
Oswald Chambers

“Oh how easy it is to exaggerate a virtue until it becomes a vice.”
CH Spurgeon

____________________________________________________________________________________________

“Discipleship is based on devotion to Jesus Christ, not on adherence to a belief or creed….Today we have substituted credal belief for personal belief and that is why so many are devoted to causes and so few devoted to Jesus Christ.”
Oswald Chambers
____________________________________________________________________________________________

“There is no alternative to prayer and obedience.”
Leonard Ravenhill

“The wounded soldiers serve best.”
Dr Ravi Zacharias

“God says to His church: ‘go to the starving widow’ – if you move towards the starving in a time of famine, not only will she be provided for, you will be provided for. It will unlock the resources of Heaven.”
Carter Conlon

“We will a thousand times sooner die trusting only in God than live trusting in man.”
CT STudd

“The greatest triumphs are those that have survived the greatest darkness in love’s service.”
