Monday Quotes

“Christ-less Christianity sounds contradictory but it exists as a real phenomenon in our day. Much that is being done In Christ’s name is false to Christ it that it is conceived by the flesh, incorporates fleshly methods, and seeks fleshly ends. Christ is mentioned from time to time in the same way and for the same reason that a self-seeking politician mentions Lincoln and the flag, to provide a sacred front for carnal activities and to deceive the simple hearted listeners. The giveaway is that Christ is not central: he is not all and in all.” – A. W. Tozer

“A man, especially a Christian man in leadership, has to pay the price of leadership and there are some things he cannot afford to do at all. If he is not prepared to pay the price of leadership and walk with God and see in every decision to please Him, and if he is in any doubt whatsoever to avoid it, the sooner he resigns from the Christian leadership the better. The example is going to count more than anything else.” – Alan Redpath

“Our business is to present that which is timeless (truth, Christ) in the particular language of our own age. The bad preacher does exactly the opposite: he takes the ideas of our own age and tricks them out in the traditional language of Christianity.” – C. S. Lewis

“The preaching that this world needs most is the sermons in shoes that are walking with Jesus Christ.” – D. L. Moody

“How long shall we trust in man’s programming to accomplish the work of His Spirit in men’s souls?” – Jim Elliott

“The reason why congregations have been so dead is because they have dead men preaching to them. How can dead men beget living children?” – George Whitefield

“God is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God.” – Harry Ironside
