Good Quotes

I've had these quotes saved in my inbox from my email subscription to What They Said, (one of our favorite websites listed on the side of our blog).  These are a few that I've saved that I wanted to share on here.

"The world today is looking for, and desperately needs, true Christians. I am never tired of saying that what the Church needs to do is not to organize evangelistic campaigns and attract outside people, but to begin herself to live the Christian life."  -Martyn Lloyd-Jones

"It is often ignorantly and frivolously charged against Christian men that it is selfish in them to seek heaven and glory for their own souls; but no man who is truly seeking salvation will be moved by that accusation. When men really begin to seek their salvation, and to turn their faces to the glory of heaven, then it is that all selfish and ignoble desires receive their death-blow. It is not selfish, surely, for the diseased to seek healing, or the hungry food, or the prodigal his father’s house. So far from this being a sign that the heart is selfish, there is no surer sign that it is being sanctified." -Alexander Whyte

"I say the answer is simple, but it is not easy for it requires that we obey God rather than man, and that always brings down the wrath of the religious majority.  It is not a question of knowing what to do; we can easily learn that from the Scriptures.  It is a question of whether or not we have the courage to do it." -A.W. Tozer

"Ought we not to be more thorough in our service, not simply doing well that which will be seen and notice, but as our Father makes many a flower to bloom unseen in the lonely desert, so to do all that we can do, as under His eye, though no other eye ever take note of it?" -J. Hudson Taylor

“To argue from mercy to sin is the devil's logic” -James Janeway

"To forsake Christ for the world, or a lust, is to leave a treasure for a trifle; a mountain of gold, for a heap of dung; the pure, lasting fountain, for the muddy, broken cistern; eternity for a moment; reality for a shadow; all things for nothing." -William Jenkyn
